"Be like a rose that perfumes the hands of those who crush it" - The first ever proverb that I fell for.

"Wise is a man who adapts to the ways of the world, Fool is the man who expects the world to adapt to his ideals, but then, every change that is to happen in this world solely rests on that fools shoulders"

"Wise is a man who learns from his mistakes a fool is a man who doesn't learn from others mistakes"

“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.”

~ Jack Handy

My favorites:

"Live Free or Die" - NewHampshire slogan

"Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing" --Warren Buffett

"But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." - Benjamin Franklin

"The things we know best are the things we haven't been taught." - Marquis de Vauvenargues

"The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity." - Harlan Ellison

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful." - Albert Schweitzer

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." - Arthur Schopenhauer

"Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason."

1) Pursue your goals even in the face of difficulties, and convert adversities into opportunities.

2) We cannot change our Rulers, but we can change the way they Rule Us.

3) The only way to solve a problem is to 'FACE IT'.

4) Success is not measured by wealth, but respect.

5) I Live....and Let other Die for me!!

Marriage at its best is a very difficult proposition, it doesn't help to start of with problems - Bertrand Russell
