Favorite sayings/quotes/song lyrics what have ya

Over the past couple of weeks my english teacher told us to gather up 10 of our favorite quotes and they would be posted up around the high school. This really got me thinking, 'what quotes can I chose that will inspire others?' These are the 10 I chose...

"Never was anything great achieved without danger.” – Niccolo Machiavelli

“It has come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them, they went out and happened to things.” – Leonardo Da Vinci

“It is better to die on your feet than live a life on your knees.” – Emiliano Zapata

“It doesn’t matter how tall your grandfather was, you have to do your own growing.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Cowards die many times before the death, yet the valiant only die once.” – Julius Caesar

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” – Mark Twain

“For every two minutes of glamour, there are eight hours of hard work.” – Jessica Savitch

“Don’t tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” – Unknown

“Things do come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” – Abraham Lincoln

“It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.” – Rachael Dawes

So I was wondering, what are yall’s favorite sayings? What inspires you?

The poem above leads me to some of my favorite lines from the band For Today: "Hell, fear me; I am the one that will bring you down!"

"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries." - Winston Churchill


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

"If 2 + 2 = 4 every time, what good is it? That's no fun."
-Michael J. Fox

"Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration – that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves... Here's Tom with the weather!"
-Bill Hicks

"I feel like my old self again. Neurotic, paranoid, totally inadequate, completely insecure. It's a pleasure."
-George Costanza

"What we do in life, echoes in eternity."
-Maximus Decimus Meridius

"Money and power do nothing more than to magnify the qualities of a man. Greed and selfishness magnified is a terrible thing and overshadows much. However, when good qualities are magnified, many are those who prosper." ~me

"The difference between a wealthy man and a poor man is the space between his ears and nothing more. Take away everything from both, and the wealthy man will soon be prosperous yet again. The poor man, however, will only survive through the aid of others." ~myself

"I'm not a rock star. Sure I am, to a certain extent because of the situation, but when kids ask me how it feels to be a rock star, I say leave me alone, I'm not a rock star. I'm not in it for the fame, I'm in it because I like to play." ~ Eddie Van Halen

"One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people's minds." ~ Frank Zappa

"Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto." ~ Thomas Jefferson

"If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?" ~ Thomas Jefferson

"He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors." ~ Thomas Jefferson



Forgive, but never forget. No amount of DLC can take back lying to your fan base. Trust is earned, not downloaded.
