Can I Quote You On That?

Every Saturday this month, I am going to throw out some of my very favorite quotes. I love quotes so much that I keep track of my favorites in my Palm - it is sort of a hobby, I suppose. Collecting the words of others.

Today's quotes are inspired by a situation a friend has faced this week where her so-called friends have been acting like Big Weinies.

-Mark Twain

Live so that your friends can defend you but never have to.
-Arnold H. Glasgow

-Jerzy Lec Stanislaw

If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don't have integrity, nothing else matters.
-Alan Simpson
