"Every Exit is an Entrance to Somewhere" - Tom Stoppard

Here are your submissions for meaningful quotes - I chose my favourite when you submitted several. Thanks! There are some gems here.

"I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance." - Socrates (posted by dimitri alexander)

"I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals." - W. Churchill (posted by bohemiantroubador)

"In spite of illness, in spite of even the archenemy sorrow, one can remain alive long past the usual date of distintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways." - Edith Wharton (posted by Julian Blue)

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." - Rev. Martin Luther King (posted by Vee)

"Live long and prosper." - Mr. Spock (posted by elizabeth green ... and it's fun!)

"When I die, I want to die like my grandfather - who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car." - Author Unknown (Julian Blue gets to submit two with this beauty)

"Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others." - JF Kennedy (posted by elizabeth green - okay, she got two also - but she blogs with Julian Blue and I don't want conflict...)

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer." - Albert Camus (posted by granny)

"During times of war, hatred becomes quite respectable, even though it has to masquerade often under the guise of patriotism." - Howard Thurman 1900-1981 (posted by dr. mike kear)

"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self" - Cyril Connolly (posted by granny... and is it a blogger's dream quote or what??)

Thanks to you all.


Comments:
don't know about blogger's dream, Gary - sounds more like sour grapes to me. :o/

I liked the grandfather one, very much. :D
 
hey! how come the authorities in Vancouver only consider it necessary to inform in one human language but no less than three canine ones?! :D
 
I guess they figure if the dogs get it, the humans can be trained by them?
 
Thanks, Gary. I was curious to see which ones you would pick. Funny, giving Elizabeth two as well; that's a dad skill (heading off conflict even before it happens).
 
Great selection, Gary. The one by Dr. Mike Kear seems especially relevant for our time. Interesting the one Julian posted about the grandfather & the car. I love the MLK quote
 
Hey Gary. I absolutely love the pic you've got here. Can I post it on my blog, giving your blog (and you) original credit ofcourse! :)
 
Vee - you're more than welcome. You can show it to your pooch and see if he/she laughs...
 
Jackie thinks it's a very appropriate sign. Esp. the good dog bit. Guarantees her treats y'see. :)
