It's Friday, been a long week. I was thinking about somethings that had transpired and then came across this quote. Enjoy the weekend all !   ;)  :lol:  :)

 

“Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.” 
― Dale Carnegie

Gender is like the World Trade Center -- There used to be 2 of them but now it’s too sensitive of a topic to talk about.

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.

“Somewhere in the world there is a defeat for everyone. Some are destroyed by defeat, and some made small and mean by victory. Greatness lives in one who triumphs equally over defeat and victory.” 
― John SteinbeckThe Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knight

 

​I would like to think this applies to Stratego and Soccer/Football . 

 

“An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.” 

― Millard Fillmore

From the English corner...

"Apart" is an adverb. You were going for "A part". :)
