Good friends should know me pretty well. Wondering just how well?
Game: See just how well you know me. Let me know if you can figure out where some of the quotes came from!

"... And that old star that you've been wishin' on is shining mighty bright,
but it's the fire inside your heart that's gonna lead you to the light.
How you ever gonna know what it's like to live there?
How you ever gonna know victory?
How you ever gonna know what it's like when dreams become reality?
How you ever gonna know how it feels to hold her (him)?
How you ever gonna know what it's like to dance?
How you ever gonna know, if you never take the chance?"

-- That's kind of an easy one if you know me and my music. Any guesses?

"If you open your mind to the impossible, you might find the truth."
-- Hint: It's a TV show...

-- Rudyard Kipling
(This one is in memory of my Grandma)

"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
Ane yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

.... If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the earth and everything that's in it,
And - what's more -  you'll be a Man, my son!"

"You must follow your own path. No one can choose it for you."
Any guesses there?

"Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy."
-Edgar Bergen

"There's people that'll tell you 'It's just no use,' and there's people that'll tell you that you're gonna lose.
People that'll tell you anything your gonna listen to. Do what you gotta do."


Here are a couple of fun ones:
"'Work now, freak later.'  'Right.... How much later?'"

"Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?"
(Quoted from different places.)

"You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need."
-Mic Jagger

The Impossible Dream
-Joe Darion
"... This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far.
To fight for the right, without question or pause.
To be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause.
And I know, if I only be true to this glorious quest,
That my hrart will lie peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest.
And the world will be better for this,
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce or courage
To reach the unreachable star...."

"In seeking your destiny, patience is your ally."

"Dream as if you'll never die, but live like you'll die tomorrow."

"Work like you don't need the money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one is watching."
(Unknkown authors)

"Sometimes people care too much. I think it's called love."

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
is just to love and be loved in return."

"Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have
Love doesn't strut, doesn't have a swelled head, doesn't force itself on others.
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the vest,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Love never dies."
-How 'bout that one?

"Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it.
Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good.
Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.
Make friends with nobodies; don't be the great somebody."
