  • Revenge is like a tennis ball in that once served, is likely to be returned.


  • All start differently but end the same.


  • Life is very much like traveling a highway, in that there are always at least two directions that we can travel, except at its beginning and at its ending.


  • More is always planned for tomorrow than is ever done today.


  • Some egos are so voracious that they will devour any ego that they encounter.


  • We become perfect only when we become perfectly dead.
