Picture of Quote of The week
But if everything is possible, isn't the state of being "impossible" impossible?
But saying that, the state of being impossible can't be impossible because everything is possible...

I've heard that one, also theres annother one thats something like, when in doubt lubricate
One of my favorites: "In times of near universal deceipt, truth-telling becomes a revolutionary act."
*deceit -_-
Dang, where do I know that from? It rings so many bells...
(Wait, is that sardony or a serious question?)
Oh, my. That is funny. :-D

It's from my About section (Orwell, incidentally)

I confess to not having read much Heinlen, but I do like

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
Ah, Lazarus Long!

But, if you read his wikipedia page, you might off him...
Not really - I am, I think, aware of what you refer to, but just because I don't agree with everything someone says or thinks doesn't mean I can't appreciate his work (and I actually do agree with some (though not all) of his views.)
Seriously - I know the quote, but I don't know where from. It feels like a Heinlein quote, but that's not your style.

I've got one! Complaining is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won't get you anywhere.

that's a good one, mind if I use it but say you wrote it, like this: Complaining is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won't get you anywhere. -knex_lover
Sure, but I'd like to point out that I didn't come up with it. It's anonymous.
But yeah, go for it!
