"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." --Thomas

"This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a
means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us."

Silver on the work that led to the unique adhesives for 3-M "Post-It"
Notepads.

"So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, we even
built it with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us?
Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come
work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and
they said, 'We don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.'"
--Apple Computer Inc. founder Steve Jobs on attempts to get Atari and HP
interested in his and Steve Wozniak's personal computer.

--1921 New York Times editorial about Robert Goddard's revolutionary
rocket work.

Life in Lubbock, Texas, taught me two things: One is that God loves you and you're going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love. ~Butch Hancock

I'm not saying it's safe for humans. I'm not saying it's unsafe for humans. All I'm saying is that it makes hermaphrodites of frogs. ~Dr. Tyrone Hayes

No. ~President Jimmy Carter's daughter Amy, when asked if she had any message for the children of America

My own belief is that there is hardly anyone whose sexual life, if it were broadcast, would not fill the world at large with surprise and horror. ~W. Somerset Maugham

We begin life with the world presenting itself to us as it is. Someone - our parents, teachers, analysts - hypnotizes us to "see" the world and construe it in the "right" way. These others label the world, attach names and give voices to the beings and events in it, so that thereafter, we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us. The task is to break the hypnotic spell, so that we become undeaf, unblind and multilingual, thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices and write all its possible meanings in the new book of our existence. Be careful in your choice of hypnotists. ~Sidney Jourard

Saw this quote on the site of one of my favorite bands, Lacuna Coil..

"Everyone on earth is useful. It's a sin to consider someone, or something, useless."

I thought it was beautiful and with all the flaming, insults, and bad feelings always floating around, i thought it fitting as well.

Helen Keller has to be my all time favorite..this one tops..

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

And these are hers also..Makes you wonder..Did Helen mud?

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.

The best way out is always through.

Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

"G'Quan wrote, 'There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul... that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities; it is against chaos, and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope. The death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender.'

The future is all around us... waiting, in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us; we know only that it is always born... in pain."

"I know you. You're a protector. You'll never admit it, but you're a protector. Most of the protectors I know got that way because the world was so cruel to them and they couldn't do anything about it. So, they work it out by trying to make things easier for everybody else... but they deny it, because saying it means admitting they need to touch other people and because they've been disappointed so many times they've learned to live without. They've learned to give... but they've never learned how to receive. How to ask for compassion, or something as simple as a hug."

Excellent quotes Alaindril, I love Babylon 5, has some of the coolest bits.

I loved the one from DeLynn when they came to the rescue of Sheridan and the station against the Earthforces loyal to Clark.

"In the history of Earth Midbari relations, only one person has ever beaten us in a battle, he is behind me, you are in front of me. If you wish to live, leave now."

At which point, they did a 180, and got the hell out of Dodge.

In a recent interview, General Norman Schwartzkof was asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harboured and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America. His Answer:

"I believe that forgiving them is God's function. Our job is simply to arrange the metting"

"You can lead a whore to culture, but you can't make her think"
