[ Quoted ]

Just a bunch of my favorite quotes on running and life:


"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going."-Jim Ryan

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" -Alice in Wonderland

"The case with most people is that they enter life with one or more accidental characteristics of which they say "this is the way I am. I cannot do otherwise." Then the world gets to work on them and thus the majority are ground into conformity. In each generation a small part cling to this "I cannot do otherwise" and loose their minds. Finally, there are a very few who in spite of all ife's terrors cling with increasing inwardness to this "I cannot do otherwise." They are the geniuses."

"Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd." -Edith Sitwell

"Fruitcakes in the kitchen,
Fruitcakes on the street
Struttin' naked through the crosswalk
In the middle of the week
Half-baked cookies in the oven,
Half-baked people on the bus
There's a little bit of fruitcake left in everyone of us."

"I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead" -Jimmy Buffett

"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." -Hippocrates

"I have no particular talent. I am merely inquisitive." -Einstein

"When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do." –Walt Disney

"Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it."

"Color is essential to your life. The colors you love are deep and vital affirmations of who you are. Bringing those colors into your day and your environment is the ultimate form of self-expression." -Pantone

"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." -Lee Holz

"You've got to go out on a limb sometimes because that's where the fruit is." -Will Rogers

"Take nothing but pictures,
Leave nothing but footprints,
Waste nothing but time."

"I am in my own little world.
but it's okay - they know me here."
