    "Love many, trust few, always paddle your own canoe."

    I almost thought this to be a Shakespeare quote.

    Not a quote so much as a state of mind:

    "Mess with the best, die like the rest"

    Heard It for the first time in a film called "Hackers" where a very young Angelina Jolie played a supporting role.

    ...he saw the flaming, restless nest of the fire a short distance away, and the silhouettes of people around it, and someone's hand adding a branch. The crickets leapt crepitating; from time to time there came a sweet whiff of burning juniper; and above the black alpestrine steppe, above the silken sea, the enormous, all-engulfing sky, dove grey with stars, made one's head spin, and suddenly Martin again experienced a feeling he had known on more than one occasion as a child: an unbearable intensification of the senses, a magical and demanding impulse, the presence of something for which it alone was worth living.

    I feel it is hard to pick favorites, I value any quote that can serve as a rule of thumb. Here are a few.

    My two top favorites:

    "What I can not create I can not understand." - Richard Feynman

    "The full use of your powers along lines of excellence. " - definition of "happiness" by John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)



    A few on how to act:

    "If you are going through hell, keep going." - Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

    "Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." - Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956)

    "Hope is not a course of action." - USMC Colonel Michael O'Neal

    "Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play." - Heraclitus, Greek philosopher (500 B.C.)

    "Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact." - George Eliot (1819-1880)

    "When you have to kill a man, it costs nothing to be polite. " - Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

    "You can get more with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone. " - Al Capone (1899-1947)

    "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them. " - Mark Twain (1835-1910)



    And a few more that I find amusing:

    "Blondes make the best victims. They're like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints." - Alfred Hitchcock

    "A narcissist is someone better looking than you are. " - Gore Vidal

    "No excellent soul is exempt from a mixture of madness." - Aristotle

    "I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. " - Galileo Galilei

    "Now, now my good man, this is no time for making enemies." - Voltaire (1694-1778) on his deathbed in response to a priest asking that he renounce Satan.
