    Charles Emerson Winchester: "Can you tell me what I'm about to say ... now?"

    "The unexamined life is not worth living." (Socrates)
    "This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes." (Morpheus from `The Matrix`)
    "I cannot help it that my pictures do not sell." (Vincent van Gogh)

    "What people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things." (Margaret Mead)
    "Philosophical problems arise when language goes on holiday" (Ludwig Wittgenstein)
    "A bad earthquake at once destroys the oldest associations: the world, the very emblem of all that is solid, has moved beneath our feet like a crust over a fluid; one second of time has conveyed to the mind a strange idea of insecurity, which hours of reflection would never have created." (Charles Darwin)
    "You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body." (Clive Staples Lewis)
    "Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these 10 things he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry for ever and ever until the end of time... but he loves you." (George Carlin)
    "He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it." (Douglas Adams)

    "I don't suffer from insanity - I enjoy every minute of it." (Anon)

    "Tiny minds need to shrink the grand concepts of the universe until they fit the size of their tiny mind"
    "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away." (Philip K. Dick)

    This is an expansion of one I have seen previously. I added the third line.

    To steal from one person is plagiarism.
    To steal from many people is research.
    To steal from no one is madness.

    Reminds me of a Picasso quote: "I don't borrow, I steal. If there's something to be stolen, I steal it."

    True success does not come from being lucky, or talented, or smart.
    The true secret is dedication.

    The hardest part of being dedicated is becoming dedicated.

    The easiest way to become dedicated is to become obsessed.

    if you can achieve 80% of the result with 20% of the effort, and that 80% is good enough, why spend 100% of the effort to achieve 100% of the result ?

    hmmm - i get the impression that one of my earlier replies has given subsequent members the idea that this is a thread for regurgitating quotes by famous people, whereas the OP requested original ones

    here's another one of mine :

    "don't expect a pure IT solution to solve what is essentially a management problem - management problems tend to call for management solutions"

    I know, I'm just one of those assholes that says things for the sake of saying them, well, here I am. Other places I am a troll, lurker, respected member of an intelligence community, a mentally unstable victim, and a half-retarded bigot.
