I was sure their would be a post for this but it I searched and I guess their isn't.

So what are your favorite quotes.

"A kiss is just a kiss until you find the one you love. A hug is just a hug until you find the one your always thinking of. A dream is just a dream until it comes true. Love is just a word until its proven to you."

I'm a great fan of Will Rogers quotes.
My father as a young man knew him casually and quoted him often to us.

One of the BC's Site Admins has a great quote of W.R.s in his sig.
(Do you know it?)

I flash a little known one also in my sig. (Taken out of context actually.)

Here are many others by this great American humorist.

My alltime favourite is:

"All's well that ends well" (Shakespeare)


I try to live by it all the time, since I can get out of pretty much any unfavourable situation. Plus it is pretty easy to justify any situation, whether negative or positve, to validate the quote.

"Everyday I have my special someone right by my side. No matter what drama comes our way we always make it through, with the Grace of God. "

"Just let me hold you in my arms, and let all our worries disappear. "

"Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Walk beside me like you always do, and we will make it though."

"What affects you affects me, lets hold each other close and never let go. I know deep in your heart you know I will always be by your side, through the good and the bad.There is nothing that can stop us."

“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option”

Dversus solem ne loquitor - Don't speak against the sun (don't waste your time arguing the obvious)

Qui dedit benificium taceat; narret qui accepit - Let him who has done a good deed be silent; let him who has received it tell it. (Seneca)

Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabris, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam. - I have a catapult. Unless you give me all of your money, I will fling an enormous rock at your head. :thumbsup:

Here's some from:
Seneca
(4BC-65AD) Spanish-born Roman Statesman, Philosopher, Moralist
  • A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.
  • Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body.
  • He who has injured thee was either stronger or weaker than thee. If weaker, spare him; if stronger, spare thyself.
  • If you wished to be loved, love.
  • Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.
  • Time heals what reason cannot. - So true.
  • What difference does it make how much you have? What you do not have amounts to much more.
  • Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.

Eat a live toad in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you, for the rest of the day.

:flowers: Have you tried it? :thumbsup:
