Age doesn't matter, unless you're cheese

Age doesn't matter, unless you're cheese.-B.Burke

“No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session.” ~ Mark Twain

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible." - Walt Disney

There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come. ~Victor Hugo

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas. ~George Bernard Shaw

If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it. ~Albert Einstein

You have to have an idea of what you are going to do, but it should be a vague idea. ~Pablo Picasso

The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don't like their rules, whose would you use? ~Dale Carnegie

Ideas have become far more important to us than action - ideas so cleverly expressed in books by the intellectuals in every field. The more cunning, the more subtle, those ideas are the more we worship them and the books that contain them. We are those books, we are those ideas, so heavily conditioned are we by them. We are forever discussing ideas and ideals and dialectically offering opinions. Every religion has its dogma, its formula, its own scaffold to reach the gods, and when inquiring into the beginning of thought we are questioning the importance of this whole edifice of ideas. We have separated ideas from action because ideas are always of the past and action is always the present - that is, living is always the present. We are afraid of living and therefore the past, as ideas, has become so important to us. ~J. Krishnamurti
