My favorite has always been this one-
"Some men see things as they are and ask why ,I dream things that never were and ask why not"-Robert Kennedy.
I find it incredibly poignant.
Cheers

Anna's election campaign reminds me of one of Winston Churchill's quotes-"You can never underestimate the intelligence of the electorate."

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe." Albert Einstein

This one is also applicable to AFF members

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” – John Powell

Another one, the short version is my current flyertalk signature.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Mark Twain.

And a third one for good measure, another Mark Twain quote.

"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear." :-|

Continuing the Churchill theme: (allegedly) Lady Astor to Churchill: "If you were my husband, I'd poison your tea," to which he responded, "Madam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it!"

Love this one,

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.

"Man with one chopstick go hungry."

- Saw this as I walked past China Moon restaurant, Bondi Road but I believe quote is attributed to Confucius.
