The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want at the moment.

Everybody gets what's coming to them.

Nothing is completely good or completely bad.

"The difference between the powerful and responsible people of the 60's and those now
is those now are more artfully and elegantly concealed." Ralph Nader

When asked what he thought of Nurse Ratchett who ran everything on the hospital ward,
MacMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
said he didn't like her because
"She likes a rigged deck."

Malcolm X replied when asked what he would or wouldn't do
to help blacks achieve equality in America said,
"By any means necessary."

and lastly for now
"When all is said and done
more is said than done." (Somebody cool)

My favorite is from Bruce Lee:

"Stop comparing yourself at (your age) to the man you were at twenty or thirty. You must learn to live in the present and accept yourself for what you are now. What you lack in flexibility and agility you must make up with knowledge and constant practice."

Individual posts have recently been deleted for principally one of two reasons, both related to those posts being NOT relevant to "Softball Issues". SSUSA STAFF Nov 9

Unfortunately, it seems this is like a pick and choose who or which get the axe, like some rules not equally used, but another problem. I had one removed from this thread.

"Not relevant to Softball Issues" was a less than perfect choice of words. The actual criteria is "Not being in the best interests of the Sr. Softball Community" ... Accordingly, threads like this one, the Triva Series and the Happy Thanksgiving thread are fine ... Disparaging comments, ridicule, etc., will be removed without notice ... Thanks!

On the "Wall", one poem I chose from my 6 classmates obits, awritten by an unknown author.
Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the Gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the mornings hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

Hey Norm, look what you started. A quote from the finest person I've ever met.
"It's not where you've been, but where you're going that counts"--Cal Farley. He started Cal Farley's Boy's Ranch in the Texas Pan Handle about 40 miles NW of Amarillo in 1939. I grew up @ Boys Ranch and sadly witnessed Cal's passing during Chapel services in 1967. He had a lot of other quotes but this one sticks with me.

Side note to Norm- have you found a team for 2009? Never crossed paths this year with you.

I bargained with life for a penny -
And life would pay no more -
However I begged at evening -
When I counted my scanty store.

For life is a just employer -
He gives you what you ask -
But once you have set the wages -
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire -
Only to learn, dismayed -
That any wage I had asked of Life -
Life would have willingly paid.

The one I used today (December 8, 2008) was by Dwight Eisenhower....."The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender." As Jimmy Valvano said...never give up; never give up!

Why Socialism? By Albert Einstein (the real one)

Oh yeah, if mankind doesn't survive
I guess we won't be able to play softball, either.

New manner of thinking, says Einstein.
I wonder how that might relate to Senior Softball
and our current difficulties and challenges.

Some things, Kenny, are important to emphasize and repeat
particularly if the are fundamental to one's appreciation of life

Folks need to know not all of us have to or want to lay down

O My psychiatrist told me I was crazy so I said I wanted a second opinion, she quickly came back with...and you're ugly too.

O My wife met me at the bathroom door the other morning in a sexy negligee; unfortunately, she was just getting home.

O My wife and I were very happy for over 20 years… then we met.

O My wife is so ugly that I still carry around the picture of the women who came with the wallet.

O I was so ugly as a baby that my mother used to feed me with a slingshot.

O My wife said she wanted sex in the backseat of our car and she wanted me to drive.

O My girlfriend called me the other day and said... come on over, the coast is clear, there's nobody home; so I went over and sure enough nobody was home.

O I haven't spoken to my wife in years because I was afraid to interrupt her.

O My wife and I had words again last evening; unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to use mine.

O I looked up my family tree the other day and found out I was the sap in the family.

"Unreason and anti-intellectualism abominate thought. Thinking implies disagreement; and disagreement implies nonconformity; and nonconformity implies heresy; and heresy implies disloyalty – so,
obviously, thinking must be stopped.
But shouting is not a substitute for thinking, and reason is not the subversion, but the salvation of freedom."

This Quote go's back to the 60's which many Marines had engraved into their Zippo Lighter in VietNam."If I Die Burry me face down so the hole world can kiss my Ass" Even though I too had this engraved on my Zippo,my beliefs & attitude has done a 360 degree turn over the past 42 years.

The funniest line I ever heard in this game came from one of our guys. We had just lost a game when our left fielder dropped an easy fly ball with 2 out in the bottom of the seventh and a 5 run lead, and the other team scored 6 and beat us. GH looked at our downcast left fielder and said "You know it wasn't the dropped fly that beat us, it was the six runs they scored after it!"
