    Re: Great Quotes

    I may have posted this before because it's one of my favorites. For some reason it's been spinning around in my head for a few days.

     

    “Listen to the mustn'ts, child.

    Listen to the don'ts.

    Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.

    Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child.

    Anything can be.”

     

    ~Shel Silverstein

    Re: Great Quotes

    .... and instead of reading for neuroscience I started reading Shel (so a few more!):

     

    “If the track is tough and the hill is rough, THINKING you can just ain't enough!”

     

    “All The Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
    Layin' In The Sun,
    Talkin' 'Bout The Things
    They Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda Done...
    But All Those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
    All Ran Away And Hid
    From One Little Did.”

     

    "How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live 'em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give 'em."

     

    Magic

    "Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
    Eddie touched a troll,
    Laurie danced with witches once,
    Charlie found some goblins gold.
    Donald heard a mermaid sing,
    Susy spied an elf,
    But all the magic I have known
    I've had to make myself."

     

    The Voice

    "There is a voice inside of you
    That whispers all day long,
    "I feel this is right for me,
    I know that this is wrong."
    No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
    Or wise man can decide
    What's right for you--just listen to
    The voice that speaks inside."

    Re: Great Quotes

    Eric, I'll bet N. Armstrong heard from Ken Cooper, David Costill, or an army of folks smarter than those words within days of uttering them.  It was disappointingly stupid for someone with his education.  Someone years ago pointed out that most trained runners decrease their resting pulse close to 20 beats per minute and almost never exercise more than 100 bpm above their pre-running baseline.  Even running hard for an hour daily would cost the runner only 5 hours worth of catch-up beats to their old baseline, and the next 18 hours' margin would be "banked," potentially leading to years of spare heart beats compared to doing nothing.
