I have enjoyed this topic not just for the quotes but for the quotes that are selected and by who. I mentioned in earlier post that I have file of them that are difficult to reach at this time but noticed several W.C. quotes and pulled this one from web.

"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak, Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."

There are two types of people: the bad guys and those who are prone to bad behaviour.

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

lol.  I've seen this before.  It's great!  It sums up so much in such a succinct in funny way.  

 

It's not what I'd call a quote though.  But you could start a thread based on it for sure.   ;)

That's pretty much all greek politicians.

The Great Boston Red Sox just got the win on Opening Day at Fenway park so I took to internet for this bit of inspiration.

I had thought this account was deleted. Only being a member since April of 2017? Hmm. Can't be the original astros/malcom.jansen, can it? It is clearly a revived, restarted version if so. Old astros had a Swiss flag. This new one, although a platinum scout, has an American one on the leaderboard. So it must be an astros2.

Any confirmation from malcom.jansen? By the way, the profile banner for this astros about feces stinks. :) Old astros was more clever. Such as the signature he used to use about "60% of the time it works every time." Anyone remember? Do we 100% know who you are even 60% of the time, malcom? :D

I requested a name change. TheOptician or Nortrom can confirm that I am old astros.

As far as my profile feed goes, a number of users look to my for dietary and lifestyle advice. I am offended that you think my status is a joke.

Well, I think you're taking it a bit too seriously, my friend, but sorry if I've offended. If you are he then you can certainly take the compliment on your previous cleverness. If biting, the comments of the old astros were always dependably witty.

But just so I'm clear, you said you requested a name change to astros? From what? Are you saying that malcom.jansen is no longer?
