These quotes are about as fancy and original as a brick wall, but they are the two that I live by:
"Actions speak louder than words"
"Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture, you can change a person’s life. For better or for worse."
Finally, one from the late great Jerry Garcia
"There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night.
And if you go, no one may follow.
That path is for your steps alone." [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]December 4, 2001 at 9:14 am #66655

I am a human being. Nothing human can be alien to me. — Publius Terentius Afer
A servant is a master in disguise. — "Kama Sutra"
An angry person neither forgives nor forgets. A naive person forgives and forgets. A wise person forgives but does not forget. — unknownDecember 4, 2001 at 8:56 pm #66659
A couple of cool Richard Feynman quotes:
"I think I’ve got the right idea, to do crazy things — what other people would consider crazy things. There’s so much fun to be had."
"I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything, and many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we’re here, and what the question might mean. I might think about it a little bit, but if I can’t figure it out, then I go on to something else. But I don’t have to know an answer… I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly. It doesn’t frighten me."
Oh, I think I’ll just pick "There’s so much fun to be had" as my quote to live by.December 4, 2001 at 9:05 pm #66660
Hey, in the line of the first couple ‘Hitchhiker’ quotes, here’s my favorite…
"There’s a guy who knows were his towel is." [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
What about the rest of you, do you know were your respective towels are? [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

In the middle of the night everybody is silent, snoring, or thinking quiet thoughts one way or the other, and the only thing I hear is the Chinese brothers going quietly in the dark ‘Hungk-ya mung-yo too mah to.’ I think of all the rice in their father’s shop. I think of all the ink in my father’s fingernails. I think of all the absurdity of going on when there’s no place to go. Then I think: ‘Absurdity? of course there’s someplace to go! Go mind your own business.’
Jack Kerouac from Vanity of Duluoz
