Hey guys,

I thought I would start up a thread with my own personal quotes and add to it from time to time.
You can add your own, or alternatively any other quotes you might find interesting.

"If you want a job well done, go to the person who has the most to do. The rest don't have the time" Alex Sarris

Looking forward to this thread being very very very long.

Alex

While watching a Gator game. My brother-in-law's gf after a touchdown and everyone is jumping up and down screaming.

"Did the Gators just get a home run?".....

Not exactly a good quote, but funny.

Dave,

After your quote I googled John Hughes and what an amazing list of credits. Shame he passed away in 2009 at the age of 59. Many of these credits are real classics.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000455/

Check it out guys !!!

Continuing with the quotes:-

"An optimist is one who takes a chance, a pessimist is one who took that chance" Alex Sarris.
