@farmerman,
That's true for all conscious life. That quote was also stated in the movie Holy Man with Eddie Murphy but it was in reference to Starfish.

A Man For All Seasons provided me with quotes I have remembered all my life and have thought about often....


William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
William Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!


Sir Thomas More: When a man takes an oath, he's holding his own self in his own hands like water, and if he opens his fingers then, he needn't hope to find himself again.

"I can remember being young and feeling a thing and identifying it as homesickness, and then thinking well now that's odd, isn't it, because I was home, all the time. What on earth are we to make of that?"

One quote I had cause to remember recently :

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." -- George Orwell

@hamilton,
Mine is "Blessed is who expects nothing for he shall not be disappointed" by Ben Franklin.
I love it as I can relate to it since all my expectations have always ended up in bitter disappointment.
