  • Some quotes and stuff.

    Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down. - Jimmy Durante

    There are some experiences in life which should not be demanded twice from any man; and one of them is listening to the Brahms Requiem. - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

    Give me chastity and continence; - but not yet. - Saint Augustine (354-430)

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. - Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

    Two guys are moving about in a Wal-Mart when their carts collide. One says to the other, "Excuse me, but I'm looking for my wife."

    "What a coincidence, so am I, and I'm getting a little desperate."

    "Well, maybe we can help each other. What does your wife look like?"

    "She's tall, with dark hair, long legs, firm boobs, and a tight butt. What's your wife look like?"

    "Never mind, let's look for yours."


    The definition of "Brave" is:

    A man coming home late, smelling of perfume and beer, with lipstick on his collar, and slapping his wife on the butt and saying : “You're next!"

    Or is that the definition of “Suicidal?”

          Burt, I love reading little tidbits like these.
          Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
          So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
          Good luck and stay well.
