"He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

It is only when you see a mosquito landing on your testicles that you come to realize that there can be value in solving problems without using violence.

The pen is not mightier than the sword. The pen does not win battles, nor does the sword write poetry. Mighty is the hand which knows when to pick the pen and when to pick the sword.

Just a randomized thought but I'm thinking to myself todays going to be a good day to forge.  Got a break in between rain systems so its going to be dry.  Sadly my other torch head was busted so I had to get a new one this morning.  But yep as soon as it warms up more outside I'm going to go light the forge.  I gotta try out these new tongs.  So I thought  I think I'll do some forging today lol.

Better to have something and not need it than need something and not have it!!!

I have to disagree with that :lol:. Better save money for stuff you will need than have a bunch of unused tools and empty pockets.

Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

I asked my Master, "You teach me how to fight, yet you speak of peace. Why is this?"

He replied "It is better to be a warrior in a garden, then a gardener in war."

(Dont remember where i heard this one...)

Judge a mans character by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

If you ever DECIDE to get a tattoo.  MAKE SURE, it's in an APPROPRIATE place and POSITIVELY make sure it's something you want.  (Learned that lesson the hard way I'm going through tattoo removal.)

That sounds like a good story :)

Lmao yep one of those young and dumb kind of things lol.  And no I’m not going through laser treatment getting it removed with a needle so not as bad but still pretty painful lol.  How ever none the less it’s still an interesting experience.

I have given up all planning ahead. I get uncomfortable with the way they use the word "premeditation" in courtrooms.

A man with a sword may speak of peace............................

A man without a sword may also speak of peace, but he must do so quickly...................;)

I worked alone today... I got stuck inside my head. Sometimes it gets interesting.

I need to lose weight...Some have bigger issues. You ever go all day hungry and whatever you finally eat tastes amazing? Ever wonder how a bowl of rice must taste after going hungry for a week? Does the thought of that make you lose your appetite? 

If you knew you'd die tomorrow; would you be satisfied with what you did yesterday? Did you act in passion or pride? Perhaps the proud ought to be ashamed and maybe the shameful have something to be proud of after all... Just like a man who claims he is wise is foolish and a foolish man who knows it has some wisdom.

Someone said "no one lives on an island". I wonder if we're lost at sea... Riding a current; making wakes. Looking back, did you help anyone who was drowning? Did you help anyone drown? If you had a chance to make it right; would you change your course? And if you made it out alive, to an island; could you live with yourself, or drown just the same?

Just saw this, no worries sir. 

"Brain flatulence" gave me a good laugh :D.

Another for the list:

Artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up.

This is a really cool thread. Years ago, when life started getting REALLY busy, i found myself reminding myself this: if you feel your thoughts sliding over to the lazy area, dont listen to them. Its kept me out of trouble.

Ego is the anaethesia that numbs the pain of stupidity, pride is the burden of a fool.
