    Default What is your favorite Quote or Saying?

    There are various quotes or sayings that I have heard or read during the course of my life, that have captured my attention. Some of these have even influenced my life in some way. One of my favorites is: "What is Honor? Honor is what no man can give you, and what no man can take away. Honor is a man's gift to himself." What is your favorite Quote or Saying?
    The PUPIL who does not surpass his Master, fails his Master.

    It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.

    Look after the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.

    Look after the cents and the dollars will take care of themselves

    One of my VERY Favorites...

    From Shakespeare's Henry V, 1598:


    KING HENRY V:
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remember'd;
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

    Now THAT is a peptalk!
