    Give me your maxims, your credos your mottos.

    Here’s mine:

    In twenty years, you will be more disappointed with the things you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So cast off your bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the Tradewinds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Mark Twain

    dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum ("I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am")

    Most have heard it as "I think therefore I am" but the doubt portion is the most important, doubt is your friend.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Especially if that story is in a song.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Nine Ball is rotation pool. The balls are pocketed in numbered order. The only ball that means anything, that wins it, is the 9. Now, the player can shoot eight trick shots in a row, blow the nine and lose. On the other hand, the player can get the 9 in on the break, if the balls spread right, and win. Which is to say that luck plays a part in 9-Ball. But for some players... luck itself is an art.

    Not sure if Einstein said that indeed, but I like it.

    I think it went something like:

    “There are two things that are infinite: The universe and human stupidity. And I am not sure about the former.”

    Panem et circences. Juvenal

    For a long time I used to go to bed early... Proust

    It is eternity now. I am in the midst of it. It is about me in the sunshine; I am in it, as the butterfly in the light-laden air. Nothing has to come; it is now. Now is eternity; now is the immortal life. Jefferies

    I always think of my books as music when I write them. Woolf

    You might well be correct. I have just looked up the original quote which is significantly different. However, I do believe that mine was what he originally intended to say.:rolleyes: But this is what I found ~

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
    ― Albert Einstein

    Which reminds me of another Einstein quote that I should have recalled before I posted my first! :thumb:

    Never memorize something that you can look up.”
    ― Albert Einstein

    "When you want genuine music -- music that will come right home to you like a bad quarter, suffuse your system like strychnine whisky, go right through you like Brandreth's pills, ramify your whole constitution like the measles, and break out on your hide like the pin-feather pimples on a picked goose, -- when you want all this, just smash your piano, and invoke the glory-beaming banjo!"
