Motivational Quotes of the Day

Selected from Laura Moncur's Motivational Quotations - August 21, 2013

Thomas Paine (1737 - 1809)  
My Father taught me to weigh my words carefully, and speak up only when I had something insightful to add to the proceedings, or something really funny to say. He also taught me that if I couldn’t be that kind of guy in real life, that I could earn a healthy living pretending to be that guy in the movies – particularly when paired up with a long haired stoner.
