It's one of my favorites, too, but I believe the wording is:

 

"Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

FYI - the "wisdom" sayings from insanescouter are from the book of Proverbs in the Bible. (several different chapters) It is worth investigating for short SM minutes, and shouldn't offend many people's religious preferences - if any. The Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths would all accept these words.

Here are a few I have written down over the years:

- Don't sit around and wait for it to be a good day - go out and make it a good day. Hazel Jones.

 

- The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do Unknown

 

- Listen to the sound of the river and you will catch fish - Irish Proverb

 

- When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened of us. Helen Keller (1880-1968)

 

- only the lead sled dog has a good view. Unknown

 

- He who is good at making excuses is seldom good at anything else. Ben Franklin (1706-1790)

 

- Half the battle is getting started Colin S.K. Walker

- The old owner of the 76ers was asked why he decided to sell the team "Because Pat Croce called me 50 times."

Most of these are from a little booklet our office gets once a week or every other week. I think it is call Bits and Pieces.

Kevin Eikenberry's Powerquotes are another good source, e-mailed to your computer every day. I cut and paste the good ones into a Word document that squirts into my Palm pilot whenever I sync it up. Do a google search and you'll find the site...

The only difference between this place and the Titantic is they had a band.

 

Misc:

No plan ever survived contact.

 

If your parents didn't have children odds are you won't either.

 

One of favorites:

 

Remember this, foolish mortals, when ye stare headlong into the mind-paralyzing void, the inky black nothingness of existence, the he--ish yawning maw of the abyss--it's pretty d--n dark, so give it a few minutes for your eyes to adjust.
