What Guys Said 1

  • Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

    ~ Chief Tecumseh

It's high time that I accept all the great things about me.”
    ― C. JoyBell C.

  • My brother @dogbert444 and I have one special quotation that inspires us to try so many things.

    It is "Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for a might-have-been".

    It's from "We Didn't Mean to go to Sea", a childrens' book by Arthur Ransome. It's one of a set of 12.

    • That's a wonderful quote!
      Really reminds me of "I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done", by Lucille Ball.
