Nice to see this thread kept going

Day: A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.



Okay, so that was by Ambrose Bierce, US author. And some more gems from the same guy:

Beauty: The power by which a woman charms a lover and terrifies a husband.

Philosophy: A route of many roads leading from nowhere to nothing.

History: An account mostly false, of events mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools.

Vote: The instrument and symbol of a freeman's power to make a fool of himself and a wreck of his country.

Future: That period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured.

Optimist: A proponent of the doctrine that black is white.

Friendship: A ship big enough to carry two in fair weather, but only one in foul.

Year: A period of three hundred and sixty-five disappointments.

Jealous: Unduly concerned about the preservation of that which can be lost only if not worth keeping.

Liar: A lawyer with a roving commission.

Politics: The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.
You are everything I am not.

One of my all-time favorites from Davydenko: (see bold part) :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tennis/columns/story?columnist=ubha_ravi&id=3742835

D. The ATP ended a drawn-out investigation into possible match fixing involving Nikolay Davydenko, grudgingly clearing him of any wrongdoing in retiring from a match in Poland in August 2007. He lost motivation in the summer, but Davydenko's humor remained, evidenced by this snippet upon losing to Novak Djokovic in the Masters Cup final last month. "[Roger] Federer was not in semifinal, and I was," he began. "Federer didn't win [a Masters] tournament this year. I won one. OK, he won the U.S. Open, but who cares about the U.S. Open?"

Life is a mystery. Solve it.

Life is a game. Play it.

Life is a present. Open it.

Life is an adventure. Live it.

Life is death. Accept it.

Death is the beginning of another life. Know it.

I've always liked this from Horace Walpole:

"Life is a comedy to those who think; a tragedy to those who feel"


Hmm, also{if this counts} from Gandalf in LOTR's{really I suppose Tolkien who wrote it}

When Frodo was upset about the RING coming to him and all the drama that was going to come with it, Frodo told Gandalf " I wish this wouldn't have happened in my time"

Gandalf said: "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not their choice. All we can do is decide what to do with the time given to us"

Lol does that count? :))
