No, this trick won't work...How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? - Einstein

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? :))


Well Tolkien is a full of legendary quotes and you found pretty good one  ;-()
how's about Dimmu Borgir's -''Peace means reloading your guns''  :whistle:

I've also always liked what Ruskin said: "The most beautiful things in the world are usually the most useless; peacocks and lillies for example"

LOL! But how can they be so useless when they are so beautiful to look at? Beats me. How about beautiful women? Are they useless too? I think not.  :rofl_2:

I agree. I like that quote because it's always been contradictory to how I think in so many ways. Women, flowers, whatever, are all beautiful to me and so I always wondered what his life was like. The guy must have had the personality of Spock :rofl_2: those simple things in life that are beautiful are what make me happy.

Regarding Tolkien, how about this from Frodo in FOTR: "I know less than half of you half as well as I should like. And I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." :rofl_2: I seriously considered using that as my senior quote but decided to go with an Andy quote about Cheetos. :innocent:
