    Inspiring / Funny / Poignant Quotes

    I must admit i love a good quote , here are 3 of my favourites .
    Obviously three completely different characters

    Dalai Lama : If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.

    George Best : I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

    Winston Churchill : If you're going through hell, keep going.

    I like this one

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    its often attributed to Mark Twain , but apparently it's not one of his ... still good however

    I have one of my own.... "Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down." It works for me.

    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    Frank Zappa had more than a few great ones.. Here are just two

    Anybody who wants religion is welcome to it, as far as I'm concerned--I support your right to enjoy it. However, I would appreciate it if you exhibited more respect for the rights of those people who do not wish to share your dogma, rapture, or necrodestination.

    Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
