Favorite Presidential Quotes

Since it is Presidents Day – I thought I would share some of my favorite presidential quotes.

George Washington:

Worry is the interest paid by those who borrow trouble.

Abraham Lincoln:

Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.

Lyndon Baines Johnson:

Any jackass can kick down a barn but it takes a good carpenter to build one.

Quality Quote of the Day…

My friend Demitrious passed me a link today to someone’s blog post – and after a long day…I needed a good laugh. I have had similar thoughts, but was never able to articulate it like this:

– Hey Google? I have a bug to report… I checked my calendar, and it SAYS this is 2007… Are you SURE? Cause I really, really feel like I’m in 1999 right now…

*For those non-developer readers out there, this is something you would say when you are talking to someone who is stuck in the past with development styles and terminology.

A Great Quote

I heard a great quote last night that I want to share:

It is nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
