Men made money.
But the Devil made women,

"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon... (interrupted by applause) we choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

-- given in a brief speech to the White House staff on the day of his resignation. ...and one of the best quotes by any politician in modern time. Interesting, really, coming from him... given the stories of his "witch hunts", keeping lists of subversives, and paranoid behavior in general. But, this was not a prepared statement, but rather, an ad-lib speech given moments before he boarded Marine-1 for the last time and departed the White House grounds. Anyway, interesting you should post this -- I was thinking of posting the same quote, as I was reading through this thread; I was quite surprised to see it had already been posted. :wink:


..not a "great man", per se, but one of my favorite quotes:

Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.
-- Joe Theismann, former football quarterback.

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
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Nothing compares to "The dark side of the moon"
