    “Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode.
    So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.”

    Lawrence Krauss

    Not exactly snappy and memorable but hey ho

    I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.

    And how has it influenced you?
    Dr Seuss (i think):

    "Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."

    Hasn't really influenced me in anyway (yet), although I like the quote a lot

    "I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird. Love that book.
    The book has some great quotes;

    "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view--until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."

    And some of my own favourites;

    Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without - Buddha
    Then various lyrics from songs etc.

    That is a really good idea! I might start writing down quotations that I happen across from now on.
