Some of my philosophies on life, the universe, and everything.

If I could be one of the four elements, earth, air, water, fire; I'd pick water. Water supports life; is powerful, able to wear cliffs to sand. Is flexible, can flow over, around, or through many things. When struck, adsorbs the force but is unchanged by it, when "burnt" it becomes a vapor, for a time, but returns to water later, bring life to some other place.

Hope for the best, plan for the worst, be happy with anything in between.

Essayons et faisons (let us try and let us do).

Peace and long life.

What goes around, comes around; and turnabout is fair play.

In the end, it will be okay; if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

Say what you mean or mean what you say.

If you say you’re going to do something, do it, or at the very least try your best.

No one can break your word, but you.

The more you know the more you can learn.

The test of a man's intelligence is what he does to relax.

Do better tomorrow what you do today.

If it is to be, it is up to me.

Balance is the keys to life, but not everything must be equal.

There are only two problems in life: You don't know what you want or you know what you want but you don't know how to get it.

Don't ask the questions, if you don't want to hear the answers.

They say it takes all kinds, that's not true, we just have them.

Give someone enough rope to hang themselves, but not enough to also hang you.

Today's choices shape tomorrow's future.

Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off.

-Colin Powell

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

Love all, trust a few, do harm to none.

One's own religion is after all a matter between oneself and one's Maker and no one else.
