Quote of the day

#2381 by oberder » Wed Jan 27, 2016 12:53

:mrgreen: Time for my semi-obligatory double quoting:

"People are impatient.
They want things to happen overnight,
and have no idea of the circumstances
and situations that can surround an individual at times.
"
-- Rohit Sharma

"Patience is the support of weakness; impatience the ruin of strength."
-- Charles Caleb Colton

This seems to be the most repeated quote on this topic ;)

The federal government spends millions to run the Postal Service. I could lose your mail for half of that.

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.

I wish I could quote the whole book, but I'll restrain myself to two paragraphs.

Quote:
Six-thirty was clearly a preposterous time and he, the client, obviously hadn't meant it seriously. A civilised six-thirty for twelve noon was almost certainly what he had in mind, and if he wanted to cut up rough about it, Dirk would have no option but to start handing out some serious statistics. Nobody got murdered before lunch. But nobody. People weren't up to it. You needed a good lunch to get both the blood-sugar and bloodlust levels up. Dirk had the figures to prove it.

Did he, Anstey (the client's name was Anstey, an odd, intense man in his mid-thirties with staring eyes, a narrow yellow tie and one of the big houses in Lupton Road; Dirk hadn't actually liked him very much and thought he looked as if he was trying to swallow a fish), did he know that 67 per cent of all known murderers, who expressed a preference, had had liver and bacon for lunch? And that another 22 per cent had been torn between either a prawn biryani or an omelette? That dispensed with 89 per cent of the threat at a stroke, and by the time you had further discounted the salad eaters and the turkey and ham sandwich munchers and started to look at the number of people who would contemplate such a course of action without any lunch at all, then you were well into the realms of negligibility and bordering on fantasy

Barely needs a citation. Who else could it be?
