Last night I heard a quote & it must have hit at the exact right time because I think it's great & I can't get it off my mind:

"REALITY IS ONLY THE LIE SOCIETY HAS AGREED UPON"
-David Milch

Does anyone have any favorite quotes?

One last totally unrelated thing: This morning after tracking I took Arkane on our walk in the foothills on the fire roads. My eyes are not what they use to be & as we were walking I noticed a big stick in the road that wasn't there on our way up. When we were about 5 feet from it I noticed it was moving. In my little pea brain I was like "Stick moving - weird - stick moving - how??" Then it hit me - RATTLESNAKE - back the f%$k up QUICK!!! At the time it looked like the snake was about 4-5 feet long, but now that I've had time to think, I'm SURE it was at least 20ft long & 2 feet around.

All work is a series of interrelated processes. (not sure which quality guru said this but it has saved me many, many, times.)

Life is tough, but it's tougher if you're stupid. (John Wayne)

That the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant...for compelling him...To justify that, the conduct from which it is desired to deter him must be calculated to produce evil to some one else. The only part of the conduct of any one, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns himself, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign. (JS Mill)

We had to go Hellen Keller on the bit. (Woody Taylor)

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. (Edison)

Not all drugs are good. Some … are great. (Bill Hicks)

I smoke. If this bothers anyone, I recommend you look around the world in which we live, and … I don't know, shut your f***ing mouth? (Hicks)

Your denial is beneath you, and thanks to the use of hallucinogenic drugs, I see through you. (Hicks)

Then comes the kicker: Say the alphabet … backwards. "Well, shoot, you got me. I'm not drunk, but I'm obviously too stupid to be driving, God damn it."
(Hicks again, regarding field sobriety tests to catch drunk drivers)

Go back to bed, America. Your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control again. Here. Here's American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up. Go back to bed, America. Here is American Gladiators. Here is 56 channels of it! Watch these pituitary retards bang their f***ing skulls together and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom. Here you go, America! You are free to do what we tell you! You are free to do what we tell you! (Hicks)

Bill Hicks totally rocks. I have a book by him & love it.
My generation's Lenny Bruce. Not many people know about him, which is a shame, because he was a very funny guy. Very angry guy. Sad ending to that life, died of pancreatic cancer at 32.

"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter. You will meet them doing various things with resolve, but their interest rarely holds because after the other thing ordinary life is as flat as the taste of wine when the taste buds have been burned off your tongue."

Ernest Hemingway, 'On the Blue Water,' Esquire Magazine, April 1936

"Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted."

George Bernard Shaw

"Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off. Good leadership involves responsibility to the welfare of the group, which means that some people will get angry at your actions and decisions. It's inevitable, if not honorable...''

Gen. Colin Powell (Ret) ''A Leadership Primer''

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination are omnipotent."
-Calvin Coolidge-

"I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it"

I like this one too, and since I am a firefighter, EMT and reserve officer, it fits anyone who gets in my vehicle (personal and emergency)

"Get in, sit down, shut up and HANG ON!!" (you can buckle up if you like):smile:
