What is one of your favorite quotes?

I have two.  The first is by Winston Churchill, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” It is an example of how to live your life.

The second is by Thomas Hobbes, “Life is nasty, brutish and short.”  It is an example of how wrong people can be about life.
