I like my flattery plausible.
Don't belittle yourself. If it
truly needs doing, let someone
else do it. There'll be no
shortage of volunteers.
and I always liked this one, instead of the the "revenge is a dish..." quote...
not to mention the fact that it
gets your soul all sticky.

Oh, and on the quote, "Behind every great man, is a great woman..."
Of course! For what other reason would a man have to accomplish greatness?

One day A woman I was having a conversation with brought up the concept of "Warrior Spirits". She explained it was the pinnacle of what humans can reach spiritually, and it's what every ascended master has as a base.
-- M Warrior Spirit? Mmmm. Oh, I have one of those...
-- H You can't! You wouldn't be here if you did, they aren't of this plain anymore, and they aren't something you can pick to be...
-- M Well, where do they go then? They gotta go somewhere?
And besides, time is just a form of increasing repetition. Like, a bunch of cups that all get bigger by the drops or rain filling them over a storm. It's not _exactly_ just evolution... And I see no way for the the energies of the universe and the battles of the ones who are the holders of those energies to go on forever without reincarnation, and a good rescrambling of our backgrounds and our histories and positions with no inherent memory other than instincts, and love.
Eh, maybe love is just an instinct. Maybe that's how we are 'picked'. (And this was to the woman that was only interested in flirting if we were using the high speech to do it with. =o)

"Come down and eat chicken with me beautiful", it whispered in a cracked and dying voice, "It's so dark!" - the thing under the stairs of Stu's Hospital in 'The Stand'
I always pictured him saying it like, "it's sooo dark", kinda matching the spoken length of the word 'so' to the word 'dark'. The quote itself is pure Genius!
More Jules Winnfield:
"There's this passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."I been sayin' that **** for years. And if you heard it, that meant your ass. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was some cold-blooded **** to say to a mother****er before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some **** this mornin' made me think twice. See, now I'm thinkin', maybe it means you're the evil man, and I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or, it could mean you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. I'd like that. But that **** ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd"
ou will need to know the difference between Friday and a fried egg. It's quite a simple difference, but an important one. Friday comes at the end of the week, whereas a fried egg comes out of a chicken. Like most things, of course, it isn't quite that simple. The fried egg isn't properly a fried egg until it's been put in a frying pan and fried. This is something you wouldn't do to a Friday, of course, though you might do it on a Friday. You can also fry eggs on a Thursday, if you like, or on a cooker. It's all rather complicated, but it makes a kind of sense if you think about it for a while.

:cool2: For Bookworm!!!!!: Glad you brought your Grandpa to us, Book!!! Grandpa's are the best arn't they! My Grandad: " That woman(my Gran) gets down on her hands and knees to me! And says,' Come out from underneath that refridgerator, you!!!!!" then Gran would say: "BILL!!!!" It's not as bad as it sounds, it was all in fun! And you see I did not lick my 'Recreational Profanity' from a stone, I came by it honestly! I sure miss my Grandad too.

Grandpa's are great, mine taught me how to grow tomatoes, peppers and cabbage. He also taught me how to cowboy roll your own cigarettes which made me popular in high school LOL. I learned how to cook from him, he was the cook on a battle ship during WWII. I make the best cornbread in a cast iron skillet and pinto beans the whole family always ask for a family get together. He taught me many things that I carry with me to this day and I miss him.
