Quotes of the Day [Dec. 30th, 2006|12:54 am]
Peter Sheil
Good morning, well it is after midnight :) I haven't posted any quotes for a few days, so have an extra selection. I hope you all received everything you deserved in 2006 and that 2007 is a great year for you. For me 2006 has had a number of sad events, but there were a number of amazing ones as well, so thanks to all my friends and for all the things you've done for me.

Peace

Edith Sitwell (1887 - 1964)

Earl Mac Rauch, from "Buckaroo Bansai"

The discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the discovery of a new star.
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755 - 1826), Physiologie du Gout, 1825

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
Henry C. Link

I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently.
