Re: Favourtie Quotes

those words touched me so much

"God has called them all home. For those of us who remain, let us find the strength to carry on, and make our country worthy of their memory.
May God bless and keep those we've lost in His heavenly place. May He grace those we still have with His holy comfort. And may He bless and watch over this community, and the United States of America"

President Obama
16.12.2012

Hug it out as long as it takes, people

"People were created to be loved
things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used."

"יברכך ה' וישמרך,יאר ה' פניו אליך ויחונך,ישא ה' פניו אליך וישם לך שלום"

I agree, but things are so bad in the U.S. I'm surprised some group or the other isn't upset that the President of the U.S. spoke of God!

Wow, that's just great!
So Rainer Schuettler is allowed to make a comeback on the WTA tour?!

He was a German ATP player that has retired now so if the WTA believes that everyone should be treated equally and they did mention gender in that a man should be able to play in the WTA! Personally I think it would improve the WTA greatly

Re: Favourtie Quotes

Courage is not knowing when to take a mans life, but knowing when to spare one

It was in the Hobbit

Do you have enemies? Good, that means you have stood up for something in your life
and
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm

I'm a Churchill fan, but I have no idea when or why he said this "A joke is a very serious thing."

it's usually said that the things one doesn't dare to say seriously are said in a joking manner.
