Quotes We Should Have Lived By (re-post)


When I called my mom last week, I asked her what she was doing.  She said she was watching the Cubs.  I admire her patience; Cubs fans have been “waiting and watching” since 1908 to no avail.

“Chicago Cubs’ fans are 90 percent scar tissue”–George Will

I  read that our new Consumer Protection Agency caught Capitol One, one of the nations’ biggest banks, in a huge scam and it will cost Capitol One over 210 million including $150 million returned to innocent consumer victims.

“Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies”—Thomas Jefferson

Last month I met a person I had long admired and I was tongue-tied for words to open the conversation.

“I asked him the most important question that I think you could ask — if he had ever seen ‘Caddyshack.'” — Jesse Ventura on meeting with the Dalai Lama

Looking in the mirror this morning I thought of an anonymous quote.

“Inside every elderly person is a youngster wondering, “What happened?”

I accompanied a family friend to the doctor last Friday morning.  He is 50 years old with no medical insurance and truly can’t afford any.  The doctor wrote a prescription for high blood pressure and diabetes 2.  He never bothered to ask about the patient’s lifestyle or diet (changes in both would CURE both problems).  I drove the friend to Wal-Mart because the two prescriptions would be the cheapest there.  They were $228.00.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”—Thomas Jefferson

I read in interesting article about a company in Ohio that builds robotic systems to automate complete operations.

“The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog.  The man will be there to feed the dog.  The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment”—Warren G. Bennis

Finally, I’m so lucky that my wonderful wife believed wholeheartedly in this quote;

“You may be right.

I may be crazy.

But it just may be a lunatic you’re looking for”

Billy Joel
