Quotes I Read

Since January 2006 I have been putting quotes that I have read in the organiser part of my mobile phone. Here are a selected few. Have a read through them and see if there are any that have any meaning for you.

"When you are arguing with a fool, make sure he/she isn't doing the same thing."

"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." - W.Churchill

"In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life : It Goes On".

"You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind."

"The best way to develop self esteem (in kids) is to teach them how to think."

"The only way we can measure the significance of our own lives is by the value we put on others."

"People use the word Guru only because the word charlatan is too long." - P.Drucker

"The devil rides the back of those who are certain."

"The strongest predicator of life expectancy in a man - greater than diet, lifestyle or income - is whether he likes his job."

"A premium customer is willing to spend money in order to save time, while a discount customer is willing to spend time in order to save money."

"You can't force things to happen. You just have to figure out what's going to happen and be standing there when it does."

"Women avoid anger or confrontation like men avoid an emotion."

"You can only be as happy as your saddest child."

I cannot recall the authors of each one, but most of them are somewhere in the books - 'Manhood' by Steve Biddulph, 'The Female Brain' by Louannn Brizendine and 'The Long Tail' by Chris Anderson
