Never settle for anything less that extraordinary or else life will
suck. It might
suck anyway, but it's better to suck with
integrity.

The W.C. Fields quote remined me of the one that goes as follows:

Doctor: Young lady, you are very ill. You'll need to give up booze, overeating, staying up late at night and cigars.

Pretty young thing: But, Doctor, I don't drink, I watch what I eat, I go to sleep early each night and I don't smoke cigars.

W.C. Fields comments: Poor dear, she was like a ship sinking with no ballast to throw overboard.

Winston Churchill's commencement speech delivered to a post-war graduating class at Oxford University. The shortest commencement address in history.

Each line was delivered with a more vociferous emphasis than the line before, and as he walked off the podium after delivering the third line, the audience lept to their feet as one in thunderous applause:

--------------

"Never give up."

"Never Give Up!"

"NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

--------------

Yelled out by a visiting young monk who unknowingly followed a crowd to the Coliseum in ancient Rome, wondering what all the ruckus was about.

When two gladiators began to fight to the death, he jumped down into the arena and ran between them, crying -

"STOP THIS MADNESS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!"

The two gladiators that he was attempting to fend off each other both ran him through with their swords in the midst of their bloodlust.

In shock after realizing what they had done, the gladiators dropped their swords while staring at the monk's fallen body in shock. They then stepped back and looked up at Caesar, and the crowd.

One by one, starting with the oldest, spectators rose from their seats in silence, and left. Eventually Caesar did the same, and the Coliseum emptied out.

There was never another gladiatorial combat ever held in the Coliseum...
