quote thingy stolen from madamruppy
Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/subjects and pick out five quotes that best suit your life as it is right now*. Tag at least five people on your f-list:

Be tagged if you want - if not then no harm no foul.

If your morals make you dreary, depend on it, they are wrong.
- Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)

I am not young enough to know everything.
- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

Don't join the book burners. Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book...
- Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
- The Dalai Lama (1935 - )

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
- Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

* given that I didn't read anywhere near all of the quotes there... these just seemed appropriate. And it was hard to stop at five...

I'll consider myself tagged. My 5:

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.
-Ben Stein

You try to give away what you want yourself.
-Lois McMaster Bujold, "Memory", 1996

Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality.
-Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970), "Am I An Atheist Or An Agnostic?", 1947

The farther behind I leave the past, the closer I am to forging my own character.
-Isabelle Eberhardt

For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else.
-Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965), speech at the Lord Mayor's banquet, London, November 9, 1954

It is hard to stop - which is why I have so many. I had to quit reading.
