                            NWTK: Which Quotes You Like Or Inspire You?

                            I like quotes.

                            Some because they inspire me, or some just because...

                            I'd like to know which quotes other members like or that inspire them?

                            Here's a few to get you started:

                            If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.
                            - Katherine Hepburn

                            What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
                            - Ralph Waldo Emerson

                            A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
                            = Walter Winchell
