Well, I did a search, and didn't find it, although this is one LONG thread! So, my all-time favorite quote:

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."
Mohandas Gandhi

The word 'POLITICS' is derived from 'poly' (which means 'many') and 'ticks' (which are blood-sucking creatures).

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I believe... that if you have a low enough SAT score you should be able to park in a handicapped stall.

I believe... that a marriage won't last if you the first time you saw your wife in lingerie, you had to pay a cover charge.

I believe... it's not possible to study for a rectal exam.

I was told that the best way to handle stressful things is to treat them like a dog would: if you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.
