To die for the revolution is a one-shot deal; to live for the revolution
means taking on the more difficult commitment of changing our day-to-day
life patterns.

"Self-Pity" by D.H. Lawrence


"Pain is your friend, your ally, it will tell you when you are seriously injured, it will keep you awake and angry, and remind you to finish the job and get the hell home. But you know the best thing about pain?" "Don't know!" "It lets you know you're not dead yet!"
Master Chief Urgayle (Viggo Mortensen, GI Jane)

Re: Rebel/New Republic Wisdom

Subject: Modern Philosophies

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence you tried.

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

For every action, there is a equal and opposite criticism.

He who hesitates is probably right.

Never do card tricks for the group you play poker with.

No one is listening until you make a mistake.

Succees always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

The colder the X-Ray table, the more body is required on it.

The hardeness of butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.

To steal ideas from one person is plagerism, to steal from many is research.

To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles.

Two wrongs are only the beginning.

Work is accomplished by those employees who have not reached their level of imcompentence.

You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive. (Corrolary: You never learn to pray until your kids learn to drive!)

Monday is a terrible way to spend 1/7th of your life.

*My favorite* The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

We have two companies of Marines running rampant all over the northern half of this island, and three Army regiments pinned down in the southwestern corner, doing nothing. What the hell is going on?
