    Quotes

    I came across a great quote and, since it's been a year and a half since the last quote thread, I'm starting a new one:

    I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones.
    John Cage (the avant-garde US composer)
    Bruce in CT

    Madness is something rare in individuals but in groups, parties, peoples, ages it is the rule. Friedrich Nietzsche

    None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.
    --- Ralph Waldo Emerson

    The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
    --- e e cummings

    The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.

    --- Thomas Szasz

    The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.
    --- Thomas A. Edison

    Money frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy.
    --- Groucho Marx

    I know fear is an obstacle for some people, but it is an illusion to me....Failure always made me try harder next time.
    --- Michael Jordan

    It is not our abilities that show what we truly are, it is our choices.
    --- Dumbledor

    I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life! To put to rest all that was not life... And not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived...
    ---Henry David Thoreau (Dead Poet's Society)
    All the best,
    Ron
    You must do the thing you think you cannot do. --- Eleanor Roosevelt
