Some quotes are forever new. The folowing are among my favourites:

1. If it is not broken, do not fix it (Unknown). "Our doctor would never really operate unless it was necessary. He was just that way. If he din't need the money, he wouldn't lay a hand on you." Herb Shriner.
2. Decay starts when growth stops (Our Daily Bread)
3. It is not about what your country can give you. It is about what you can give your country (JFK)
4. To be different is not to be defficient(Unknown)
5. To teach is to learn twice (Unknown)
6. The used key is always bright (Benjamin Franklin)
7. Now go, write it before them in a table, and not in a book (Isaih 30: 8)
8. By indirections find directions out (William Shakespear)
9. Have no friends not equal to yourself (Confucius)
10. I never forget a face, but in your case I will make an exception (Julius Henry)
11. To err is human, to forgive divine (Alexandar Pope)
12. There is always room at the top (Daniel Webster)
13. A good symbol is the best arguement, and is a missionary to persuade thousands (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
14. I could never make out what those damned dots meant (Winston Churchill)
15. The historian is a prophet in reverse (Frederick Shlegel)
16."The 'expectation' in a gamble is the value of the prize multiplied by the probability of winning the prize. According to Pascal, the value of eternal happiness is infinite. He reasoned that even if the probability of winning eternal happiness by leading a religious life is very small indeed, nevertheless, since the expectation is infinite (any finite fraction of infiniy is itself infinite)) it will pay anyone leading such a life (E.T. Bell, Men of Mathematics)
