    Notable Quotes

    This thread is for quoting something you read or heard that bears repeating so that everyone may benefit. We have our signatures, but we can't put everything notable in our signatures. So, post an edifying, humorous, uplifting or though provoking quote. The thread is open to all!


    My first contribution:

    "The difference between death and taxes...is that death does not get worse every time Congress meets." - Will Rogers

    "What has the Church gained if it is popular, but there is no conviction, no repentance, no power?" - A.W. Tozer

    "... there are two parties in Washington, the stupid party and the evil party, who occasionally get together and do something both stupid and evil, and this is called bipartisanship." - Everett Dirksen

    I don't think LJ intends this as a debate thread.

    I have used this on many sympathy cards I have made.

    Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
    and death is only a horizon;
    and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.”

    Do you have a QUOTE to contribute?

    "Better to Remain Silent and Be Thought a Fool than to Speak and Remove All Doubt" (often attributed to Mark Twain or Abe Lincoln)

    Probably inspired by Proverbs 17:28.

    Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue. (NIV)

    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. (KJV)
