Favorite Quotes
Do you guys have any good, funny, life changing/ inspiring quotes that you remember easily? I mean, like "Don't eat yellow snow", "Don't kick a cow pie on a warm day", or "Drink upstream from the herd". One of my personal favorites is "I just hate stupid people"-- Bill Engvall.

I'm not sure where I heard this one, but another top 5 one for me is "I'm a very responsible guy, whenever anything goes wrong, I'm responsible." I use that one on average of twice per day. I need some newer, better quotes.

I don't Know whose quote this is, but I have found it to apply to more than a few people I know!! :evil:

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Will Rodgers

The pursuit of perfection is frustrating and a waste of time because nothing is ever perfect.
The pursuit of excellence is commendable and worth while.
Therefore strive for excellence, not perfection
Alan Kulwicki

Without deviation from the norm, progress is impossible.

No one is truly worthless, they can always serve as a bad example.

Murphy has most of my favorites...

"A shortcut is the longest distance between two points".
"The chances of a piece of buttered toast landing butter side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet".

My favorite is simply: "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, then how are you going to have time to do it again?"

Words to live by...
