I thought I might start a forum for great quotes - inspirational or funny or ones that just make you pause and think. Give credit when due/known.

Enjoy and join in.


Quality is like buying oats
If you want nice, clean oats,
you must pay a fair price;
however - if you're satisfied with oats
that have already been through the horse;
such oats can be had a little cheaper.

Robert Kennedy

Each Time A Man Stands For An Ideal,
Or Acts To Improve The Lot Of Others,
Or Strikes Out Against Injustices,
He Sends Forth A Tiny Ripple Of Hope.

And Crossing Each Other
From A Million Different Centers Of Energy And Daring,
Those Ripples Build A Current That Can Sweep Down
The Mightiest Walls Of Oppression And Resistance.

***** Robert F. Kennedy *****

Lyndon Johnson at Gettysburg Civil War Battlefield

In This Hour, It Is Not Our Respective Races Which Are At Stake -
It Is Our Nation.
Let Those Who Care For Their Country Come Forward,
North And South,
White And Negro,
To Lead The Way Through This Moment Of Challenge And Decision.

The Negro Says, 'now.'
Others Say, 'never.'
The Voice Of Responsible Americans -
The Voice Of Those Who Died Here
And Of Great Men Who Spoke Here –

Their Voices Say, 'together.' There Is No Other Way.


***** Lyndon B. Johnson, At Gettysburg, Pa. ****


Personal note: I think this holds true for all generations. The conflicts may be different than those of the 60s, but the core message remains the same.

When philosophy paints it's grey on grey then has a shape of life grown old. By philosophy's grey on grey it cannot be rejuvenated but only understood. The Owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of dusk.

Here is one I need to take seriously

IF YOU WISH TO LIVE LONG, YOU MUST BE WILLING TO GROW OLD

George Lawton


It is easy to slip into the fantasy that our bodies will remain the same as the years go by. My knees creak every time I get up!

My Dad always said growing old was better than the alternative.
