    I enjoy reading thought provoking quotes here’s a sample, see if you can add some:

    Age only matters when one is aging. Now that I have arrived at a great age I might as well be 20 (Picasso)

    There is nothing which we receive with so much reluctance as advice (Joseph Addison)

    Content makes poor men rich, discontent makes rich men poor (Benjamin Franklin)

    How about this one.

    As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pi**ing everyone off is a piece of cake. :whistle:

    Following on from that T,

    you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time.

    Another,

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the one you did do.  (Mark Twain)

     

    Oh and,

    Never drink wine alone.  (me)

    One often contradicts an opinion when it is really the tone in which it has been presented that is unsympathetic

    An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity: a pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity

    Do not take life too seriously, you will never get out of it alive

    This one just made me giggle for some reason!:

    Anytime time you see a turtle on top of a fence post, you know he had some help

    I really like this one;

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming “WOW what a ride!” (Hunter S Thompson)
