Quote of the day


Doug Lester

Recommended Posts

This is from A. C. de Lisle's signature line as noted on myarmoury.com:

 

Never tell a hammerer that it's the hammer doing all the work. They have views on that sort of nonsense; the kind of views that also involve your kneecaps.

HELP...I'm a twenty year old trapped in the body of an old man!!!

It's not my quote, but i saw in on a Steampunk forum, and it's perfect for here:

"Do not meddle in the affairs of mad scientists, for you are highly conductive and easy to attatch electrodes to."

I had a strange thought the other day.

If I were locked in a room with a copy of myself, i wouldn't like me very much.

"Pardon me good Sir; I'm afraid i may have inadvertantly licked your fingers."

I had a strange thought the other day.

On the pig pen at the stable where I work, there is a sign that reads:

 

Never try to teach a pig to sing, it wastes your time and annoies the pig.

 

Ben,

 

who doesn't care for farm animals who try to eat you

Ben Potter Bladesmith

 

 

It's not that I would trade my lot

Or any other man's,

Nor that I will be ashamed

Of my work torn hands-

 

For I have chosen the path I tread

Knowing it would be steep,

And I will take the joys thereof

And the consequences reap.

"...be not a shoemaker nor yet a spear maker

save for thyself alone:

let the shoe be misshapen, or crooked the shaft,

and a curse on thy head will be called."

A couple of my favorites.

 

"A pipe gives a wise man time to think, and a fool something to stick in his mouth."

 

"Never argue with an idiot, people might not be able to tell which is which."

"The worst day smithing is better than the best day working for someone else."

 

I said that.

 

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

I'll add this one for now

 

"If the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail."

Having watched government for some time, it has become obvious that our government is no longer for the people. If the current trend continues, it won't be long untill armed rebellion is required.

Here's a good one:

 

"When I raise my flashing sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance upon mine enemies, and I will repay those who haze me. Oh, Lord, raise me to Thy right hand and count me among Thy saints."

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going,"

Cliché I know, but hearing it today from a WWII Marine, it didn't seem so.

 

"Old solders never die, they just fade away”

Thanks to all you vets out there, we owe you a great debt,

Ben,

who’s hat is off to all those who put their lives on the line for those of us at home.
