Favorite saying or quote....

  • March 5, 2011 3:00 AM PST
    We all have favorite sayings or quotes, so I'm just curious as to what they are. I'll start off, as this one has always stayed with me......

    " Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart."  Unk

    Wow, there are so many. One of mine that comes to mind immediately is attributed to Korczak Ziolkowski, the sculptor who along with Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear started the Crazy Horse Memorial in 1948.

    "Never Forget Your Dreams." and I add to that "But, you have to get off your butt and make them happen."

    Life is not just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW.... WHAT A RIDE !!!
    and
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle

    Both are my favs..

    From my dad: "I like it when the President is from one party, and the congress from the other. It proves that government works best when government does nothing."

    There are three sayings I have always lived by...

    "The only time you're gauranteed to be right is when you say you can't"

    "Success is not having everything you want, it's not having anything you don't want"

    "A setback is just a setup for a comeback"

    I used to tell all the players I coached in Little League baseball and Pop Warner football " that I would rather have a bunch of doctors and lawyers as former players than one professional sports star".

    I tryed to live with these motos:

    It is better to have it and not need it, Then need it and not have it.
    Think of it as every one is trying to get you, Then just try to avoid them.
    If you dont wan't to know the truth then dont ask me.

    And I love that movie ND,

    I'm your Huckelberry. haha
