    Your Favorite Quotes

     Ran across this and thought I'd share.  Dunno who it's by:

     

    Whoever understands and lives out these concepts:

    People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered - Love them anyway.

    If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives - Do good anyway.

    If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies - Succeed anyway.

    The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow - Do good anyway.

    Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable - Be honest and frank anyway.

    The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds - Think big anyway.

    People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs - Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

    What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight - Build anyway.

    People really need help but may attack you if you do help them - Help people anyway.

    Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth - Give your best anyways.

    I see your true colors and that's why I love you...

    "All the freaky people make the beauty of the world... Stay Human"

    "An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral. And the advance of man's knowledge is a greater miracle than all the sticks turned to snakes or the parting of the waters." - Inherit the Wind

    "Hands I have taken, face I have kiss'd, mortal I have ever touch'd, it shall be you." - Walt Whitman

    "When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
    And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
    And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
    Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

     

    How many loved your moments of glad grace,
    And loved your beauty with love false or true,
    But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
    And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

    And bending down beside the glowing bars,
    Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
    And paced upon the mountains overhead
    And hid his face amid a crowd of stars."
    -WB Yeats, "When You are Old"

     

    @FakeeEtiquette: It is appropriate to beg [famous musicians] to come to your city,
    as their final decisions are usually based on online groveling.
