    "Business is like a wheel barrow, nothing happens until you push."

    I just saw this one on a Quora post, hence the idea for this post. Post yours - motivational, deep, funny, wise, etc. Anything and everything is welcome.

    Enjoy!

    "Some people need to remind themselves to think out the box, some people have to remind themselves to stop thinking out the box, so they can "fit in". Some people can not survive without the box. Then you get the few who understand that there is no box, it never existed in the first place" - Me :xf.grin:

    OK, now that I've had a good pee...

    I love Winston Churchill quotes:

    "Dogs look up to you, cats look down on you. Give me a pig! He looks you in the eye and treats you as an equal."

    "I could not live without Champagne. In victory I deserve it. In defeat I need it."

    "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

    Bessie Braddock a British Member of Parliament said: “Winston, you are drunk, and what’s more you are disgustingly drunk.”
    Churchill replied: "Bessie, my dear, you are ugly, and what’s more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly."

    "A lie will gallop halfway round the world before the truth has time to pull its breeches on."

    Churchill to Nancy Astor:
    Nancy Astor:
    “If I were married to you, I’d put poison in your coffee.”
    Winston: "If I were married to you, I’d drink it."

    "I am a man of simple tastes—I am quite easily satisfied with the best of everything."

    "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, sweat and tears."

    "I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me."

    "You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life."

    "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."

    And probably my favorite Churchill quote on describing the Russians:
    "Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."

    I catch myself saying, "It's water under the bridge" all the time, almost to the point that when I say it now, I think to myself, "Man, I'm annoying!"
