Never mind. I have a new favorite I just ran across this morning…

You only live once… but if you do it right, once is enough.

Reminds me of Mr. Carlins take on Life....


Life in reverse By George Carlin

"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends.
I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time.
What do you get at the end of it?
A death.
What's that, a bonus?
I think the life cycle is all backwards.
You should die first; get it out of the way.
Then you live in an old age home.
You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch,
you go to work.
You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.
You drink alcohol, you party,
you get ready for high school.
You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb,
You spend your last nine months floating...
Then you finish off as an orgasm."

Bob

My favorite saying has always been: Don't mail a porcupine in the same box as a carburetor.

Yep, my grandad told my father that, my father told me, and I've passed it on to my kids. And these words have served all of us well, many a year now.

"If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down." ~ Ray Bradbury

Bradbury died this morning (06/06/2012) in LA at the age of 91
