    One of my favorite Jack Handy quotes.

    I've never been inspired by a poster, but off the top of my head how 'bout:

    Failure finds the one who quit. Success if found by those who strive.
    I prefer: "The overall mortality rate is 100%, so give up now."

    Besides, didn't Yoda teach us all that we shouldn't try?

    Reminds me of one of my favorite sayings:

    Before you get married, remember that 50% of all marriages end up lasting your entire life.

    fear profits a man nothing.

    a man caught without his spear deserves his fate.

    if you have a shortage of mischief, get a goat.

    without chance, there is no life.

    mortality is the fate of all immortals.

    It's not snarky, but my daughter liked this one from me:

    "It's all right to have butterflies in your stomach. Just get them to fly in formation."

    We send quotes back and forth now. She makes big posters with them.

    If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

The first is to pronounce danger with a hard g, making it rhyme with anger. The second is to say, "so is hanger." I suppose this would be meaningful to Joan Crawford, but no one else.

    So far, I've only come up with one saying on my own: "Courage always ends in rage." While this is demonstrably true, most people I mention this to begin backing away slowly.

    That's where I stand at the moment.
    I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.

    How about attempting to do nothing and failing?

    I figure it's like Douglas Adams' idea of throwing yourself at the ground and missing.

    Everything happens for a reason. Usually the reason is that you did something stupid.
