I'll list a few favourites to get things started..

Find a Job you love, and you will never have to work a day I'm your life~conficus 551-479bc

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind~Ghandi

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

Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money~Cree proverb

And my favourite and one I try and live my life by is this...

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away~Maya Angelou.

If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little. ~ George Carlin

It has to be:

Is it not strange that the descendants of those Pilgrim Fathers who crossed the Atlantic to preserve their own freedom have always proved the most intolerant of the spiritual liberty of others?

I've always thought that this one was apropos in terms of love and the relationship between men and women.

Once inside a woman's heart
A man must keep his head
Heaven opens up the door
Where angels fear to tread.

Bob Seger "Shame on the Moon"
