Dear All,

Hungry for some wisdom here! Any Thoughts for the day?

At the moment, I can truly identify with this one "Humanity is divided into three groups: Those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move." (have no idea about the source)

More thoughts for the day would be really appreciated!

Seadeta

This one certainly did not com from a shrink... Feb 15, 2006

"Having your dreams fulfilled can be far more therapeutic than having them analyzed."

So true...

P.S. I also have no idea of who's the source.

P.S. 2. Another one of my favourites: "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with mood swings."

And my favorite quote ever: Feb 15, 2006

You cannot dodge responsibility for how and why your life is the way it is. If you don't like your job, you are accountable. If you are overweight, you are accountable. If you are not happy, you are accountable.

Dr. Phil McGraw

Three I love (unknown authors) Feb 16, 2006

The Web brings people together because no matter what kind of a
twisted sexual mutant you happen to be, you've got millions of pals out there. Type in 'Find people that have sex with goats that are on fire' and the computer will say, 'Specify type of goat.'

Since light travels faster than sound, isn't that why some people appear bright until you hear them speak?

Life is a sexually transmitted mortal disease.
