I just stumbled onto this quote today:

"Whatever you give a woman, she's going to multiply.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So - if you give her any crap, you'll receive a ton of s***."

My favorite quote is from Muhatma Gandhi: "You can judge the progress of a society by how well they treat their animals."

I agree with all the gushing about Vonegut. Slaughterhouse 5 is my favorite book. Not from Slaughterhouse 5 (but I think actually used in two of his books): "Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college."

Finally, one of my favorites is from Emerson: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."

Einstein also has a ton of great statements, but I can't find my folder where I keep my favorite quotations.

Not really a quote, but lyrics which have stuck with me for years.

There are those people who tell you not to take chances
They are all missing what life is about
You only live once, so take hold of the chance
Don't end up like others, the same song and dance

I tried my best. I suppose I should have used two hands.

Please use both hands. No, don't close your eyes.

"Projection is the pretense of a subjective ideal"

One that I came up with myself; I love quotes.
