"A man who can't think is an idiot.
A man who won't think is a fool.
A man who doesn't dare to think is a coward"
I love words that inspire!
A few of my FAVORITE QUOTES!!!
Oooooh FUN, I LOVE this one!
"Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so." - Bertrand Russell
"KNOWLEDGE is POWER!"
"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.~ Thomas Jefferson, to Archibald Stuart, 1791"
"Believe nothing merely because you have been told it." ~ Buddha "
"Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone." ~ Frederic Bastiat
"More Law, Less Justice. ~ Cicero"
"A day in the mountains is worth a mountain of books." & "Going to THE WOODS is like going HOME" ~ John Muir
"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect, had intended for us to forgo their use." - Galileo Galilei
"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful." - Seneca the Younger
"DEFEND YOUR FREEDOMS BEFORE THEY ARE GONE!" ~ Me
"FREEDOM is not only for YOU, or ME... But even for those YOU DISAGREE WITH! If you can rationalize the taking away of FREEDOMS from those whom you disagree with, then YOU TRULY DON'T BELIEVE IN FREEDOM. Just think, YOUR FREEDOMS could be next, & don't forget, FREEDOM IS FOR EVERYONE not just YOU!" ~ By Me
"Those who give up liberty for the sake of security deserve neither liberty nor security." ~ Ben Franklin
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Twain
Oh yes, Tracy.... the one above is AWESOME/a favorite of mine as well!!! Glad that you had reminded me of it!
This is too hard...There's so many I love....I have them all over my house...

"LIFE IS NOT A JOURNEY TO THE GRAVE
WITH THE INTENTION
OF ARRIVING SAFELY IN A PRETTY
AND WELL PRESERVED BODY,
BUT RATHER TO SKID IN BROADSIDE,
THOROUGHLY USED UP,
TOTALLY WORN OUT,
AND LOUDLY PROCLAIMING
WOW - WHATTA RIDE!!!"
One of my favorites.
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, Geneva]"And now, farewell to kindness, humanity and gratitude. I have substituted myself for Providence in rewarding the good; may the God of vengeance now yield me His place to punish the wicked." - Edmond Dantes, The Count of Monte Cristo
Gee, and I was afraid to start mine from Monty Python......
Well one that I really like, aside from my sigline, is from a late friend of mine. (If the other its deemed inapropriate it can be deleted.)
Dont sweat the petty stuff but always pet the sweaty stuff.
It's better to be pissed off than pissed on!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed - Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'"
-Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy
"All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me - so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer."
"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."
Mess with me... and you mess with the trailer park, bub.
Don't worry, we are with the govt and we're here to help.
Now I got quarters in my loafers tryin' to fight inflation
When it only used to take a cent....
Sometimes I wish I was back in my crash pad days before I knew what cash flow meant...
Seems everybody's joggin' or heavy into health shit
Don't tell me that I ought to get rolfed..
'Cause I love cajun martinis and playin' afternoon golf ..
Lakes below the mountains
Flow into the sea
Like oils applied to canvas
They permeate through me ....
And there's that one particular harbour
Sheltered from the wind...
Where the children play on the shore each day
And all are safe within
A govt that abrogates any of the bill of rights,with or without majoritarian approval, forever acts illegitamately, becomes tyrannical, and loses the moral right to govern. Jeff Snyder, Nation of Cowards
Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for the ones who didn't. Thomas Jefferson
The american dream, you have to be asleep to believe it. ?
3 reasons to own a gun: To protect yourself and your family, to hunt delicious game, and keep King George out of your face. Crusty the Clown
