"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take" Wayne Gretzky

A couple of good quotes that are taken from the book "Wisdom of Our Fathers" by the late Tim Russert -

"Learn to love people for who they are, and forgive them for who they are not.."

"A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything"

Another of my favorites from John Wayne:

"Sure I wave the American flag. Do you know a better flag to wave? Sure I love my country with all her faults. I'm not ashamed of that, never have been, never will be."

I have several favorites I've run into over the years, kept for a variety of reasons: pithiness, truth, sound advice, humor, rank dishonesty. You can decide where you think each one fits !
**********************
De gustibus non est disputandum.

That Nation that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards, and its fighting by fools. --Thucydides

Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship.
--General Omar Bradley

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. --Winston Churchill

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." — Mark Twain

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
Thomas Edison

"A standing army is like a standing member: an excellent assurance of domestic tranquility, but a dangerous temptation to foreign adventure."
--Elbridge Gerry, Constitutional Convention (1787)

"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the American Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian."
-- Henry Ford.

"Neither the wisest Constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." --Samuel Adams

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." -- George Washington

"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." --James Madison

"Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this Presidency" -- Barack Obama

In this country, four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box. -- unknown

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." --Norman Thomas

The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of people. -- William O. Douglas

As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air — however slight — lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O. Douglas

Action without philosophy is a lethal weapon; philosophy without action is worthless. - Soichiro Honda

If you think you can do a thing, or think you can't do a thing, you're right. --Henry Ford

“A man can never have too much red wine, too many books, or too much ammunition”
-- Rudyard Kipling

Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess. --Edwin Land

Alright, this chick is toast!
-- Peter Venckman

My Grandfather 1893-1981 (Maximilian A. Burke) said something similiar, "don't let your alliagtor mouth overwork your canary ass"

He also said "a Man is only worth as much as his word, and his word is only as good as his willpower"

The Outlaw Josey Wales


Josey Wales TO Ten Bears

written by Philip Kaufman and Sonia Chernus, from the novel by Forrest Carter
Josey: You be Ten Bears?

Ten Bears: I am Ten Bears.

Josey: (spits tobacco) I'm Josey Wales.

Ten Bears: I have heard. You're the Gray Rider. You would not make peace with the Blue Coats. You may go in peace.

Josey: I reckon not. Got nowhere to go
.
Ten Bears: Then you will die.

Josey:
I came here to die with you. Or live with you. Dying ain't so hard for men like you and me, it's living that's hard; when all you ever cared about has been butchered or raped. Governments don't live together, people live together. With governments you don't always get a fair word or a fair fight. Well I've come here to give you either one, or get either one from you. I came here like this so you'll know my word of death is true. And that my word of life is then true. The bear lives here, the wolf, the antelope, the Comanche. And so will we. Now, we'll only hunt what we need to live on, same as the Comanche does. And every spring when the grass turns green and the Comanche moves north, he can rest here in peace, butcher some of our cattle and jerk beef for the journey. The sign of the Comanche, that will be on our lodge. That's my word of life.

Ten Bears: And your word of death?

Josey: It's here in my pistols, there in your rifles. I'm here for either one.

Ten Bears: These things you say we will have, we already have.

Josey: That's true. I ain't promising you nothing extra. I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life. And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another.

Ten Bears: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double-tongues. There is iron in your word of death for all Comanche to see. And so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron, it must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life. (he takes his knife and cuts his hand. Josey does the same and they grasp each others hand.)

So shall it be.


The Outlaw Josey Wales 1976 - Best Scene

"We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown. We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth. We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore. What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly" - John Wesley Powell 1869 at the head of the Grand Canyon
