Not sure, an Aussie politician said it in Parliament, but i suspect he was quoting someone else.

If you didn't want my advice do what you want instead of asking - DL

The difference between those is like virtue among whores, it doesn't really matter - DL

There are three things in life you need to work towards: family, work, and personal desires. You have time for two.

Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

I'll let you figure out where it came from

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing....only I will remain.

Experience is like a lantern, that you carry on your back: it throws light over what you have left behind’ (Confucius).





or this version:
Experience is like taillights on a boat which illuminate where we have been
when we should be focusing on where we should be going. -- JFK
