If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Thank you for the complement, Amina :)
In today's world, where people are only concerned about wealth and profit, we need the wisdom of great men or women to keep our sanity.
We should be inspired by their philosophy in order to be more effective in coping with today's challenges.
Economic crises, natural disasters and man-made catastrophes are a sign that mankind is on the wrong track.

This one from "Silent Warrior" in this thread, is my favorite:
Maybe it works... but I doubt this approach is kosher.

This may have been posted before . . . anyway . .
Written on the walls of her hovel in Calcutta :

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Yea, your sarcasm rings true, might as well throw it away, as we seem to make the same mistakes over and over anyway, never taking heed of the words of those that came before us . .

I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel
BUT
It was only some Bastard with a torch,
Bringing me more work


Or

He is not Drunk.Who from the floor
Can Raise his glass
and ask for more



or

Old Hippies Never Die

only their flowers wilt
The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
