    ...set it free.
    If it comes back to you, its yours.
    If its dosen't, hunt it down and kill it.

    Words of wisdom from a office co-worker. I though it was funny as hell so I figured I'd share.

    Yeah, I used to have a poster (a parody of the original, natch) with that saying on it. That and Deteriorata ("You are a fluke of the universe / You have no right to be here.")


    Looks like there won't be a lock, because whatever was religious in the thread has been edited into oblivion. Wasn't aware that there was a ban on "death" except insofar as that tempts people into discussing what may come after.

    Regards,

    Joe

    If you love something..... Lock it in a fire-proof safe far from the prying eyes of thieves and beggars.

    Allan, neither I nor my buddies are in any mood to flog you publicly, and I sure as hell don't see any theological implications in that old 1960s saying. Looks as if you've made it through another day with your HTF membership intact. So, carry on. [​IMG]

    Let us not forget the wisdom of George Carlin:
    "If you love someone, set them free; if they come back, set them on fire."
    Sorry, I just had to mention that. [​IMG]

    ...Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself...
    Desiderata

    ...good words for forum posters and watchful admins to live by

    Some words for the more cynical posters and admins to live by [​IMG]
    Go placidly amid the noise and the waste and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof. Avoid quiet and passive persons unless you are in need of sleep. Rotate your tires. Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself and heed well their advice even though they be turkeys; know what to kiss and when. Consider that two wrongs never make a right but that three lefts do. Whenever possible, put people on hold. Be comforted that in the face of all aridity & disillusionment and despite the changing fortunes of time, there is always a big fortune in computer maintenance.
    ***
    With all its hopes, dreams, promises, & urban renewal, the world continues to deteriorate.
    Give up.

    From - Tony Hendra, "Deteriorata", The National Lampoon (c) 1972

    No, it's "two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do." [​IMG]
