    So... if any member@ccc hear of good quotations, please add on to this thread.

    Did Muhammad Ali, a great sportsman, say that?

    We see how much passion in life and in sport from his saying.

    It's a great quotation by Benjamin Franklin. A very wise man, he was.

    The "not speak all he knows"; I suppose he was saying "only answer to what is required from question asked"; Any extra info is unnecessary.

    The "not judge all he sees"; I suppose he was saying "who am I to judge others opinion(s)?"; Everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion(s).

    Anyone can be a good winner.
    The sign of a great man is how you handle defeat.

    Thanks. The original was "Just Play. Have Fun. Enjoy the Game."

    Sorry, I shortened the original.

    Hmmm.... I don't know. I can 'imagine' quite a bit (to paraphrase that other great philosopher and nature lover, Han Solo).

    Only an ascetic can afford to live the life they imagine. ("A treehouse and cold gruel? What bliss!")
    The rest of us greedy sods probably have dream-lives that would take more $$ than we are ever likely to earn, borrow or steal.

    ^ .... or you can live the life you never imagined

    Here's one from a great philosopher and among other things, musician. Can you name him without having to cheat with google?

    "The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows."
