Since I've got nothing better to do after waking up at 2 f'ing 30 this morning, I thought I'd put out a request for those quotes you keep stashed and use in comment, diaries and sigs.
I have a text file I keep handy with a couple dozen and occasionally will change my sig with one of them. Some are by famous people, some from fictional characters and I even saved a few comments that I found here on the Great Orange Satan.
I started that text file with quotes from Generals that were decidedly anti-war back in the run up to the Iraq invasion and the follow up debacle. These were words of wisdom from men who had "seen the elephant" and resonated with me. It has grown to include various random quotes that I have picked up since then and I just liked.
Anywho, enough rambling. A few of my recent quotes below the Fleur-de-Kos.
"Just because your voice reaches halfway around the world doesn't mean you are wiser than when it reached only to the end of the bar."
~ Edward R. Murrow
"I have followed the philosophy that the primary duty of a representative of a free people in a parliamentary body is to exercise an honest, independent judgement in accordance with the facts as he finds them."
Senator Wayne Morse
We're shocked by a naked nipple, but not by naked aggression.
"Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I don’t pretend to understand."
~ Atticus Finch
