Craig Ferguson

The Highlanders

Well we're from the Scottish Highlands
where it's rainy and cold
Our smiles are polite but our music is bold
Going straight to Craig Ferguson from LAX
Ridin' in style in our new Ford Flex
We are the Highlanderz, mighty and strong
Packin' so much heat that our kilts are extra long
We are the Highlanderz, mighty and strong
Blowin' people's minds when we sing our favorite song.

Leon Tolstoy

  • I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.

Robert E. Lee

Definition of a Gentleman

The forbearing use of power does not only form a touchstone, but the manner in which an individual enjoys certain advantages over others is a test of a true gentleman.

The power which the strong have over the weak, the employer over the employed, the educated over the unlettered, the experienced over the confiding, even the clever over the silly--the forbearing or inoffensive use of all this power or authority, or a total abstinence from it when the case admits it, will show the gentleman in a plain light

The gentleman does not needlessly and unnecessarily remind an offender of a wrong he may have committed against him. He cannot only forgive, he can forget; and he strives for that nobleness of self and mildness of character which impart sufficient strength to let the past be but the past. A true man of honor feels humbled himself when he cannot help humbling others.

Siddartha

  • Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held.
  • Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin.
  • Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.

Sir Winston Churchill

  • Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.
  • It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.

Unknow

  • It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

WTP

  • People who don't Think probably don't have Brains; rather, they have grey fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake.”
