"How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think."

 

Adolf Hitler

 

 

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

 

Teddy Roosevelt

"For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but may have eternasting life." "For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but the world through Him might be saved". "He that believeth on Him are not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only Son of God". And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil". "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reprieved".

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come." (James Earl Jones, Field of Dreams)

 

" ... awake thou that sleepest, arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." (Eph. 3:14b, KJV)

 

Jesus and baseball, my two favorite things.

Some Serious ones although I prefer the funny although they easily offend. I have a couple of books one with funny quotes on life and one with serious quotes on life.

 

To me, life is like the back nine in golf. Sometimes you play better on the back nine. You may not be stronger, but hopefully you're wiser. And if you keep most of your marbles intact, you can add a note of wisdom to the coming generation.

-- Clint Eastwood

 

If you rest, you rust.

-- Helen Hayes

-- Andy Rooney

 

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

-- Issac Asimov

 

They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.

-- Ernest Hemingway

 

There is no such a thing as a stupid question, only stupid people!

"Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga."

It was actually the Dali Lama himself that first uttered these inspiring words to Carl so the credit should actually go to him.

Technically, you are correct. However, I did not witness the Lama blessing us with the quote, only Carl. However, I have no reason to believe Carl would lie.
Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.Leave the gun, take the cannolis.
Possibly the two best quotes of the movie.
