Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

The superior sailor is one who demonstrates his excellent judgement rather than his consumate skill.

Experience is what you get about 5 seconds after you needed it.

Indeed.
Experience is a hard teacher, because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.

"Always remember, Never say always and never."

Reminds me of what Homer Simpson said:

"I never apologize. Sorry, but that's just the way I am.
