    Just for the fun. Please share your favorite quote(s), they do not have to be masonic (let's keep it to max 3 at a time) :) Here are some of mine:

    Everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you. ~ Steve Jobs

    Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish. ~ Steve Jobs

    Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

    I also like "Some people just need a high five - in the face". But then my sense of humor has always been a little off.

    A few of my favorite:

    "Truth, like surgery, may hurt, but it cures." - Han Suyin

    "At every step one has to wrestle for truth; one has to surrender for it almost everything to which the heart, to which our love, our trust in life, cling otherwise. That requires greatness of soul: the service of truth is the hardest service. What does it mean, after all, to have integrity in matters of the spirit? That one is severe against one's heart...that one makes of every Yes and No a matter of conscience." - Friedrich Nietzsche in the Antichrist

    "Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day." - Albert Einstein

    "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." - Carl Sagan

    "There is no wealth like knowledge, no poverty like ignorance." - Ali Ibn Ali-Talib

    And for fun:

    "There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend. Those who have a loaded gun and those who dig. You dig!" - Blondie from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

    I heard two good quotes tonight.

    "The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our deeds that go on replicating(?) themselves throughout all time".

    "Our lives are not our own, from womb to tomb we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness we birth our future".

    "We sleep soundly at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us." -Winston Churchill (Leland's paraphrase..."What, me worry? I've my own squad of Royal Marines just down the hall.")

    The Second Quote.. wow...sums up life.. for sure..
    Researching it a bit more it's a quote from Cloud Atlas, quite a few deep quotes come from that Film actually.
    The Full Quote for this one goes like this.
    • To be is to be perceived. And so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of the other. The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds that go on apportioning themselves throughout all time. Our lives are not our own; from womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness we birth our future.
    As seen on the following web page.

    Ah, the word was apportioning! I ran that scene over and over trying to figure out what that word was. I didn't think to simply google it! <slaps forehead>

    BUMP - Does anyone recognize this quote?

    At some point you have to chose between life and fiction - the two are very close, but they never actually touch.

    you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather.

    Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.-Seneca

    Kindly remember that he whom you call your slave sprang from the same stock, is smiled upon by the same skies, and on equal terms with yourself breathes, lives and dies.- Seneca
