This Egyptian money really grosses me out

J.Asteros

 

The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China. If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany. If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I've been doing my part. 

Marc Faber

They are slaves who will not choose Hatred, scoffing, and abuse, Rather than in silence shrink from from the truth they needs must think;

They are slaves who dare not be In the right with two or three.

I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being.
Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt
 

 

If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress.
Barack Obama

 

Hypocrites pretend to be righteousness, but inwardly are full of evil intentions towards others. They see their neighbour's faults very clearly, and are quick to criticize and make destructive comments. To such individuals Jesus says: "You hypocrites, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye" (Matthew 7:5). Such people exist and we need to be on our guard against them, and take steps to protect ourselves. In difficult situations, do we keep careful records of the facts to make sure that evidence is always available to defend ourselves against such critics should the need arise?

Biblical

 

When you say that you agree with a thing in principle you mean that you have not the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice. 

Otto von Bismarck

 

Hypocrite: the man who murdered both his parents... pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan.  ~

Abraham Lincoln

 

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
William Shakespeare

 

Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery.
William Shakespeare

 

Knowledge is destroyed by association with the base: With equals, equality is achieved: With the distinguished: distinction

Unknown

 

Let no-one think  lightly of evil, saying in his heart, 'It will not come near me.' Drop by drop a pot becomes full of water, as the the fool becomes full of evil, gathering it little by little.

Buddah

 

He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.
Buddha


It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

If you monitor the hall of others, then expect them to monitor yours

R Medcalf

 

With a thief to the gallows, for though he go as
softly as foot can fall, he thinks himself too soon there.

Shakespeare (As you like it)

 

An ideal may seem unattainable, but when it is distinctly acknowledged as the object of aspiration,

it will be found close at hand.

 

Modesty's the charm that coldest hearts can quickest warm,

which all our best affections gains and gaining, ever still retains.

Unknown

 

Be as careful of the books you read as of the company you keep;

For your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former

as by the latter.

R Hood

 

He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom and will discover the flaw

long after he has forgotten the cause of it.

H W Bucher

 

If you would have a happy family life, remember two things;

In matters of principle, stand like a rock;

in matters of taste swim with the current.
