    Got any quotes or phrases you like?

    I'm currently enjoying this oldie, but goldie:
    "I have gained this by philosophy: that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law."
    - Aristotle

    I also think this one is appropriate these days:
    "Corporation, n. An ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility."
    - Ambrose Bierce

    (yes, I picked them up from Civilization IV. Leonard Nimoy is a great quote-reader...he's geekdom's Morgan Freeman)

    "Take me to you, imprison mee, for I
    Except you'enthrall mee, never shall be free,
    Nor ever chast, except you ravish mee."

    ~John Donne

    (Currently reading a lot of Donne, but I have loved this since I was in High School. There is something about the mixture of passion, lust, longing, and religion about Donne that I can't get enough of.)
