When life gives you the dirty end of the stick, take the other end and sharpen it.

Did you really just quote an actor/wrestler/rapper in a thread about mindset?

If this is all you have to add you should seriously consider not adding anything in the future.

One of my all time favorites;


Dec.23, 1944 - "Battle of the Bulge"
An entire U.S. armored division is retreating from the Germans in the Ardennes forest when a sergeant in a tank destroyer spotted an American digging a foxhole. The GI, PFC Martin, 325th Glider Infantry Regiment, looked up and asked, "Are you looking for a safe place?" "Yeah," answered the tanker.

"Well, buddy," he drawled, "Just pull your vehicle behind me...
I'm the 82nd Airborne, and this is as far as the bastards are going."
