Favorite Philosophical Quotes and Sayings.

Philosophical quotes can be a somewhat like a Dear Abbey column. Some of the sayings are excellent advice, some are a bit stuffy, some are pure fun and some give direction in life. Sometimes it is just a catch all section for a little of everything. I hope you find just what you are looking for.
