    The greatest results in life are usually attained by simple means and the exercise of ordinary qualities. These may for the most part be summed in these two: common-sense and perseverance.

    "I Would Challenge You To A Battle Of Wits But I See You Are Unarmed" regularly and incorrectly attributed to William Shakespeare......but hey, this is my favourite (non-)quote but someone must have said it (I know that I have!).

    That sounds very much like something Churchill would have said. Remember the one where Lady something or other said " If you were my husband, I would poison your coffee." and Churchill replied, "Madam if I were your husband, I would drink it!"

    The most likely way for the world to be destroyed, most experts agree, is by accident. That's where we come in; we're computer professionals. We cause accidents.

    I am going to call my kids Ctrl, Alt and Delete. Then if they muck up I will just hit them all at once.

    "Never sweat the petty stuff and never pet the sweaty stuff."

    My entire world is built around this pyslosephy. And before you ask, we always spell it that way.

    I learned this when I accepted Justin Bieber as my personal savior.

    Boy it's quiet in this thread..... Why do people keep running over a thread a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give their vacuum one more chance?
