Whatever you can do or dream
Boldness has genius
Magic and Power in it
Begin it now!
Take not from the Past its ashes but its fire
an ode to my work collegues
We, the willing,
led by the Unknowing
are doing the
for the Ungrateful.
We have done so much
for so long with so little
We are now qualified
to do anything...
Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes to the bone.
No good deed ever goes unpunished.
A short cut it the longest distance between two points.
In order to get a loan, you first must prove you don't need one.
It is morally wrong to allow suckers to keep their money.
If everything seems to be going well, you obviously don't know
what the hell is going on.
Never argue with a fool, people might not know the difference.
See the happy moron, He doesn't give a damn, I wish I were
a moron, My God! perhaps I am!
Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds
of men that the defences of peace must be constructed.

The best defence against the atom bomb is not to be there
when it goes off!

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies!
All colours will agree in the dark!

A life lived in fear is a life half lived!
from the movie Strictly Ballroom.
I sound my barbaric yawp over the rooftops of the world!
Everything has its beauty but not everyone see it!
There is one difference between me and a madman. I am not mad!
I think, therefore I am!
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...
I want to achieve it by not dying
Anyone who goes to see a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined.
The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is
difficult to class them seperately!
My soul, do not search for immortal life, but exhaust
the boundaries of possibility.
Pindar<518 - 438 BC)
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself!
Franklin D Roosevelt. <
There is no cure for birth or death save to enjoy the interval!
To be or not to be that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fotune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and, by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a conummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause
Shakespeare - Hamlet.
Cowards die many times before their deaths,
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Shakespeare - Julius Caesar.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou are more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Shakespeare - Sonnets
Ignorance is when you don't know something and someone finds out you don't know!
If you think nobody if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments!
People with purpose create their own lives!
Before you argue with a fool, make sure he is not similarly occupied!
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible!
Beware of half-truths - you may have the wrong half!
We are born with our eyes closed and our mouths open, and we spend our whole lives trying to reverse that mistake of nature!
Getting up early is simply mind over mattress!
if you take too long deciding what you want to do with your life, you'll find your done with it!
A wise man changes his mind, a fool never will!
Confidence, like art, never coms from having all the answers: it comes from being open to all the questions!
Earl Gary Stevens!
The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously!
Hubert H Humprey!
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing!
George Bernard Shaw!
Making a mistake is falling down, failure is not geting up again!
If you should lose your temper, don't look for it!
Funeral Poem by WH AUDEN.
(as read by Mathew in Four Weddings and a Funeral)
Stop all the clocks, cut of the telephone
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone
Silence all the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin let the morners come
Let the aeroplanes circle over head
Scribbling in the sky the message he is dead
Put crepe bows around the necks of the public doves
Let traffic policeman wear black cotton gloves
He was my north, my south, my east, my west
My working week and my sunday rest
My room, my midnight, my talk, my song
I thought that love would last forever I was wrong
The stars are not wanted now, put out everyone
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood
'Cause nothing there will ever come to any good
