I have been on SDN for some time and seen many great quotes in people's signature. If you guys can post your quote or quotes or poems, encouraging statement etc. it would be nice to see all the quotes in one thread. Ok I will start

"An Eye for an Eye will make the whole world blind" and
"You must be the change you want to see in the world" - Mahatma Gandhi.

The struggle to get out is needed to build the wing muscles. Without the struggle the butterfly will never fly, but will die instead.

I like this one, because it echoes my own attitude towards dental education, with respect to both the 4-year DDS/DMD program and to life-long continuing education:

"Not many years ago I began to play the cello. Most people would say that what I am doing is "learning to play" the cello. But these words carry into our minds the strange idea that there exists two very different processes: 1) learning to play the cello; and 2) playing the cello. They imply that I will do the first until I have completed it, at which point I will stop the first process and begin the second; in short, that I will go on "learning to play" until I have "learned to play" and that then I will begin to play. Of course, this is nonsense. There are not two processes, but one. We learn to do something by doing it. There is no other way."

Here are some of my favorites, please be patient:

Featured Quotes :

Change is the only constant thing in our life. So take life as it comes!

Life is ten percent how we make it; ninety percent how we take it.

Success is sweet, but it's secret is sweat.

It is not what we read, it is what we remember, that makes us learned.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.

The only way we can ever teach a child to say "I'm sorry" is for him to hear it from our lips first.

Happiness is the best cosmetic.

The way to change others' minds is with affection, and not anger.

Marry a person you love to talk to. As you get older, his/her
conversational skills will be even more important.

Whenever you notice you've made a mistake, do all what is necessary to fix it immediately.

Great minds discuss ideas, Average minds discuss events, Small minds discuss people.

If you buy what you do not need, you will need what you cannot buy.
The best way to create the future... is to create it.

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.

A bend in the road, is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn.

Keep your head and your heart in the right direction and you'll never have to worry about your feet.

The distance between success and failure can only be measured by one's desire.

The pleasure you get from your life is equal to the 'Attitude' you put into it.

Happiness is not a state to arrive at but rather, a manner of traveling.

If you do not believe in yourself... chances are that nobody else will.

Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it.

It is not great to be great, It is great to be HUMAN.

Nothing is impossible in this world, even the word Impossible says I'm possible.

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift. That's why we call it - 'The Present'.

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens - John Homer Miller.

Marry a person you love to talk to. As you get older, his/her conversational skills will be even more important.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

Never put off the work till tomorrow. What you can put off today.

Your income is not what you earn but what you save.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Life is a balance between giving and receiving, between taking care of yourself and taking care of others.

All things bright and beautiful; All creatures great and small; All things wise and wonderful; The Lord God made them all.

There are those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and those who don't know what the heck happened.

In the end, no one remembers whether or not you met the deadline, but rather how well you did the job.

Woman are meant to be loved, not to be understood.

:love: :love: :love: :love: :love: I love them all....

A good friend will put up the money to bail you out of jail. A true friend will be sitting at your side saying, "Man, that was fun!"

A penny saved ain't worth a dime.

You know there's something wrong with the world today when the best golfer is black, the best rapper is white, and the Germans don't want to go to war.

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.

Here are some of my own quotes that I find myself saying often. My friends call them "Lib-isms" :

"You can pick your spouse, but you can't pick your In-Laws" :D

"Anything work eating is messy" :p (Think about it, ice cream cone, bbq, etc.)

Life is not fair, get used to it.

The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.

You will not make $40,000 right out of school. You will not
be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.

If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss. She doesn't have tenure.

Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for it; they called it opportunity.

If you mess up it is not your parents fault, so don't whine about your mistakes. Learn from them.

Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they will give you as many times as you need to get the right answer. This does not bear the slightest resemblance to anything in life.

Life isn't divided into semesters. You don't get summers off (so true) and very few employees are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

Be nice to nerds. Chances are you will be working for one.

It is not the strongest species that will survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.
