"Quotes"
« on: August 28, 2008, 05:28:53 AM »
Hi fellow members.

This post is not totally off-topic but I think it fits here ok.

When we are feeling down (don't we all at sometime or another!), I personally find that reading great thought provoking quotes, a good method of raising myself up again.

With this in mind I shall share 3 of my favorites today.

Quote 1

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."

Albert Einstein

Quote 2

"That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well."

Abraham Lincoln

Quote 3

"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life."

Muhammad Ali


Anybody ready to share some of their favorites?

Perhaps if there are enough quotes I can compile a pdf for sharing.


Best

Jim

I do believe that's the best description of a bank that I've ever seen!  ;D

That reminds me of another quote with reference to banks.

If you owe your bank $10,000     you are in trouble!

If you owe your bank $1,000,000 then the bank is in trouble!

Banks have got a lot to answer for.
