Day 5 - Favorite quotes.
Now, that one is simple.
"All that I really know, is that I know nothing." - Socrates
This has been a favorite of mine for many years. There is no person, situation, or idea on this planet that I cannot learn something from. I hope, hope, hope to never act as if I do know every thing.
"All that is gold does not glitter. All those who wander are not lost." - JRR Tolkien, Fellowship of the Ring
I have the last seven words tattooed on my foot, as a constant, always-viewable, reminder that even if I don't see the path at my feet or know every twist and turn, I am not lost. I am a wanderer, and that might be the best experience of all.
And a new one:
"Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry." - Mark Twain
Yes, it's a variant of the "Carpe Diem" mantra, but Mark Twain says it more eloquently (and cleverly). Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'.
