This was the final quote from a documentary about the ocean I once watched - can't remember the name of the show, but I remember the quote - this was in reference to the sea:

"If you drink it, you die. If you fall into it, you die. And if you work all your life on it... you die."

I also love the quote in my signature, from Isak Dinesen:

"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the ocean."

I think I like quotes about the ocean, now that I think about it...

Love all of the Churchill quotes, he had some real gems.

Here's my favorite Winston quote, I share this one with my students all the time.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."

Some other great ones:

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."

"Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe."

"He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire."

"Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events."

To my children when they ask AGAIN for something they've already been told NO about:


Would you ask again if I said YES ?

Then don't ask twice when I say NO !

She would just kill me if saw I posted that. Maybe I shouldn't have had that extra glass of wine tonight.

AND, I'm ashamed that none of the other man card holders thought of that first.

In all seriousness, I really do like the quote in my sig. Found it after going to Yosemite Park and doing some some research on John Muir.

Oh? You hate your job? Well, why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that, you know. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.

I love California. I practically grew up in Phoenix.

...Dan Quayle


The word "genius" isn't applicable in football. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.

It's hard to bull**** the ocean. It's not listening, you know what I mean?

one of my favorite authors that douglas adams. here are a couple more from the essential book for traveling the universe:

He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible
exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws.

The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't.

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot
of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

~Douglas Adams

I'm getting low on water and the only thing that I can do is drink my own pee.... and if I just peed on the ground, that's all those fluids wasted.

Bear Grylls,

made even funnier by the fact that he stayed in a hotel when he was supposed to be bushing it - dont get me wrong, I love Bear and could never do the thing he does, but of all things to ACTUALLY do........

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

...Steve Jobs

Steve is one of my favorite people. One of the most inspirational speeches I have ever heard (or read) is his Stanford University commencement address-- Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
