What is quote worthy?
What makes a thing quote worthy? Like all quote worthy comments, its elegant simplicity belays the deeply profound thoughts that arise, the more you ruminate upon it. Or it is just wisdom so important, its a keeper.
I have a collection of quotes and thought it high time I put some into this blog. As much as I like to talk about my own brilliance, or to hear my slave reinforce this insanity, I think I’ll temper myself a tad by starting with some favorite quotes by others.
I will continue to add to this list over time so you may want to check back from time to time. Tomorrow we’ll get to my quotes.. Today, let’s start with a favorite, from the movie, Don Juan DeMarco
An “X” favorite:
There are only four questions of value in life, Don Octavio.
- What is sacred?
- Of what is the spirit made?
- What is worth living for,
- and what is worth dying for?
The answer to each is the same,
only love – Don Juan DeMarco

Lincoln quote, with humor
It is better to remain silent and thought a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt – President Lincoln
I use that quote all the time, and have for years attributed it to President Lincoln. I know better than to ramble. Researchers have now concluded he was quoting someone else, but I think I’ll stay with Lincoln. As a self educated man, who was quite folksy, and definitely did say it, the quote really fits the man.
Researchers think he was quoting Samuel Clemen’s original line from an article in the Saint Lewis Examiner circa. 1858-59 were in Clemens was paraphrasing from the bible: “Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.” (Prov.17:28) (NIV): Its not so different from law four of the 48 laws of power: Always Say Less than Necessary… oops just broke that one again.
