Right I've totally nicked this idea from Jaina (our poster, not the actual character) but how about this; Jedi Wisdom of the Day. If you hear a nice little quote or mantra, post it here, be it inspirational Ghandi stuff or witty Oscar Wilde stuff or a Jedi (or Sith, for that matter) quote.

Embarrassingly, I can't actually think of one right now...

Tut, tut. The little thief. Wink

Anyway, here is my little piece of not-quite-Jedi wisdom for today:

When life gives you lemons, keep them. Because hey, free lemons!

I was TOTALLY thinking of that! But I didn't want to derail the thread so early on! (Not that you're derailing the thread, I'm still getting used to the customs here, that's all Wink )

Wait Life is giving out free fruit and you guys are chucking it at his head? What's with all the hate towards poor Life for trying to be nice to his fellow forum goers? *gets handed note, reads* Oh you meant a different one, my bad Razz Move along, move along

On a more serious note I hate to break it to you but Mara beat you guys to the punch with a thread for quotes of the day: http://www.eucantina.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=827

Not as nifty a title I'll grant but I'm not sure how this thread will be different from Mara's. I'm going to give you guys a chance to make a case for keeping both open though.

Well, this is about profound words of questionable intelligence, but ultimately provide inspiration or help to someone at some point in their day. Before yelling at that guy from the call centre, just think; "There's always a bigger fish". It could be used in a number of contexts, if you're being mugged, bear in mind the guy about to punch you could be standing in front of a person with a knife. Before lashing out at someone who lost something important of yours, just think "There is no emotion; there is peace".

Is that good enough? We need an emoticon that shows "phew" or exasperation, like one wiping their forehead... I'll put it in the suggestions thread.

Let's let it run its course, see how similar they get.

I'm willing to see how it evolves. I'll leave it open so long as in the process of having fun parodying quotes or inventing variations the thread doesn't devolve into a Jedi Master Seinfeld quote of the day.

As for lemons I believe Get Fuzzy had a variation of something to the effect of: "when life gives you lemons chuck 'em at a jerk's head"

I know! I thought it was their payback for enquiring about the flap, but luckily it was all a misunderstanding. Where's a 'phew' smilie when you need one ... Rolling Eyes

Would this quote be in keeping with this thread: 'The original point and click interface
was a Smith & Wesson.'?

Or what about 'If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you ...'?

When asked the timeless question of which is better, cats or dogs, one should reflect on another question, is it better to be in the doghouse, or the cathouse? Laughing

Alcohol gives you infinite patience for stupidity.

A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing

I can resist everything except Temptation

Its not a matter of whether you win or lose its how drunk you get.
