Nothing can trouble or upset me, or even seem annoying. Instead of meeting misfortune with groans and tears I will call upon the faculty especially provided to deal with it.

Oh, Lynx! How this quote makes me laugh! I've just been crying over the fact that I won't be able to have the perfect job I want because of hand tremors!

Jason, I'm going to miss your quotes when this site goes down. I'll have to ask Lynx how to save them. Thanks for taking over for me so long ago.

No problem, I'm glad you enjoy them! Is the site set to go down? If so, approximately when?

There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.
