do you have a favorite quote..
« on: February 14, 2009, 11:14:24 PM »
I think this on pretty much sums up me and my friends and family...

"We're the kinda friends that will kill each other over a hand full of Doritos and in the end we don't say we're sorry we say, ha-ha sucker"

I have a friend who may have coined this phrase, its rather simple, but if you think about it, it can apply to lots of things. It also happens to remind me of M.B.'s catch phrase "Everything works, if you let it"

The phrase is "Its all the same, only different".

Of course I've always got a kick out of "No matter where you go, there you are". Any Buckaroo Banzai fans out there? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086856/

No good deed goes unpunished.

But a close second is:

It is better to remain silent and appear ignorant than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
(I am pretty sure this is Twain or a version on Twain).

another one of my all time favorites

I don't think so, and it's hard to go wrong with Princess Bride quotes either.

Handle stress the way a dog does.  If you can't chew it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

"My Mamma told me there would be days like these" "Que sera sera, whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see, que sera sera"

(had to do a search on this forum for how to spell those three words in Spanish).....have that most beautiful day, Cindi

This is another of my favorites "Hug me till you drug me honey, kiss me till I'm in a coma, hug me honey, snugly bunny, love's as good as soma" from the book, Brave New World.

My wife loves the quote as well.

Human beings can only interact with one another through two methods: reason or force. If at any point, either party chooses force, the other must either submit or respond with force, I prefer reason. But I am ready to respond with force. Submission is not an option.
