Murf#2,

Are you trying to inject politics into this thread?
Didn't you get the invite to that weird politics place from Norman when the F30 Pol/Rel pit was ended?

Not at all, they are both very funny and they often get quoted here in Canada. And really many great quotes come from politicians, Thatcher, Churchill, Reagan, JFK, Roosevelt (both) Trudeau Sr. and those quotes are generally political in nature aren't they......

If those are your favorite quotes, you need to read more & watch CNN less, maybe?

a-frickin-men.

as a youth sports coach for most of the last 15 years..."will beats skill" was a go-to rally cry from me to my kids.

unfortunately the tic-toc generation is seeing far too many examples of "easy" success...it's an uphill battle for us to instill the value of persistence and determination.

So here's the thing. It seems that perhaps your response is the type of thing that has got politics banned on this forum. I'm sorry my quotes don't live up to your standard, and I appreciate your suggestion that I change new sources and read more of the books that you think are good.

How about this one:

Be the change you want to see in the world.

The only direction one can coast is downhill - me.

Hatred corrodes the container in which it is carried. - Alan Simpson at GHWB's funeral

Humor is the universal solvent against the abrasive elements of life. - Also Alan Simpson at GHWB's funeral.

I'm not certain what Simpson's sources were for the 2 quotes.
