Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

Aware of this one for about 10 yrs. Good for observing and being introspective:

"The way you do anything is the way you do everything"(unknown)

Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

Don't know if it has appeared already, but this from a recent post in another thread is worth archiving here

In life there are 3 things- time, money and a boat. But, you can only have one of them.

I met my wife on a boat - I was the (very junior) instructor and she was the student. So that worked but, no, she hasn't got me a boat yet.

Reminds me of what I learned as a project manager: Do you want it fast, good, or cheap? Pick one.

Let's apply that to boat maintenance.

Catch your dreams before they slip away,
Dying all the time,
Lose you dreams and you will lose your mind,
Ain't life unkind?

Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
