"For a start, there is the fact that some of the most magnificent jewels of English literature, both comic and tragic, depend for their effect on the notion that garrulousness is a female, or womanish, quality — and not a neutral quality, either, but a fault. “I want,” says Lear’s daughter Cordelia, “that glib and oily art/ to speak and purpose not; since what I well intend/ I’ll do’t before I speak.” Lined up with her on the side of virtuous reticence are her noble and long-suffering sisters: Patient Grizelda, Isabelle Archer, Jane Bennet from Pride and Prejudice — heroines, all. Meanwhile yacking away in the babblers’ enclosure is a highly dubious collection of simpletons, snobs and witches, many of them the creations of Jane Austen who must, to judge from the adroitness with which she reproduces its cadences, have had to listen to an uncommonly high quantity of female stupidity: Mrs Bennet, Miss Bates, Mrs Elton, just for starters — though let us not forget Mrs Malaprop, or indeed Dickens’s inimitable cavalcade of voluble grotesques."

You cannot undo what is done, but you can do what is not yet done.
You can if you're Dr WhoOriginally Posted by thyristor
No you can't undo what is done, just travel to another alternate cause and effect universe where you changed the event relative to your own cause and effect universe, because the cause and effect universe you travelled to was the cause and effect universe where you changed that which you originally saw in your own cause and effect universe. There is no way to undo anything in your own cause and effect universe without causing a paradox.You can if you're Dr Who.

A witty saying proves nothing- Voltaire
If our actions stem from honesty,love, kindness, caring, and vision, then no matter what the result of our efforts, we have added something of value to our souls and to the world............
"Dont show too much Care to any one,.....because it creates a non curable pain when they start avoiding you........."
"<<Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience. Be positive,kind and gentle the doors of our souls fly open, and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.>>"
Well, I hae a couple. One, by a local man, who is very insightful.
"People say the meaning of life, is to live it, but I like to think, the meaning of life, is to find out such answers."
Very interesting ._.
And the other...

~There is no better time than now. The time to live is now. The time to dream is now. The time to imagine and forget the past is now. The time to shine is now. The time to love, bleed, sweat, and determine yourself for the things you want most is now....
We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.
Books, the children of the mind.
When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.
"It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”
It is better to copulate than never.
What are the facts? Again and again and again -- what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what "the stars foretell," avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable "verdict of history" -- what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!
History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.
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.
Minimize your therbligs until it becomes automatic; this doubles your effective lifetime -- and thereby gives you time to enjoy butterflies and kittens and rainbows.

"I could do this if I was one of those Greeks like Hypotenuse."

Just ran across this one and thought it worth a mention:
"Lighthouses are more helpful than churches."

Here are lot of interesting quotes but i just want to say "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing"
Before you criticise someone, try walking a mile in their shoes.
Then, if they object to your criticism, at least you'll be a mile away from them, and you'll have their shoes.
