" Home of the free because of the brave."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Jim Johnson --- Wyoming
I saw this one on of the magnetic ribbons that people have displayed on their cars. Unfortunately, I think that many of us take our freedom for granted. It really hit home at a time like this.

" If you don't believe that you have a chance...why should other people give you one?"
--- Written in 2005 by Ashley A. --- New York
My friends and I were talking about tryouts and they didn't see any point in trying out because they thought they would be sitting the bench anyway. Well I told them that if they can't even tell themselves that they have a chance, why should our coach give them one?

" There is no cure for birth or death... so save and strive for the interval!"
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Elizabeth O. --- Tasmania, Australia
This was a quote commonly used and very much believed in by my best friend, Olivia Mainwaring. Unfortunately and much to my despair, she died in Oct '04' due to a very rare cancer. I decided I really wanted to submit this quote and make it known to people out there to really give life all you've got, because you never know when it is going to end! Remember: Persistence and Resistance!

" Hurry makes bad Curry."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Mrs. Aparna Handu
This used to be quoted to us children by my father in our native tongue many years ago. Curry is a typical Indian dish which would to a layman be - a slow concoction of herbs, condiments and spices in an oil base with a certain vegetable/meat dish slowly cooking in it. Each item is to be added, in the right amount, at the instant when the previously added ingredient has completely enriched the curry. The parallel to life is that we must savor each moment until the full flavor has been extracted and then move forward to savor the next. To hurry, both in life and while brewing a curry, will get you to the end, but sans any flavor.
