THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 02-13-09)

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks … It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.
–Samuel Adams

The time will come when winter will ask what you were doing all summer.
–Henry Clay, The Great Compromiser

Many do with opportunities as children do at the seashore; they fill their little hands with sand, and then let the grains fall through, one by one, till all are gone.
–Thomas Jones

I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult…I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.
–Og Mandino, author

The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.
–Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Basically, I no longer work for anything but the sensation I have while working.
–Albert Giacometti (sculptor)

There’s a limit to how many times you can read how great you are and what an inspiration you are, but I’m not there yet.
