    ...the ultimate result is a man with no goals, no children to carry a name, and someone who is terribly uncoordinated at dancing. Sounds like the life for me.

    On the count of ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... you are now a dancing chicken. SF is really messing with your head, me thinks.

    I got that quote in an email a while back, makes perfect sense to me. Basically: you only get one chance at life, live it to the full no matter what others think.

    I second Lee's comment. We spend way too much time worrying about what other people think of us. Here's another good one: "Exuberance is beauty."—William Blake

    Me thinks Brian's got it!

    The whole quote goes like this:

    “ Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like no one is watching.”
    --- Satchel Paige

    Looks like a great recipe to me, for a life on the edge.

    Here's another that I've been using as a personal motto for a number of yrs:

    "Dress up. Leave a false name. Be legendary." - Hakim Bey

    Full text worth a read:

    (p.s. Why am I converted to "Coda" from "coda" ;)

    I read the above with vague memories of a song flitting in and out of my head. Then I realised what it was, Baz Luhrmann's "Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen" - the lyrics of which are truly inspirational:

    The first one is causing me great financial pain. The last two are words to live by.

    Also consider the permutation found in some advice by Dogbert:

    "Dance like it hurts. Love like you need money. Work when people are watching."

    For those of us without a trust fund...

    Work like hell until 5pm, then go love. Love is work, so consider your budget. Dance & drink madly, but never on week nights.

    work like you don't need the money - eh hem...technically, i don't neeeeeeed the money, i just like having it

    Words to live by! Makes life more fun than:
    Working, only because you need the money - Not loving, for fear of being hurt - or not dancing because your afraid you will look stupid. (who cares, I dont)

    I just read a Dilbert cartoon where Dogbert says, "Dance like it hurts, Love like you need the money, Work when people are watching."
