Inspire us with your fav quote

Yes, off topic, but hope it's okay. It's that time of the year- of sadness and happiness, of nostalgia and anticipation, of ending and new beginning.

What's your inspirational quote? Here's one lifted straight from a photo.net thread, by one John Elder, in memory of a fellow photographer-

Quote

"No day is promised or guaranteed" said by Andre Agassi after winning the Australian Open in 2003

This one a little bit related to photography (because of the light) but sure related to life itself:

that's how the light gets in'

The photograph isolates and perpetuates a moment of time: an important and revealing moment, or an unimportant and meaningless one, depending upon the photographer's understanding of his subject and mastery of his process. -Edward Weston

Chinese maxiim ...

智者不惑,仁者不憂,勇者不懼.
The wise cannot be confused;
the benevolent will not worry;
and the brave have no fear.

To apply in photography:
Don't be tempted into switching to the Dark Side.
Don't worry about your D700 dropping its value.
Upgrade first, then reporting to your wife.

Not off topic at all. : )

One of my personal favorites,

was from Retired General Norman Schwartzkoff. When asked if he had forgiveness in his heart for those who invaded Kuwait in the war of desert storm, he replied.

Forgiveness is God's responsibility. My responsibility is to arrange the meeting.

classic.
