I'm some what of a history nut so bear with me  rolleyes
One I like from philosopher George Santayana :
"Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it."

Another one I like is :
Hail Caesar! We who are about to die salute you!

The history behind the qoute :

In the Roman civil war, Julius Caesar knew he had to march on Rome, which no legion was permitted to do. Marcus Lucanus left us a chronicle of what happened.

"How swiftly Caesar had surmounted the mighty alps and in his mind conceived immense upheavals, coming war. When he reached the water of the little Rubicon, clearly to the leader through the murky night appeared a mighty image of his country in distress, grief in her face, her white hair streaming from her tower-crowned head, with tresses torn and shoulders bare, she stood before him and sighing said, "Where further do you march? Where do you take my standards warriors? If lawfully you come, if as citizens, this far only is allowed." Then trembling struck the leader's limbs, his hair grew stiff and weakness checked his progress, holding his feet at the rivers edge. At last he speaks, "Oh Thunderer, surveying Rome's walls from the Tarpeian Rock. Oh Phrygian house gods of Iulus, Clan and Mystery of Quirinus who was carried off to heaven, Oh Jupiter of Latium seated in lofty Alda and Hearths of Vesta, Oh Rome, equal to the highest deity, favor my plans! Not with impious weapons do I pursue you. Here am I, Caesar, conqueror of land and sea, your own soldier, everywhere, now too, if I am permitted. The man who makes me your enemy, it is he who be the guilty one." Then he broke the barriers of war and through the swollen river swiftly took his standards. And Caesar crossed the flood and reached the opposite bank. From Hesperia's Forbidden Fields he took his stand and said, "Here I abandoned peace and desecrated law; fortune it is you I follow. Farewell to treaties. From now on war is our judge!" Hail Caesar! We who are about to die salute you!



Very dramatic and very interesting.

This guy up in north Louisiana, in Tallulah, told me of a tornado that cut a house trailer half in two. He said "That tornado cut that there house trailer half in two."

"But oh!  the blessing is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearless on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely.  Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away"

from A Life for a Life, a book written by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik in 1866.

There are three kinds of people, live wires, short circuits and blown fuses.

And on the geek side.

There are 10 types of people...those who know binary and those who do not.

Everyone knows there are only two kinds of people.  The kind who divide people into two groups and the kind who don't.

Just remembered this one, probably my favorite of all.

"Never act when you are angry, we are at our worst when we are angry. Compose yourself, cool off, and gather your wits, then procede."

Oh, and one of the rules for a great marriage, top of the list is "Never go to bed angry."
