    I have always like this one:
    "When the Missionaries arrived, the Africans had the Land and the Missionaries had the Bible. They taught us how to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, they had the land and we had the Bible."

    "Take her easy"...."I'll take her any way I can get her"
    Not sure if those are the exact words, but it was in Insomnia, between Ralph and....Lachesis or Clotho. That's my favorite quote...so far.

    'The brave may not live forever, but the cautious don't live at all'

    I'm sure it's from somewhere originally but a friend wrote it in a good luck card.

    A few in the spirit of the Olympics:

    This (world) will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.~~ Theo. Roosevelt (paraphrased)

    We are citizens of the world and the tragedy of our times is that we don't know it. ~~ Woodrow Wilson

    Ho'omoe Wai Kahi Ke Kao'o: Let's all travel together like water flowing in one direction. ~~ Hawaiian Proverb

    "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding" - Albert Einstein
    The treasure of a life is a measure of love and respect/The way you live, the gifts that you give/In the fullness of time/It's the only return that you expect

    I don't see an author to this quote, but I love it!

    Reminds me of "Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all." But who should be correctly attributed for this quote??? I'm getting lots of folks in my search including St. Augustine and Alfred Lord Tennyson
