I have always wanted to make a journal of quotes but have never been disciplined enough to start one. I always end up forgetting the quotes or not knowing who said what. Now that I started this blog and started carrying around my nerdy 3 x 5 notepad and pen in my pocket I feel like I have the means to start collecting quotes. Here is my first set of quotes that I have collected from numerous sources. Everywhere from word of mouth, to the inside a restaurant bathroom, and even off a beer bottle. There is something special about quotes and their ability to present a solid message that transcends all situations and all people. They serve a words of wisdom that give us insight into the way we should live our lives. I would love to have people add great quotes in the comments sections to build up our repertoire of quality quotations. Enjoy.
"Good people drink good beer." - Hunter S. Thompson
"I'd rather be the commander of an outhouse than the number two at the White House." - An Air Force leader whose name and status I couldn't remember. (Quote is likely off as well but the leadership message remains intact)
"Ambition is the last refuge of failure." - Oscar Wilde
"Procrastination is the thief of time." - Edward Young
"Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well." - Philip Dormer Stanhop
"Things don't change, we change." - Henry David Thoreau
