What is your favourite quote and why?

I would like to begin here a compendium of those bits of wisdom humanity perceives to be most true or without exception.

It is not necessary to name who might be credited with saying your selection, as no such person can honestly claim to have been without some outside inspiration, which catalyzed their creativity and moved them to express their insight.
Much like what you are called here to do.

If you yourself have distilled some wisdom through reflection, please allow me to present you this moment to pass it on here for consideration or perhaps start your own string.

The purpose of all this is to provide a most efficient tool for correlating the most valid ideas about morality and what we perceive to be real or important across culture or socialization. I would then like to work with you to turn this soil and see what new things (ideas) might grow. Food for the soul.

You are encouraged to emulate the creative process here so: COPY, COMBINE and TRANSFORM! Help me correlate.

Please comment in a constructive way if you agree or not with anything posted here and explain why.

Topics: education quotes

      Reminds me of a conversation recently, my buddies and I were having over a beer, while talking about the great day of skiing. One guy was saying that the new hip (replaced last year) is doing really well...another guy said his knee replacements are working good...three of the guys had reconstructive surgery to fix shoulders...one of the guys suddenly looked puzzled/comtemplative and asked..."are there any good parts at all at this table"??? We had SUCH a GREAT laugh:>)

      Energy creates energy,
      It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich"
