Little bits from different people - mostly that I know - that make life; well, life.
"Life is a counterpoint; a symbiosis of opposites." - Glinka.
It's in the milk.
'Whoever said "sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me" has never been hit in the head with a solid Bible. Or the new English Oxford dictionary, for that matter.' - Scatts.
That's so gallop.
"Do things that create value. Not consume time."
"Everyone is a universe."
Remember the dodos.
Optimist: Glass half full. Pessimist: Glass half empty. Minimalist Bond fan: Glass. Phillip glass. Guilty: Glass? What glass? Engineer: Glass twice as big as it should be. Matrix fan: There is no glass. Portal fan: The glass is a lie. Sound Technician: Glass is producing a frequency of 220Hz. Musician: That glass is in the key of F#. TF2 Fan: Ve make good glass! Me: Why all this fuss about a glass?
"I'm not catching Werner!" - Mozart.
When all is said and done, if you can call Jesus Christ your Lord, then you have nothing to fear.
"It's not a good idea to make important announcements on April Fool's day." - Jessie.
Why do people still consistently call them PIN numbers, ATM machines, and OC classes? Or, I suppose a better question, why do people name things like this so it's so easy to slip into that habit?
'Albus Dumbledore' is an anagram of 'Bemuddled labours'. Or, at least, it would be if he had an extra 'd' in his name. Anyone for Dalbus Dumbledore?
A couple more interesting anagrams: 'Clint Eastwood' is 'Old West Action'; and 'To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune' is 'In one of the Bard's best thought of tragedies, our insistent hero Hamlet queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten.'
As an aside, though 'pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis' is often considered to be the longest (English) word, it was made simply to be the longest word. So many actually discount it.
"Chaaaange places!" - Micky.
True perspective can kill a man.
Sometimes we need to think before we act. Sometimes we need to act on impulse. Sometimes this, sometimes that. Well, is there no one thing that you can apply to any situation? Yes - flexibility.
If you're going to argue against something, make sure that you understand exactly what their point is first. Otherwise, it can leave you looking quite stupid.
So many people say "If only I had this," or "I wish I had that." Sometimes, it's right in front of you. You just need to open your eyes and look.
Harry Potter has the best metaphors/analogies.
Isn't it the best feeling when things seem to just...fall into place?
"Lepers are people too." - Elyse.
I swear God has a sense of humour. After all, he put race of beings with no claws, sharp teeth, spines, disguise mechanisms, great speed, size, tough skin, outer shell/exoskeleton, or wings in charge of many different creatures who did. Now that's a bet I'd like to see the odds for.
One thing I've always thought amusing was the Apple logo, and comparing that to the original apple, so to speak. Coincidence?
Quality versus quantity, the great debate - unfortunately, as with anything, give me context or can no give you answers.
"Start yesterday." - Scatts.
"It's amazing grace, not ordinary grace."
Sometimes, the opposite of love is not hate, but apathy.
