Ok...post....quotes!


Anything that was said by someone else, you can put it...here!

Just make sure it is either funny, or wise, inspiring, etc....not just nonsense...

Ok, to start us off:


Thao Huynh wrote:"If a pessimistic sees the glass as half empty, what am I for thinking it was never full?"



Mike Hutchison wrote:It doesn't take a genius to contradict everything I say. It takes a genius to contradict everything I say, and be right.




Dave Barry wrote:Karate is a form of martial arts in which people who have had years and years of training can, using only their hands and feet, make some of the worst movies in the history of the world.



A. Whitney Brown wrote:I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants.


Recent Chinese Proverb wrote:Confucius say too much.



Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
wrote:
"Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much... the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely the dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons."
--Zankou II

The thin line between genius and insanity is less of a border than a union.

"Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish."
--Pope John Paul II


Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Okay, you two suck.

Albert Einstein wrote:If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research.


And a classic Einstein:
Albert Einstein wrote:Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe.


Samuel Clemens wrote:I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
[...] the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, should not be considered as subversive of the theory.

Mark twain was a talented writer, but a nutcase, IMO.

From an article on the growth of federal regulations in the Oct. 24th issue of National Review
wrote:
The Lord's Prayer is 66 words, the Gettysburg Address is 286 words, there are 1,322 words in the Declaration of Independence, but government regulations on the sale of cabbage total 26,911 words.


Jay Leno wrote:The New England Journal of Medicine reports that 9 out of 10 doctors agree that 1 out of 10 doctors is an idiot.

Nature abhors a hero. For one thing, he violates the law of conservation of energy. For another, how can it be the survival of the fittest when the fittest keeps putting himself in situations where he is most likely to be creamed?
