    The topic title says it all. So what is it? And where did you quote it from?
    It can be from anywhere; books you'd read, games you'd played, music heard, video or movies watched, and even from sources such as, holy book, your parents/grand parents, folklore, local anecdote, customs, etc. There's no need to provide reason why, but an explanation is always welcome.

    * If it's something taken from your native language/dialect, please do provide the original text, and translation. :)

    I've several, however for now mine would be;

    [quote author=Christina Baker Kline's Book - Orphan Train]I believe in ghosts. They’re the ones who haunt us, the ones who have left us behind. Many times in my life I have felt them around me, observing, witnessing, when no one in the living world knew or cared what happened. I am ninety-one years old, and almost everyone who was once in my life is now a ghost.

    Sometimes these spirits have been more real to me than people, more real than God. They fill silence with their weight, dense and warm, like bread dough rising under cloth.[/quote]

    I don't know who said this, but it was a quote my AP Art History teacher had in her room back in High School. It went something like this:

    "Cultivate a sense of urgency so that at the end of each day you can repeat: I have not wasted my day!!"

    Love it and it's been stuck with me throughout all these years. I even have it in my classroom now somewhere posted!

    one of the managers at my school had a good one:

    Another Week Ends :-


    All targets met
    All customers satisfied
    All systems fully operational
    All staff keen and well motivated
    All pigs fed and ready to fly.
