Re: Quotes

Here is one of my favorites. I've long since forgotten who said it, or where I read it.

Re: Quotes

Here's my all-time favorite:

"The reason a warrior woman bonds with a man as rarely as a crow is white is because she has no need to gain anything from that bonding. Such a bond is truly for love, and only for love, and THAT is as rare as a white crow."

Roberta Gellis

Re: Quotes

Your life is what you make of it (I think I'll make sum tea instead)

If life gives you lemons than you should make lemonaide(or pass them to some else that knows how)

If you look back on the life you have lead and have regrets of things you did or things that you should have done, then where do you live in the past or in the present.

Re: Quotes

I recently read a quote I almost did not believe, had it not been on a site devoted to this person. When greeting his debate challenger he said:
