The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie -- deliberate, contrived and dishonest -- but the myth -- persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.

Never forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them more than that.

Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives.

How men's best friends live still is a mistery.

Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind,
As man's ingratitude.

Money is the means to an end.
And if money is the means,
and the end justifies the means,
then money justifies our end.

“Remember, always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember, others may hate you. But those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.” Richard M. Nixon

"Just remember, not all great men are good men." Allison Heart
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.

Tired of lying in the sunshine
Staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long
And there is time to kill today

And then the one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun
Pink Floyd - Time

Those are my favorite lyrics of all time. :D

And you run and you run
to catch up with the sun
but it's sinking
and racing around to come up behind you again
the sun is the same in a relative way but you're older
shorter of breath
and one day closer to death
