Come on people I get videos of inspiring stuff sent to me by Scarlet supporters.....can you share words that inspire you ....just asking ...

I will give a short one from my boyhood hero Carl Sagan " We are all made of starstuff ".

Superb.


In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

Well Lofty ever since I went to see Dafydd Iwan in a barn somewhere in deepest Nantgaredig probably 40 years ago I have always had a huge positive reaction when I hear Yma o hyd. It always has and always will move me. 

As a side note the warm up act that night in Nantgaredig was a very young comic called Nigel Owen - mam fach happy days.

Forgive me for this but this poem by Charles bukowski...is my personal motivational poem..saved me in so many ways...just thought I'd share.

Your life is your life don't let it be clubbed into dank submission. 
Be on the watch
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere. 
It may not be much light but it beats the darkness.
Be on the watch.
The gods will offer you chances.
Know them.
Take them.
You can't beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes. 
And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be.
Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.
You are marvellous the gods wait to delight in you.

Interesting topic, Lofty - have you read any of Bukowski's novels? I liked 'Post Office' and 'Ham on Rye'.

In response to your request - I have many favourites, but for now I'll offer these:

"He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how." - Friedrich Nietzsche

"I can resist anything except temptation" - Oscar Wilde

and for the Physicists amongst us:

"Housekeeping is nothing more than a losing encounter with entropy." Claire Oshetsky
“You cannot reason a man out of what he never reasoned himself into.” (Jonathan Swift)

" When you know within yourself there is something you want to do and I believe that all of us were born with a purpose, that all of us have something we are supposed to do.
And all of us have some goodness within us and that goodness gives us a responsibility to manifest our greatness.
Not only is it possible for you to have your dream, but it's necessary, it's necessary for you to have it, that you work on it , that you develop yourself, that you go for what is yours in the Universe".

Les Brown.

African proverb

" If there's no enemy within, then the enemy outside can do you no harm"

Actually love this.

"The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made." - Groucho Marx.

I still think this is brilliant and very appropriate for much of our society, unfortunately. I think about it most days listening to politicians, bosses, anyone on TV really.

Plus, in terms of physics quotes, how about Oppenheimer "Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds". 

Brutal. Although I think was originally a Hindu saying? I doubt about the same topic.
