Those thinkers in whom all stars move in cyclic orbits are not the most profound: whoever looks into himself as into vast space and carries galaxies in himself also knows how irregular all galaxies are; they lead into the chaos and labyrinth of existence. 

-- Friedrich Nietzsche

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...  I want to achieve it through not dying. 
-- Woody Allen


Pain is temporary.  It may last a minute, or an hour,
or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and
something else will take its place.  
If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
        -- Lance Armstrong

(And for the Lance skeptics...)
