What is your favorite quote or saying? Mine is: Imagination is more important than knowledge by Albert Einstein.

A couple other of my favorites are:

I used to be disgusted, now I'm just amused

Is it weird in here, or what?

The two I try to live by are:

"It doesn't mean that much to me to mean that much to you"...Neil Young.

I try to ask myself everyday, "what have I done today to make my life better" sometimes I substitute the words "make this world a better place".


Take a wild guess which one of those I am better at living by.

My grandfather is responsible for putting these in my head at a young age,

"I wouldn't hit a dog in the ass with that thing"
"I wouldn't pay that guy to see Christ on a bicycle"
"That guy don't know nothin', he's just a paper asshole"

Of course as alittle kid I thought the funniest thing I could imagine was,

a. Seeing Jesus riding a bike lugging the cross around.
b. Some guy with an ass made out of paper.

These have stuck with me for over 40 years. :lol:
