Today, I found out what it was like to be a proctologist. Had to work with assholes all day.
""A man must know his destiny. if he does not recognize it, then he is lost. By this I mean, once, twice, or at the very most, three times, fate will reach out and tap a man on the shoulder. if he has the imagination, he will turn around and fate will point out to him what fork in the road he should take, if he has the guts, he will take it.""- GEN George S. Patton

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

Humor quote of the day for me

I came into work with a headache today, and mentioned that I was heading down to the nurses station to pick up some asprin.
One of the guys on the outgoing shift who just turned 20 in Feb. said to me..."You know..In my years of experience I've found that pain can be ignored...."
I was laughing the whole way down to policing up my asprin..

Viktor Frankl from Man's Search for Meaning:
Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked.

Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

The Gettysburg Address

"The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced." - Abraham Lincoln

The best speeches need no further explanation.

So I kneed him hard in his junk, and asked him if he wanted me to pick up a couple aspiring for him.

Live right so when it comes your time to die,
you will not be like those whose hearts are filled with
the fear of death, who weep and pray for a little more
time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."

Not sure where it came from but it helps me every time I feel like stopping:

"I do it because I can, I can because I want to, I want to because you said I couldn’t"

A few more that motivate me:

"I'm not telling you its going to be easy, but I'm saying it will be worth"

"It's a lifestyle - train like there's no finish line."
