Let's try to keep this thread on topic.  Just post your favorite quotes.  Let's keep the non-contributing banter to a minimum.

 

I keep a file to accumulate inspiring quotes.  I ran across this one today and thought it was worthy of sharing.  The author of the article was quoting a taxi driver he met leaving a conference.  It would be nice to credit him as this is a particularly good one:

 

Learn to face your problems with calmness and dignity. Never compromise your principles. Take the cards you have been dealt and play them as wisely as you can.

Mike Rowe’s  S.W.E.A.T Pledge,

 

  1. I believe that I have won the greatest lottery of all time. I am alive. I walk the Earth. I live in America. Above all things, I am grateful.

    2. I believe that I am entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Nothing more. I also understand that “happiness” and the “pursuit of happiness” are not the same thing.

    3. I believe there is no such thing as a “bad job.” I believe that all jobs are opportunities, and it’s up to me to make the best of them.

    4. I do not “follow my passion.” I bring it with me. I believe that any job can be done with passion and enthusiasm.

    5. I deplore debt, and do all I can to avoid it. I would rather live in a tent and eat beans than borrow money to pay for a lifestyle I can’t afford.

    6. I believe that my safety is my responsibility. I understand that being in “compliance” does not necessarily mean I’m out of danger.

    7. I believe the best way to distinguish myself at work is to show up early, stay late, and cheerfully volunteer for every crappy task there is.

    8. I believe the most annoying sounds in the world are whining and complaining. I will never make them. If I am unhappy in my work, I will either find a new job, or find a way to be happy.

    9. I believe that my education is my responsibility, and absolutely critical to my success. I am resolved to learn as much as I can from whatever source is available to me. I will never stop learning, and understand that library cards are free.

    10. I believe that I am a product of my choices – not my circumstances. I will never blame anyone for my shortcomings or the challenges I face. And I will never accept the credit for something I didn’t do.

    11. I understand the world is not fair, and I’m OK with that. I do not resent the success of others.

    12. I believe that all people are created equal. I also believe that all people make choices. Some choose to be lazy. Some choose to sleep in. I choose to work my butt off.

    On my honor, I hereby affirm the above statements to be an accurate summation of my personal worldview. I promise to live by them.

That is true.  I was thinking it was referring more along the lines of working 70-80 hours a week (there are a few people here who do that).   For a season, this is ok....but making it a lifestyle choice for those with children is a mistake (in my opinion).

 

I was told once:   If working the extra 20-30 hours a week is infinite (in other words, there is no end in sight), then do the math.

Infinity - 80 = Infinity - 40.  In other words, taking an 80 hour chunk out of infinity is the same thing as taking a 40 hour chunk out of infinity.

I would say this is the key. There is a big difference between a half hour early and late and putting in 14 hour days. there is also a big difference with that extra hour and being the last to work and the first to leave.--that gets noticed.

  4. Speak well and don't curse

A couple of weeks ago I replied to a request for help with what turned out to be the correct answer. As part of my answer I made what I thought was a mildly funny remark.

The OP marked my reply as correct then replied saying that my solution seemed to work well but the remark was off topic and shouldn't have been included.

I thought, "Wow, that guy must live a miserable life!"

Regarding marriage:

One of the counselors around here (specifically at my church) says the following:

"If you want to fix WE....then fix ME."

In other words, if you want to improve your marriage, the only option available to you is to improve yourself.  You can't change your spouse.  Only your spouse can change your spouse.

yep now I work cause I want to and not because I have to.  Makes a big difference.  Last job ran out of work and I was able to take my time to find a new one.  No rush to take the first thing that came along.

Everything you do is based on the choices you make.  It’s not your job, the economy, the weather, an argument or your age that is to blame.  You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make.  Period.

Hmmm. "Everything"? So if you get hit by a drunk driver and become paralyzed from the neck down, you chose that outcome? The point of the quote is to emphasize personal responsibility in decisions, but doesn't take into account the fact that in Life we have to react to our environment and the random 'stuff' that happens. A human life is shaped by countless factors, only a tiny fraction of which are accounted for in a human's conscious decision process. The quote, while in a strict, literal interpretation is correct, it implies that individual humans are responsible for all the bad (or good) things that happen to them in Life, solely because of the decisions they have made.
