5 Quotes meme

I stole this meme from kieri, a friend of a friend. What’s a little plagiarism among friends? At least I picked my own quotes instead of stealing hers.

Directions: Go to this page and look for a quote that is meaningful to you. Copy it! Refresh until you get a total of five quotations that mean something to you, or are about you, or you agree with them, or whatever criteria you choose. Then post those five.

”You've got to be original, because if you're like someone else, what do they need you for?" Bernadette Peters, Inside the Actors Studio

”I look to the future because that's where I'm going to spend the rest of my life.” George Burns (1896 - 1996)

”Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books.” Bell Hooks, O Magazine, December 2003

”Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll buy a funny hat. Talk to a hungry man about fish, and you're a consultant.” Scott Adams (1957 - ), Dogbert; Dilbert cartoons

”Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.” Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)

And speaking of quotes, here's a shameless plug for yesterday's post, just because I really want everyone to read the Ursula K. LeGuin item in it.
