We once had a favorite quotations thread on this forum that was popular; I'd like to revive it. My own "favorites" change frequently. Here's one that strikes me as timely and meaningful today:

"The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life." - Theodore Roosevelt

How about one from each of you?

I've come to the conclusion that Einstein was the most brilliant human being in every aspect of the idea of brilliance. I love this one.

"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."

I also love a sentiment by a woman by the name of Plum. She says something like There is a place I may go where all my thoughts are important, my sorrows are comforted . . . your arms is my favorite place to be. The quote is in a notebook that I don't have with me. It's beautiful. That could just stem from my romantic nature but I love it....

"In peace, Love tunes the shepard's reed;
In war, he mounts the warrior's steed;
In halls, in gay attire is seen;
In hamlets, dances on the green.
Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,
And men below, and saints above,
For love is heaven, and heaven is love."
~ Sir Walter Scott, from "The Lay of the Last Minstrel"

hmmmm that's a tough one. I have a couple of quotes or sometimes prayer that I keep with me. Besides my signature my favorite for today would have to be:

"The profound essence of peace is not the absence of crisis but the calm state of mind, founded by the strength in the faith, amidst the troubling storm."

I'll try to think of one tom.

A recent addition to my collection and a favorite:

"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair."
-- Douglas Adams

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The conciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.~Oscar Wilde

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy.
- Bette Davis
