Quotation Day!

The World is crazy and sometimes I just feel like chilling out and forgetting all the crap that modern life spews up.

So today, I'm having a break from the political comments and posting a few quotes that I picked up at BigCite:


Never stop learning; knowledge doubles every fourteen months.
-- Unknown

An excess of courage, in the wrong circumstances, in the wrong place, and at the wrong time, can have far worse consequences than cowardice.
-- Takashi Matsuoka

History is rarely made by reasonable men.
-- Terry Goodkind

History is written by the victorious, the liars, the strongest, the most determined. Truth is found most often in the silence, in the quiet places.
-- Kate Mosse

The best way to make money is to start your own religion.
-- Ron Hubbard

You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named Bush, Dick, and Colon. Need I say more?
-- Chris Rock


Okay - I suppose most of these quotes were political in some way. I can't escape it, can I?

Never mind, here's a nice quote to finish:

It's practically impossible to look at a penguin and feel angry.
-- Joe Moore


I think I'll go find a penguin right now ...
