    Hospitality is the ability to make someone feel at home when you wish they were

    At the centre of your being you have the answer; You know who you are and you
    know what you want.

    The quote (from my sig) that somes up my views perfectly:

    "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." Good old Dumbledore

    "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"
    Ghandi - two wrongs don't make a right people

    Something like " A man who hasn't found something to die for isn't fit to live" Martin Luther King

    "Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less travelled by." Robert Frost. An important lesson there I think.

    For when I feel optimistic:
    "Everything is okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end."

    "Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude." Random clever quote from The Jam there soz!

    "A true friend sees the hurt in your eyes when everyone else believes your smile" unknown

    U2 "Walk On" and "Sometimes you can't make it on your own" lyrics. Too long to type.

    'One death is a tragedy, one million deaths is a statistic' Joseph Stalin
    sounds harsh but is so true

    Another one from Stalin
    'When we hang the capitalists they will sell us the rope we use'

    How about some from Lenin
    'A lie told often enough becomes the truth'
    'Communism is Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country'
    'Capitalists are no more capable of self-sacrifice than a man is capable of lifting himself up by his own bootstraps'

    I like communism. A lot.
