    All the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.

    You can judge a man by whether he will ask for a light load or a

    strong back.

    When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us

    The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you

    lost all your money.

    Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat

    Nature gave us one tongue and two ears

    On a serious note…

    Speaking to the British court who sentenced him to be hanged for his participation in activites of the Irgun Tzva’ee Le’Umi…

    “When the prevailing government in any country is not legal, when it becomes a regime of oppression and tyranny, it is the right of its citizens – more than that, it is their duty – to fight this regime and to topple it. This is what Jewish youth are doing and will continue to do until you quit this land, and hand it over to its rightful owners: the Jewish people. For you should know this: there is no power in the world which can sever the tie between the Jewish people and their one and only land. Whosoever tries to sever it – his hand will be cut off and the curse of God will rest on him for ever.”

    -Dov Gruner ztzvk”l

    hanged by the British in Akko Prison

    Just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t understand.

    If something goes wrong at the plant, blame the guy who can’t speak English.

    I think Smithers picked me because of my motivational skills. Everyone says they have to work a lot harder when I’m around.

    Gaurdmytounge: to my knowledge I am not your long lost son =D. Yes I am like this and more IRL. It isn’t that hard to find me as I made it quite obvious here who I am (yossi zuber) though it would make your life many times easier if you had facebook (am I even allowed to mention that here or is that a controversial topic-facebook I mean)

    no sense in being pessimistic-it wouldn’t work anyway

    when i feel like exercising, i sit down until the feeling goes away

    When you don’t know what to do, walk fast and look worried.

    Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak

    My final decision is: maybe.

    You need to stand for something or you’ll fall for everything.

    There are two kinds of people who don’t say much- those who are quiet, and those who talk a lot.

    The surest way to be late is to have plenty of time.

    Anger is one letter short of danger.

    If you lose one hour in the morning, you’ll spend the rest of the day looking for it.

    When things go out of control, don’t go with them.

    Take a lesson from the weather- it pays no attention to criticism.

    Acting good is a giant step closer to being good.

    “I’m normally not a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me Superman.”

    there are more but I dont think they would make it past the mods
