    Default Favourite sayings or quotes

    Hi,

    Care to share some favourite sayings

    I will start with a few...........

    If it were not for time, everything would happen at once.

    Call a place paradise and kiss it goodbye ..... Joe Jackson

    I started out with nothing and have most of it left.

    'Tis best to keep the mouth closed and be thought a fool, than open it and leave no doubt.


    Cheers :

    A Time for Everything

    There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under heaven:

    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,

    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,

    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,

    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,

    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

    At the risk of being labelled (yet again!, by my act of quoting others) as a person who is insecure and with no opinion of my own, here are some from Picasso:

    "Every act of creation is first an act of destruction"

    "I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them"

    "Ah, good taste! What a dreadful thing! Taste is the enemy of creativeness"

    This are some of my favs which I have saved permanently on my PDA and would read them as often as I can to keep me moving in the right direction...well, as best as I possibly can be lah.....


    Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.--Christian D. Larsen (Creed for Optimists)


    If you are not getting better, you are getting left behind.


    Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully.--Zig Ziglar


    Well done is better than well said.


    When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves


    Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it, you will land among the stars.

    "if you love someone for a reason, you will one day find a reason to stop loving him/her."

    So

    "I don't know why i love you and i will never find a reason to answer that question, simply because i dun want to"

    would probably be a more romantic thing to say.

    Got 2:

    What we do in life echoes in eternity.
    Maximus

    Ultimately, we're all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men.
    Proximo

    No prize for guessing the source.

    Obviously the originator can't see the black holes.
