So what are your favorite quotes, proverbs, mottos, etc.? 

 

One of mine is:

 

"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher." (Socrates)

"People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do."

It is Isaac Asimov who said that, but I know the feeling very well.  :D They annoy us because they keep talking while we want them to shut up for us to talk. 

 

Another one:

 

"If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it." (Herodotus)

oh well, Here is my favorite quote of all times:


The man who contemplates the Universe with eyes wide open is the one with the greatest piety. Not in a religious sense but in the sense of an intimate harmony with all things.

Adolf Hitler

some say that the greatest motivation for success is the fear of failure

strangely enough, they all so say that the reason for failure IS the fear of failure

 

ultimately the solution to the story is fuckitall-300x135.png

and go for it with all you got

 

moral of the story.... when an opportunity arises, grab it like a hyena grabs a carcass and dont let go

and never be intimidated by holier than though almighty top of the chain lions that dare to get in your way

You spend time to earn money and call it a job.
You spend money to earn time end call it recreation.

Or you could also say that time is more valuable than money. You can always work more (or invest more) and make more money, but you cannot get more time.
