Favorite Quotes or Sayings

Post by BobCat on Thu Aug 05, 2010 10:50 am

There was something similar on the other forum, so I'll start that again here with a quote I like so much that I use it on my own blog:

"These are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others."

Haha! I never saw The Princess Bride, but I just had a big meeting that I helped coordinate at work, and one of the women I had to collaborate with kept saying that things were "organic," or needed to be done "organically." She must have used that term 10 times in a 10 minute meeting. The agenda should be more "organic," or that changes should be made "organically," or something like that. Whaaa?? I had never heard that word used in a business environment before, but she obviously just loved it, and I have no idea of what she was trying to say. I even asked a couple of coworkers if they had ever heard it used like that, because I wanted to understand what she was talking about, and the consensus is that she was just crazy.

I think it must be one of those new "trendy" business phrases. The one that really gets me is "reach out." Sales people are always wanting to "reach out" to us. Frankly, I find that just a little too touchy feely, and it just comes off as creepy to me.

But to each his own...

Watch the Princess Bride sometime. I believe it to be one of the most quotable movies of all time!

If you want to become whole, let yourself be partial. If you want to become straight let yourself be crooked. If you want to become full let yourself be empty. If you want to be given everything, give everything up

Notables & quotables, along with bumper stickers

Post by Sue Short on Thu Dec 30, 2010 6:47 pm

I think we had a topic like this in one of the previous forums. So I thought I
would bring it back.

Today I was at Whole Foods and in the parking lot saw a VW beetle with
a bumper sticker that read "Read my lipstick, I vote Democratic." All I could say
was Rock On Sister.

I moved your post into the topic that we had, which was under the "Fun Stuff" forum. Great bumper sticker, by the way!
