TBD on Ning

Are there any writings that inspire or motivate you? Anything that always makes you think and helps you face whatever issues you face?

If so, please share. I'm starting a collection and I want you to help jump-start things, because I'm not feeling particularly inspired or motivated right this second. I need some help.

No fair just saying things like "the dirty limericks of Theodor Giesel" or "The Bible" because we all know that even in the best collection of limericks, some are better than others. I'm looking for the good stuff.

Here, I'll show you mine if you show me yours:

The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas. (Linus Carl Pauling)
Thanks; Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 is just the sort of thing I was hoping for.
It sounds cheesy Danny but picking up the phone and talking to my best friend Hannah always gives me a bump. She has a blog and is an excellent writer as well.It's just a little one with a few entries, but she has a way of putting a positive light on things.That's why I love her. :-)
How often have we heard this..."To thine own self be true" ? It's a staple for me, not so much for inspiration or motivation, but just for living. What I didn't know was the FULL quote until I looked it up just now!

"To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."
William Shakespeare
But, when talking jump-starting, getting-things-movin', gettin' the job done, kind of inspiration or motivation.....it's in the music for me. Nothing will make me jump to it faster than putting on some upbeat songs I love! I'll work all day and night to get the job done if I've got tunes to accompany me.

Me too. I love that.
Woody Allen, Yosemite Sam, and Friedrich Nietzsche all invigorate me for good or evil.

"Ya better say yer prayers, ya flea-bitten varmaint, I'm a-gonna blow ya to smithereenies!" Which one said that?
Yo! semite Sam, of course!!
Note to self: Buck up Buttercup. No one else is going to do it for you.
It's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye.

We never lost an eye because we listened Aggie. lol
Reminds me of the joke.
Fat middle aged guy sitting in a bar of a motel at the airport. Really great looking woman comes through the door and just as she gets inside she sneeezes and a object comes flying toward the guy. It hits the floor and he catches it on first bounce. Looks at it and notices it is a glass eye. He hands it to the woman and she goes in the ladies room and when she comes out she heads up the stairs to the conference rooms. About a half hour later he is still sitting at the bar waiting for time for his flight. The woman comes down the stairs walks up and asks if she can buy him a drink. He says sure. They have a drink and she asks him if he would like to go up stairs with her. Of course he says yes, and away they go. After an hour of the best sex he has ever had, he is exausted. She is up and getting dressed. he says "Look, I don't want to be seen as clueless but, out of all the other guys here, why did you choose me to make love too. She looks at him and says
"You just caught my Eye"
