What is your best Quote?
Dec 11, 2007

Wise Quotes are necessary and generally applicable in every aspects of our lives.
Therefore,my number one quote is thus:

"Vanity + Vanity = Vanity."
---King Solomon.

Since,vanity of vanity is vanity,said the Preacher[King Solomon],and it's my most valuable of all quotes,then it doesn't make any difference if i ask : what's your number one quote,and by who?

I translate this quote from my Mother tongue Pashto,
I Mountain is High there is a way on top of it ..
It means that even if it is too difficult task still there is solution for it .but it needs some logic to solve it or accomplish it .

Re: What is your best Quote?

this is one of my favorite qoutes:

"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it. "

-Mother Teresa

I actully heared this quote from a drunk inmy home town of Gboko in Benue state of Nigeria, W Africa. And I combined it with one I found in a book Written by my best author Chinua Achebe. The drunk said: "Man propose and God propose..." And then Achebe said in his book Girls at War "nothing puzzles God..."

so I have combined these two into one quote that I love quoting: "man propose and God propose; nothing puzzles God.

thses few words make a lot of meaning to me and the give me the reason to forge on with life when in trying times.

That same Mike Murdock said:

1.Giving is a proof that you have conquered Greed

2.Go where you are celebrated instead of where you are tolerated

3.When fatique walks in,faith walks out.

4.Patient is the weapon that forces deception to reveal itself.

5.When you want something you have never had,you have got to do something you have never done.

AND i so much love how Dr.Munroe uses instances to qualify phenomena in every of his books...ofcourse my friend[s] you can give more than one quote.

Best quotes....I like that topic smile

I also admire Shweta's favorite quote, by Gandhi: "Be the change that you want to see in the world"...

Nevertheless, I adore a saying by the second Muslim Caliph Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, when he said in Arabic:
متى استعبدتم الناس و قد خلقهم الله أحراراً ؟
meaning literally: " How come do you enslave people, while God created them free? "...

Moreover, the fourth Caliph, 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib once said:

" If poverty were a man, I would have slayed him".

Futhermore, John Cage had an interesting statement:

"I can't understand why people are frightened by new ideas. I'm frightened of old ones".

Yes Hayk, that's similar to an old Muslim statement:

Work for your worldly life as if you were eternal, and work for your afterlife as if you will die tomorrow...
