    In the weekly e-mails my youth pastor send out to the jr & sr highers, he adds a section called potent quotables. these are little sayings that he's found that range from funny to sincere to patriotic to thought provoking. they are call potent because they were ment to stay with us through out the week...well i thought it was a good idea and i wanted to share it with my OCFF family! they don't have to be qoutes, they can be funny little dialogues or even just a saying that you made up just a while ago...


    i'll start:


    Ganner: "I've heard the Pesktda Xenobotanical Garden is worth seeing."
    Corran: "Yeah, well, don't figure you're going to get time to read all the exhibit signs."
    (Ganner frowns, Jacen smiles.)
    Jacen: "Hey, at least he thinks you can read."
    (Dark Tide II: Ruin)

    The early bird get's the worm, but the second mouse get's the cheese.

    I'm not sure how potent that is, but it's funny.

    Kindness is more important than wisdome and the recognitions of this is the beginning of wisdom.

    He cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love and live.

    How can we ever turn the tide
    If we don't stand tall all as one
    How will we ever reach the sky
    If our dreams go on unsung
    You mess with just one, you mess with us all
    Keep pushing us down, we'll never fall

    -Efrem Schulz
