SCOTT ADAMS (and his ever-useful DOGBERT DISMISSAL):
DOGBERT: "From now on, I will not try to reason with the idiots I encounter. I will dismiss them by waving my paw and saying, 'Bah.'"
DILBERT: "Just because someone thinks differently from you doesn't mean he's an idiot, Dogbert."
DOGBERT: (waving paw) "Bah."

TAO TE CHING:
"Do you want to be a positive influence in the world?  First, get your own life in order."

THOMAS JEFFERSON:
"Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others."

RUSH LIMBAUGH:
"See, I told you so."

LESLIE MUŅOZ:
"People who mind other people's business do not have good enough business of their own to mind."

MIKE MYERS (portraying Dieter on the recurring Saturday Night Live skit Sprockets):
"Your story has become tiresome, and this is the time that we dance."

AYN RAND (and her ultimate method for handling mystics, welfare statists, and other frauds):
"We have no demands to present to you, no bargains to strike, no compromise to reach. You have nothing to offer us. We do not need you." - the heroic John Galt in ATLAS SHRUGGED

PETER SENGE:
"Trusting people to be creative and constructive when given more freedom does not imply an overly optimistic belief in the perfectibility of human nature. It is, rather, belief that the inevitable errors and sins of the human condition are far better overcome by individuals working together in an environment of trust and freedom and mutual respect than by individuals working under a multitude of rules, regulations, and restraints imposed upon them by another group of imperfect individuals."

ALFRED LORD TENNYSON:
"Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control,
These three alone lead to sovereign power."

WALT WHITMAN:
"And nothing, not God, is greater to one than one's self is."

LIN YUTANG
"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of nonessentials."
