    I can resist anything but temptation - Oscar Wilde

    Spaceghost

    It can be on any subject. I have two that i'd like to share. " A FRIEND IS,AS IT WERE A SECOND SELF". " GROWING OLD IS INEVITABLE, GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL".

    Spaceghost

    Good observation bluedeath.

    Spaceghost

    No problem Angie, I love quotes also, write down as many as you please. I gave you a thumbs up for one of your quotes, it's one of my favorites.

    bluedeath

    "Growing up is optional" reminds me of the song, "Suicide is Painless" a.k.a. The theme from MAS*H

    itsmee

    "I have nothing to declare but my genius" - Oscar Wilde. I have loads of quotations and said I would post them as I know spaceghost likes them so much - life not so good at the moment but perhaps and hopefully I'll get there.

    Life is not about the number of breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away.

    You can fool some of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. I believe Abe Lincoln said that but I'm not sure.

    Ms Sinclair

    Thanks Spaceghost.

    Spaceghost

    Way to go Ms Sinclair, I love that one too. Thumbs up for you my dear.

    The man who smiles when things go wrong has thought of someone to blame it on.

    Spaceghost

    Ilove that Ashlight, T.U. for that.

    Benjamin Franklin's quotes:


    -  Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.


    -  Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.


    -  A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.


    -  Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.


    -  Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.


    -  Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.


    -  Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.


    -  Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is.


    -  Half a truth is often a great lie.


    -  All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.

    Courage is knowing that God has you in his hands and walking through the fear of whatever you are going through because he is always there for you.

    You are right- some people cannot deal with time and then go on to do crime - shame.Of course I do realize that time in this context means punishment.

    I really like those quotes bbos46, thank you.

    Spaceghost I just saw your comment to my comment regarding the person who notifies everyone concerning birthdays and anniversaries and such. I would be glad to do it though it would be nice to have it done in rotation with a few others. Any volunteers?? Would have to be of course someone who would come online here daily during your "time". Again, any volunteers?? I still think it's a great idea and would be more than happy to take a poll starting tomorrow and I'd gather the names and birthdates and such (family members of users included if wanted) and keep a list and pass it along to anyone who would assist with rotation. Again..ANY VOLUNTEERS?? Let me know. I'm turning in now as we ole hipsters need our beauty rest. Keep me posted here Spaceghost. Good night all!

    Spaceghost

    Thanks, ole hipster, SURE I will volunteer, and we'll see if we can get some help, I'll do all that I can to help. I usually come on site around 10 pm Eastern time and stay till about 12 midnight. I still work and go to school on Tuesday nights. Will keep you posted. Good night to you, sweet dreams.

    ole hipster

    OOPS I posted this answer to the WRONG QUESTION! Don't know how I did it but I did it. I apologize for any confusion but this was really in response to a discussion concerning notifying everyone of other users b-days & anniversaries...early senility strikes once again. lol

    papa peg

    Hi ole hipster how you today

    Poppy3

    good idea - I always look to see when the people on this site were born - not always entered though

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
    - Epicurus


    I had an entire discussion going about this quote called, "Why a God." If you want to comment, please read that one and comment there too. Thank you.

    Spaceghost

    Man,that's deep, thanks bluedeath.

    Spaceghost

    Thanks, bluedeath, I'll give you a T.U. when I get some more votes , used all up earlier.

    Spaceghost

    Bluedeath, I gave you a thumbs up.

    Spaceghost

    Thanks Angie, I just gave you a thumbs up too.

    Even though He can, what if He chooses not to intervene so WE may learn from our own mistakes, to make this world a better place and for us to grow spirtitially to hopefully improve this world. Where this world is, we have put it there. It is on us to correct our errors,....and immediately!!!

    descartes: i think therefore i am.

    Spaceghost

    That's deep, way to go cogito ergo sum, thank you.

    ghost you are right on the money....................great answer

    For my Epitaph........I wasn't  then I was now I aint again.
