And one of my all time favorites......................
 
 
 
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
-Robert A. Heinlein

I have one:

"Take your child hunting when he is young, and you won't need to go hunting for him when he's older."


Good one! Liked the gun control one too!

Woods: LOL! Love the twist to the fish one. [:D]

Excellent. Which of his works was that from, or was it a general quote?

My Favorite. Written by my wife for her masters degree class in collage. " The birth of my child is my chance to live on after I'm gone "

Not related to Hunting in any way I know but my favorite.

Never heard that one before. That one is pretty good. Yogi had some pretty good zingers.
