Email Signature Lines

I like to use a quotation at the bottom of my emails. My sister started me with the idea as she always has something sweet to end off her missals. I have stolen quotes from everywhere. These are some of my favourites.

1-20-09 The end of an Error

“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book.” Irish Proverb

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Common sense is the most widely shared commodity in the world, for every man is convinced that he is well supplied with it” Rene Descartes

“Every man takes care that his neighbour shall not cheat him. But a day comes when he begins to care that he does not cheat his neighbour. Then all goes well.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I call my wife “Three Horses”. It’s an old Indian name meaning “Nag, Nag, Nag”.

"I know of no time which is lost more thoroughly than that devoted to arguing on matters of fact with a disputant who has no facts but only very strong convictions" James E. Thorold Rogers.

"If we ever have a plan, we're screwed" Paul Newman

In the end, the most accurate indicator of the degree to which we were successful in our lives is not our personal wealth, but rather the way our children and grandchildren lead their lives

It is better to have loafed and lost than never to have loafed at all. James Thurber,

Lord, help me to be as good a person as my dogs think I am.

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction. Blaise Pascal

Never ask the barber if you need a haircut or the military about the need for war. Gwynne Dyer

Never try to teach a pig to sing, it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

No one means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is viscous. Henry Brooks Adams, historian (1838-1918)

“Oats is a grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people." Johnson
"Aye, and that's why England has such fine horses, and Scotland such fine people." Boswell

“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.” Charlie Brown

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Albert Schweitzer

“The best government is a benevolent tyranny tempered by an occasional assassination” Voltaire

The “Credit Crunch” is worse than divorce. I lost half my assets and still have a wife. Attributed to a London banker.

“The deepest sin against the human mind is to believe things without evidence” – Thomas Huxley
"The deepest sin against the human heart is to demand evidence in order to believe." – Ky

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” George Bernard Shaw

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing” Walt Disney

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. Bertrand Russell

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana. George Carlin

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe. Albert Einstein

‘You can accomplish anything in life, providing that you do not mind who gets the credit.’ Harry S. Truman

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect Mark Twain

Wikiality: If enough people believe it is true then it must be true as it is “common knowledge”.

  1. Emerson & Twain are my two favourite philosopher/theorist people in the world! And I love that Ky got quoted! :) These made me happy... can you tell? and in my obsession with Utopian studies, I think application of Shaw's quote to Wilde's remark that "progress is the realisation of Utopias", is pretty enlightening... I apologise for my randomness. This is how my mind works!

    thanks for sharing, Al :)

  2. Sister Mary Ky was so choked at the Thomas Huxley quote she almost popped a rivet. So I added her counter and ran them as a pair.

    I like Twain, love Wilde but my intellect runs more to Yogi Bera and George Carlin.

  3. True friends are those who, when you've made a fool of yourself, don't think you've done a permanent job.
