Hey Ray,

Here's 2 from Malcolm that I've always liked and show the man
in the leader.

"Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery."
Malcolm X, Malcolm X Speaks, 1965

"Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it."

Joe. Here are a few quotes that may or may not have some relevance to some of the discussions taking place on this message board.


The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people are so full of doubts.
-- Bertrand Russell

Stay away from the little people who try to belittle your ambitions, small people will always do that; big people can help you become great.
-- Mark Twain

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
-- Samuel Johnson

In Senior Softball you can’t win without having a GREAT catcher behind the plate.

Always on time, Bash
and who could argue the importance of the catcher
to winning in slow pitch softball.
Certainly not me or Yogi.
Catching can beoome even in slow pitch
a very dynamic influence on the defense.
Mango for Courtesy Auto
does a lot more than most catchers
in readying, steadying, supporting and leading
his team.
They just won another National Title
if I'm not mistaken.
See you in Phoenix.

Roy Hobbs: I guess some mistakes you never stop paying for.

What I say to my sons:
Iris Gaines: You know, I believe we have two lives.
Roy Hobbs: How... what do you mean?
Iris Gaines: The life we learn with and the life we live with after that.

Don't remember all the details, but in an early 70's(?) movie, Bill Cosby and a friend walking down an alley spy a wino asleep by the garbage cans. Bill's reply: "Look friend, someone has thrown away a perfectly good white man!""

On a more serious note: The French philosopher Pascal declared: natural or worldly knowledge must be understood to be loved. Spiritual knowledge must be loved in order to be understood. God Bless

This is an outstanding thread and I appreciate all who has contributed to it.
Here are a couple more Abraham Lincoln quotes:

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

I'm liking this post. Can't believe no one has quoted the man Rodney Dangerfield yet. Here are some Rodney gems.

They say 'love thy neighbor as thy self' , what am I supposed to do jerk him off too ?

I came from a real tough neighborhood. In the library the sign says "shut the f..k up"!

This morning when I put on my underwear I could hear the fruit-of-the-loom guys laughing at me.

I met the surgeon general - he offered me a cigarette.

Okay Gehall44!

0 A gal phoned me the other day and said... Come on over, there's nobody home. I went over. Nobody was home.

0 I’ve been blessed with having good looking kids. Thank goodness my wife cheated on me.

0 I remember the time I was kidnapped as a kid and they sent a piece of my finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof.

0 I though I'd be good and tell my wife the truth. So I told her I was seeing a psychiatrist. Then she told me the truth: that she was seeing a psychiatrist, a plumbers, and five bartenders.

0 Back to my father. He’s was so ashamed of me that he carried around the picture of the kid that came with the wallet to show his friends.

0 When I was a kid my parents moved a lot, but I always found them.

0 My wife likes sex in the back seat of her car and she asked me if I wouldn' mind driving.

Bashbro - Nice, I never get tired of Rodney quotes. i always have to stop and watch caddyShack when flipping channels also.
How about Dave Barry?

“You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.”

“What Women Want: To be loved, to be listened to, to be desired, to be respected, to be needed, to be trusted, and sometimes, just to be held. What Men Want: Tickets for the world series.”

This one's for you Joey -

More Rodney:

"My daughter, she's no prize. She was voted most likely to conceive."

"My wife is no cook, the flies took up a collection to fix the hole in the screen door."

"The first time I had sex I was so scared, I was all alone."

Q. Hey Rodney, what do you do for a living?
