    I see some interesting and unique quotes in members signatures.
    So this is a Quote of the day thread;

    Confucius say...
    Man who walk through airport turnstile sideways going to Bangkok.

    I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing.
    Anais Nin

    Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

    “Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.” Buddha

    CONFUCIUS SAYS:"Man who smoke pot choke on handle."

    "Reality is simply the loss of ego. Destroy the ego by seeking its identity. Because the ego is no entity it will automatically vanish and reality will shine forth by itself."
    and
    "Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside"

    Sri Ramana Maharshi, his teachings are straight from god.

    15 Laws of Life By "SWAMI VIVEKANANDHA"

    1. Love Is The Law Of Life: All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore, love for love's sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live.

    2. It's Your Outlook That Matters: It is our own mental attitude, which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light.

    3. Life is Beautiful: First, believe in this world - that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, think that you do not understand it in the right light. Throw the burden on yourselves!

    4. It's The Way You Feel: Feel like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha. It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality, without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God.

    5. Set Yourself Free: The moment I have realised God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.

    6. Don't Play The Blame Game: Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.

    7. Help Others: If money helps a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.

    8. Uphold Your Ideals: Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

    9. Listen To Your Soul: You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.

    10. Be Yourself: The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves!

    11. Nothing Is Impossible: Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin - to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

    12. You Have The Power: All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.

    13. Learn Everyday: The goal of mankind is knowledge... now this knowledge is inherent in man. No knowledge comes from outside: it is all inside. What we say a man 'knows', should, in strict psychological language, be what he 'discovers' or 'unveils'; what man 'learns' is really what he discovers by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.

    14. Be Truthful: Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.

    15. Think Different: All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.

    The best way to get approval is not to need it. Hugh Macleod

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. Terry Pratchett

    Anyone who uses the phrase 'easy as taking candy from a baby' has never tried taking candy from a baby. Unknown

    OK today something funny and not philosophic:

    "If you lose your left arm your right arm is left."
    Unknown source.

    and something philosophic:

    "The fear of loss is a path to the dark side."

    "The idea of time is only in your mind. It is not in the Self. There is no time for the Self. Time arises as an idea after the ego arises."
