Harbors, Barbers, Doctors and Walt: Quotes

"Crazy Quotes"
Damien at the Speed of Life (undated - and, for the most part, timeless)

" 'There's always another way to do things and that's your own way.'

" 'Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.'
Mark Twain

" 'Ever wonder if illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?'
John Mendoza...

There's more: Benjamin Franklin on doctors and barbers; Rodney Dangerfield on a second opinion; Aeschylus on words.

Some are funny, some are serious, some are both.

And a few are, I think, top-rate advice. Like this:

" 'Sometimes we reach the boiling point before we realize that the stove is on. Become aware of your feelings – keep your eye on the stove.'
Karen Dougherty

Not all of the quotes include who's supposed - or assumed - to have said or written them. Which I'd rather see, than a list where nifty quotes are attributed so someone - whether or not the person making the list is sure.

One more thing: There's something that's not quite a quote - it is, but it's not the aphorism/one-liner that many others are. It's about what happened to a fellow who was fired for lack of creativity. His name was Walt.
A tip of the hat to rileycentral, on Twitter, for the heads-up on this post.
