    My Brother gave me this quotation several years ago.

    : )

    There is no such thing as failure. You either get the desired outcome, or your learn. No matter what the result, you win. The past does not equal the future. Every time we face a challenge we have a choice to make. Will we get bitter or better? Decide to get better. Face the challenge it's there to make you stronger. You will need that strength further down the road when you'll be facing even bigger challenges. The difference between people is there are those who are interested and those who are committed. The key to success in life is going from being interested to being committed. Once you are committed you will produce results. At the point of commitment, you mentally burn all bridges and you do whatever it takes to make it happen. That's when you become unstoppable.

        It's a dandy, isn't it? Claude is a good guess, I'm actually honored to be mentioned with him. It wasn't Claude or me though. If I was going to list one of my own lines it probably would have been this one:

          I am not at all surprised that Paul Myers came up with that line. I don't have any quotes of my own to share. What I lack in wit, I drown in mannered, clumsily-worded, pompous-village-idiot roundabout verbiage.

      The 19th century wrestler, The Great Gama, was asked one day why he tried to uproot a tree, with his bare hands, for an hour...every day, when he could never uproot the tree.

      He said "Because after a tree, a man is easy".

      I heard this in a movie about the army. A sergeant told his men "No matter how bad the situation, there is always one more thing you can do". It really stuck with me.


      In a movie, one guy says to a lady while fighting fires "That's impossible" and she said "Everything is impossible, until someone does it". I really liked that.

    "Just because you're having a storm, does not mean I have to be the one
    wearing a jacket."

    (My paraphrase does not really do the original justice, I just can't remember
    the exact words. It was something an office manager said in response to
    people bringing their drama to work, or needing her immediate help on
    something they made into a crisis - in their mind anyway. Good idea to
    start a text file for the claudacious, unchurlish stuff I want to remember.)

    How about a couple that make a nice pair.

    I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear. - George Eliot

    Well, it's kind of crude, but it did make me and a friend laugh hysterically when I first heard it.

    There's a movie called The Big Picture, which stars Kevin Bacon as a young director trying to hit the big time in Hollywood. In one scene, a real estate agent is showing him an apartment. When Bacon tells the agent he's a director, the agent says:

    "You know I used to be a director back in the day. I directed Rocky Mountain Serenade. I was the one who made Red Reardon a star. That no good bum. You know what he did to me? He turned around and crapped in my face. Literally."
