An alternative quote for those I sometimes meet might be:

I only got into Linux because someone mentioned free beer.

;-p

...And one of my favourites:


Before you speak, ask yourself, is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve upon the silence?
- Sai Baba

MY thought of the day (or better of the evening) is a German saying:

Nicht ärgern, nur wundern.
(can be interpreted as: don't be angry, be astonished instead) ;)

Ordinarily adults would seek their own forums to have a juvenile clique type format.

If people would spend half as much time 'working on' themselves as they spend 'working over' others, they might not have to do the latter... ;)

Don't look at me... I'm the bringer of truth and honesty, the cheerleaders are down the hall and to the right... ;)

Just stumbled over this, and want to share it with you:

“Either we all on this planet shall learn to live together in peace with one another, respecting the right of the other to search and to have other truths than our own, - or we shall all perish together. We still have that power in our hands – either to stop the arms race – or the human race. I personally feel that the human race is more important than the wealth accumulated by five percent of the privileged Americans from the arms race.”
(Dean Reed, June 1, 1986 reply to attend his Colorado High School reunion)

My thought of the day today is an advise I've read in a book the other day:

Never project your own feelings onto others.

They will teach you what to think... Then they will grant you the freedom to do so on your own... But any deviation, and the beatings will commence... ;)

"Unless we tear ourselves away from our pretty toys and distractions just long enough to remove our rose-coloured specs, freedom will be obsolete except as a slogan above the gate of the Ministry of Truth."... ;)
