This was done in the past, but things change. What is the origin of your signature line, or lines? The Juvenal quote means literally "Who guards the guardians themselves?" Or: Who polices the police? WHo governs the government? etc. ..... The Heinlein quote is my personal favorite of his. The quotes from me are just common sense in a senseless world.....

I change mine fairly often: sometimes something almost witty, sometimes something meaningful, and sometimes something pretty idiotic. Today's sig line is a quote from [i]Fight Club[/i], when Tyler asks Jack what celebrity he'd like to fight.

Because I care enough to give the very best.

I've changed mine several times. The current is my favorite and has generated the most "attaboys". Cheers

I've always wondered why no one bothered to ask about mine, but it's been the source of many of my allusions to 'our house is on fire' and 'our houses are burning' in my posts. The lines come from American Poet, John Pierpoint in - [b]Warren's Address to the American Soldiers, Before the Battle of Bunker Hill[/b] STAND! the ground's your own, my braves! Will you give it up to slaves? Will ye look for greener graves? Hope ye mercy still? What's the mercy despots feel! Hear it in the battle peal! Read it on yon bristling steel! Ask it--ye who will. Fear ye foes who kill for hire! Will ye to your homes retire? Look behind you! they're afire! And, before you, see Who have done it!--From the vale On they come!--and will ye quail?-- Leaden rain and iron hail Let their welcome be! In the God of battles trust! Die we may--and die we must:-- But, O, where can dust to dust Be consign'd so well, As where heaven its dews shall shed On the martyr'd patriot's bed, And the rocks shall raise their head, Of his deeds to tell! by John Pierpoint One of the oldest Revolutionary War poems! Eric The(Apropos,Right?)Hun[>]:)]

Victory, or Death. If it is worth fighting over it, it is worth killing or dying over it.

Mine came from Futurama, where they had to kill the penquins because there were way to many of them. The old fisherman handed Layla a rifle and said, "This is an ol' fashion gun, simple point and click interface." Being a IT guy, it really struck me as funny.

From the book Blackhawk Down. When the 50 gunner was getting shot at.

Here's an obscure one: G.F. Handel, Alexander's Feast, or The Power of Musick (1736) Ode in Honour of St. Ceclilia Text by John Dryden/Newburgh Hamilton Part II Revenge, revenge, Timotheus cries; See the Furies arise! See the snakes that they rear, How they hiss in their hair, And the sparkles that flash in their eyes! Behold, a ghastly band, Each a torch in his hand! Those are Greacian ghosts, that in battle were slain, And unburied remain Inglorious on the plain. Revenge, revenge, Timotheus cries; See the Furies arise! See the snakes that they rear, How they hiss in their hair, And the sparkles that flash in their eyes! Of course, this may change at any time ... I don't believe I've yet discovered the 'perfect' one for me.

I chose mine because settal new worlds, and expanding human civilization to new frontiers is the single greatest event in human history. It must be prused and it must be made to happen. Whithout chalenges civilization stagnate, colonizing the planets is the challenge of our time.

Mine comes from Bruce Campbell in "Army of Darkness." The third movie in the "Evil Dead" series

Mine comes from general daily usage.. or when you want someone to submit to you in a wrestling match :)

Mine is a quote from "They Live", uttered by none other than Rowdy Roddy Piper. It also showed up in the Duke Nuke'em 3D video game.

Mine is an actual bumper sticker that I bought at Knob Creek. Reason being, I drive in rush hour traffic twice a day on I-75 in Ohio surrounded by mindless drones who have no business posessing a license or even breathing my air because they can't think to check a mirror before a lane change because god forbid that they would miss a second of conversation on their freakin cell phone or why in the hell should they speed up over 45 MPH just because they're in the hammer lane jerkin their pud to some Bjork tune and they got a soccer ball sticker in the rear window of their Windstar because they need to be stabbed in the neck with the lid from a sardine can and have their flippin corneas burnt out with a butane lighter AAAAAARRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH. Anyways, I thought that it was funny. Chuck

The firearm gives man a power only gods can claim. The ability to reach out your hand and strike an foe at a distance with a thunderbolt. Shiva is the goddess of life and death. Her dance is the eternal wheel of life and death. My signature line is a quote from an ancient Hindu text. When the first atomic bomb was detonated one of the men who created it spoke these words after witnessing the blast.

Mine, most generally comes from the music I listen too. I'll hear something in a song and say, HEY! that's a damn good quote! My previous was from Pantera "Be yourself, By yourself, Stay away from me!" The new one is easy!
