Quotes - that's all

Image

Another thread to perhaps make folding fun.

Another thread to perhaps make folding a learning experience.

Another thread that may go down in flames as a bad idea.

Like the Joke thread, all we want here is Quotes.

Avoid commenting on other people's entries.

Comment all you like on your own entry (in the post).

Google quotes and you have a world of possibilities.

Hunt down that special one that does it for you - Bigtime.

Or, you may have your favorite quote already.

Funny quotes

Make you think quotes

Quotes to live by

Try to avoid:

What the hell did that mean quotes.

Depressing quotes

I'm sure by now you have the idea.

I'll include the first one Here

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

I thought of an:

ant
grasshopper
human body
monkeys
distributed processing (folding@home)

It's a miracle to me that this project ever works and so many people work so hard to make it work.

I definitely go with everything is a miracle.

Enter one and you will get emails on all the rest.

I love quotes. They encapsulate huge knowledge and concepts in a few words. But here is a good one:

It is better to remain silent and thought a fool
Than to speak up and remove all doubt.

Abraham Lincoln


BTW-Forbes magazine has a great book with nothing but quotes. Highly recommended.

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.

George Burns
US actor & comedian (1896 - 1996)

Played God before Morgan Freeman did.

That's 100 years and he smoked cigars the whole time.
Maybe not as a baby.

In reading all the quotes above, I had no idea that guy Anonymous was quoted so often.
