    The following are all qoutes by Jack Handey that I just had to share.

    When I saw the old bum pushing his grocery cart down the street, at first I felt sorry for him. But then when I saw what was in his cart I thought, Well, no wonder you're a bum, look at the dumb things you bought.

    As I felt the soft cool mud squish between my toes, I thought, Man, these are not very good shoes!

    I think the most beautiful sunset I ever saw was on page 4 and 5 of The Book of Sunsets.

    When you're ten years old, and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again.

    And last but not least...

    With every new sunrise, there is a new chance. But with every sunset, you blew it.

    Our Deepest Fear
    "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous ? Actually, who are you not to be ? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. You are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within you. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

    "Most people, sometime in their lives, stumble across truth. And most jump up, brush themselves off and hurry on about their business as if nothing happened."
    Sir Winston Churchill

    I can't remember the words, but my next favorite one is when this women said "If you were my husband, i would poison your drink!" and he said (churchill) "Mam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it"

    But the first is my favorite.
