    Quotes

    Favorites, funny, insightful, etc... whether you know who said it or not. And if someone is wrong about the first person to say it - who cares it doesn't matter as much as what is shared. I hope this is fun and inspirational.

    The first one says allot about why I like FS. 'Cause it always does and allot!

    "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
    I remember George Carlin saying this back in the 80s but I don't know that he was the first. There is a old email recirculating with his routine in it where he closes with that quote. This newest one I have seen has a number of edits of his "language" so it is "safe." - like that matters but some just don't like that "brand" of language.

    "I wouldn't want to belong to the kind of club that would have a guy like me for a member."

    That was originally said by Groucho Marx, although Woody Allen repeated it in "Annie Hall."

    I've always been partial to:

    "It's all the same ******n' day, man"

    Janis Joplin said this in a monologue in one of her songs, I believe it was either "Down on Me" or "Ball and Chain"; I'd verify only it is WAY too early in the day right now to be playing Janis Joplin....

    Kurt Browning's Dad was quoted at the 92 Olympics as telling Kurt: "Be careful, when they make the ice they make it slippery-side up."

    Thanks Toni... I always thought the whole ice is slippery thing came from Danny Kwan's remarks post '02 games...

    Here's my favorite quote:

    "take care of the luxuries & the necessities will take care of themselves" dorothy parker... (whom in my more arrogant moments, I'm convinced I was in a former life... ahh... the pleasure of previous life egoism...!!)

    "The only disability in life is a bad attitude." - Scott Hamilton

    I used that quote as my senior quote... and I still try to live by it, but it's hard... I'm definitely not that type of person lol

    Well, on the skating quote side, I've always liked "You don't know how pleased I was with this short program because you have no idea how bad it could have been." This was said by Tiffany Chin, at the 86 Nationals, after she'd spent the entire off-season getting "body realignment" or whatever it was that IMO truly screwed up her career. For some reason, I find that this quote can apply to a lot of things in life that turn out much better than expected.....

    That also happens to be a bumper sticker that the Developmentally Disabled Center came out with in 1999 when I first did some work with them, funny I didn't think I came up with it, but as soon as I told a few there, suddenly they had them printed up in a couple of months.

    That is one to live by IMO! Thanks Tonichelle!

    Here are two more...

    "do or do not... there is no try" yoda... this is my personal life motto ~ because I believe that life is too short to make excuses for the things you didn't do because you didn't want to do 'em... either I call or I don't... I never tried to call...

    and...

    "be who you are & say what you feel... those who mind don't matter & those that matter, don't mind" dr. seuss... advice you can never go wrong with, espcially if you post in figure skating boards...

    See, now, apparently Yoda should have had more of an input into how CoP works, because you can TRY to DO a complete quad but as long as you TRY to get the rotations in, you can still get partial credit.......

    Television and film demand that people at all levels have brass balls or brass ovaries. Unfortunately, we live in the reign of the eunuch..................
