Some favorites.

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena . . . if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." ~ Teddy Roosevelt

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon him not understanding." Upton Sinclair

"I believe... that security declines as security machinery expands." ~ E.B. White

"Wanting what you have is happiness.
Wanting what is good for you is virtue." the Bagavad Gita

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." - Confucius

"The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat." ~Lily Tomlin

CURMUDGEON'S OBSERVATIONS:

~ Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
~ Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
~ Was learning cursive really necessary?

My Favorite:

~ Don't mess with old farts...
Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill;
BS and brilliance only come with age and experience.

captain58sailin, he say:

There's Mark Twain again.

Folks, let's play be the rules. If you don't know the source, the proper citation is "Unknown" or "Anonymous." Linking the quotes to their sources (or acknowledging you don't know) is half the fun.

As an aside: cursive handwriting may not be a "necessity," but it is a sign of a literate, educated, and genteel culture, and I mourn its waning.

“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly.... who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” T. Roosevelt

The proverb "revenge is a dish best served cold" is often credited to the 18th century novel “Les Liasons Dangereuses”, by Pierre Ambroise Francois Choderios de LaClos; but, as far as I know, doesn’t actually appear in that book.
