    This is one I've picked up from a co-worker, which explains far too much of what happens around here: "Going too fast to stop for gas."

    "I was written off by many who considered me a jellyfish before I set my own course to chart my personal destiny. And I have proved that life can be a beautiful, magnificent thing to even a jellyfish."


    Charlie Chaplin (Who would have known?)

    I heard this quote for the first time recently on a film bio. of the life of Chaplin. I found many sources for the quote but selected this one for the additional content. Success Soul

    I just ran across this one today, from the folks at FullMoon.info .

    Good advice for lots of people, from Full Moon.



    "Maybe you know this feeling, treading water and to always be confronted with the same situation or problem. Melancholy, self-doubt and other sinister companions begin to spread, the belief in a positive outcome is lost. But is it truly possible to stand still? Is there a not-develop-oneself? Maybe it is only the similarity of situations that lets us overlook that we are different today, compared to yesterday. Mark Twain phrased it beautifully, "History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme". We should not be discouraged to be confident in taking large steps."

    New Scientist (19 Nov 2016) has several interesting quotes in the lead editorial. I can't say they are my favorites - I never heard them before - but each carries a lesson to be ignored at one's own peril.

    "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away." Philip K. Dick

    "We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality." Ayn Rand

    I don't know who said it first but it's the very last thing I want to hear. There are a million ways to spin this phrase. One always knows if it comes from the heart. And nothing - nothing can heal heart wounds faster.


    "I love you"

    I don't know who said it first, but:
