    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

    Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.

    And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.

    And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee. – Jules Winfield

    I get Brian Tracey’s quote of the day by email….todays is:

    “Character – the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life – is the source from which self respect springs.” – Joan Didion

    I particularly like this one. So many in our society (not including forum members) fob responsibility for their life off onto somebody else.

    Another old standard from ex Blue Flames pilot, Dennis Waitley:

    “Attitude determines Altitude”

    Cheers

    Howdy,

    My all-time fave quote would have to be:-

    All great opportunities are at first brilliantly disguised as insolvable problems

    Some others faves:-

    What is normal?
    Normal is average,
    Average is boring,
    Boredom drives me crazy,
    Insanity is here.

    You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

    What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail???

    Don’t fight forces – use them!

    Thanks Bill

    I think I’m guilty of this one

    Keep them coming.

    From George W Bush:

    “The problem with the French is they have no entrepreneurs”

    (and the origin of that last word?….George W doesn’t seem too bright at times)

    I read one a while ago:

    if you can think it and beleive it you can do it!

    I remodeled it to give it a bit of authority as I was going to put it on my business card… my version is below :)

    What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

    As my dad told me …

    “Many a mine has been ruined by drilling a hole”

    And another one …

    “The main reason you end up with a long term portfolio is that you have made a short term mistake”

    Finaly ….

    “A share is only worth what someone will pay you for it in the quantity that they want at the exact moment you wish to sell it”

    And as a postscript …

    “A sale is not a sale untill you have (a) woken with a hangover after (b) cashing the comission cheque which was (c) drawn only because the customer has paid for the goods!”
