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

        Mar 21 2012: Think about your first day at school ..think about the first day at a new job..think about a new country and a new language a new date, the first swimm at the lake simple things that demand from us a bit of comintment and "Valentia"...Mark Twains remark is a result of what he experience along his life a very savy man... with the absolut precence of fear and every event we have to take every step with courage.
        I come from a land were young children take full responsability of their lifes, and No is not child labor is passion for living were the day starts before the sunrise and ends when everything is taking care off before one can go to sleep this my friend is the world of the "Valientes". ..No is not a song but it could turn into an inspiring song Indeed.
