Favorite quotes

I'm a big fan of the simple wisdom (and humor) expressed in quotes. So just for shiggles, I'm going to post a few of my favorites. I've probably paraphrased and butchered a few of them. In no particular order and certainly not comprehensive:

"Everybody wanna be big, but ain't nobody wanna lift no heavy-ass weights." - Ronnie Coleman

"Only two things are infinite; human stupidity and the universe. And I'm not certain about the latter." - Einstein allegedly said this.

"Two things a man should never be angry at: Those things he cannot change, and those things which he can" - Unknown

"Never take a crap until you get on the clock. Don't break a sweat until you are off the clock. Never get your pussy and your paycheck from the same place" - Blue collar worker's axioms.

"In theory, theory and practice are the same; in practice, they're not" - Yogi Berra allegedly said this.

"A man with one watch always knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never certain" Unknown.

"Economic history is a never-ending series of episodes based on falsehoods and lies, not truths. It represents the path to big money. The object is to recognize the trend whose premise is false, ride that trend and step off before it is discredited." - George Soros

"Hyperbaric surgery (gastric bypass) is the biggest cop-out since suicide was invented." - unknown
