Quote for the Day

Taken from Glamourpuss' site:

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

Mark Twain.

I love that.

I'd never heard that from Mark Twain, but I'll add it to his awesomeness factor.

One of our clients gave me a plaque that hangs in my house that says...

"I do not like work even when someone else does it"

That's good stuff right there.

Love it...one of my favorite is:

"Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear."

G- well, hopefully it's a correct attribution! Again, I stole it from Puss.
Susan, kind of in a different vein, but yes. Though, sorry, I like work.
TERA - I like yours too!!!

Interesting choice of quotes for today - this is the song that's been ringing in my ears for the past week or so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO0B23_gB98 (I like the Sarah Polley version more, but the videos stink.)

Squirrel, I heard but did not undestand all the words. I might have to google the lyrics. But very interesting.

Squirrel said...

Par for the course with Hip songs... even when I understand the lyrics, I'm still not sure I understand the lyrics.
