I know this is pure vanity, but here it is.
I'm joining a new company and they have a "Get to know your fellow employee" kind of thing. They ask your name, marital status, favorite book (The Bible), movie (Road Warrior), music (Jazz), web site (Free Republic), etc..
My dilemma is I need a favorite quote. Some quotes are good for certain situations and some are not. As I respect and admire my Freeper family, I ask for your help.
P.S. When asked; "what you want your co-workers to know about you", I penned a very pro-Second Amendment statement.
We would gladly feast on those who oppress us.
We forge the chains that bind us. - Charles Dickens
Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
"Do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less."
- Robert E. Lee
"Take your job seriously but don't take yourself seriously."
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely...his sly whispers heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears to be no traitor; he speaks in the accents familar to his victims...and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night...to infect the body politic so that it can no longer resist." - Marcus Tullius Cicero ( 106--43 B.C. )
"You have to be trusted
By the people that you lie to...
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in"
"Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."--Gandalf the Grey
"Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup."--Smaug the Dragon
Ain't it the truth....But not for work.
Totally voluntary Kim. But I want to weed out the Libs right away, while still being professional.
