I just did a quick google of inspirational quotes, and think I'd need a year's worth to find one that I might be inspired by.

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I'm possible”! —Audrey Hepburn.


That's gently amusing though.

Have any of the last 7 inspired you Babs?

Flora you put something up that appears to be endlessly buffering. Was that the point?

That looks a lot more like the south side of the Matterhorn than Mt. Everest from any angle. Which inspires me to write:

Good work people.

Herzog also said the same about the bears in Grizzly Man. He's got a total hard on for "monstrous indifference" ironically....

Jack Handey certainly speaks to the modern psyche, but the words of other great thinkers (Buddha, for example) have inspired men through the passage of millennia. Can you peek ahead to see if any of the remaining 300-plus inspirational quotes come from the ancient Greeks? If so, does any of them quote Palladas? If not, here's one:

Every woman is gall and bitterness: she gives a man two hours of pleasure, the hour he marries her,
the hour she dies.

Daddy had only just got into bed when, from the next room, a small voice called, "Hello?"

"What do you want?" Daddy demanded, perhaps a trifle less patiently than usual.

There came a long silence. Then from a sleepy child came the reply, "I don't want anything 'cept I just want to know somebody is there."

That is the cry of million of hearts, millions who feel they can manage along through life as long as there is someone to share it with.

As the bus slowed down at the crowded bus stop, the bus conductor leaned from the platform and called out, "Six only!"

The bus stopped.

He counted on six passengers, rang the bell, and then, as the bus moved off, called to those left behind: "So sorry, plenty of room in my heart - but the bus is full."

He left behind a row of smiling faces.

A little girl and her father were walking along in the evening.

She was fascinated by the stars, and kept looking up at them, but made no comment until her father asked what she was thinking.

She replied, "If the bottom side of heaven is so beautiful, how wonderful the other side must be
