"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you . . .

Then you probably don't really understand the gravity of the situation . . ."

Sorry, Barry :happy:

I think there's some website that sells negative versions of the usual motivational dreck that companies like to put up on the walls. My favorite was the one that went:

"Positive thinking . . .

. . . is the only thing that keeps me from being up on the roof, naked, with a bottle of Jack Daniels and a deer rifle . . ."

David,

I understand your cynicism. My MO, though is to try and keep the baby and get rid of the bathwater.

Awesome quote, Mike Y. Mastery is something for which all of us should strive, in my considerably humble opinion.

(BTW, there's a book called Mastery that's a great read on that very subject.)

My favorite:

There is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

A personal job quote of mine.

When you're up to your *** in alligators, sometimes it's hard to remember that your main objective was to drain the swamp...
