Two variations of translation.
"That's the way we lose our slipping away youth - chasing incorporeal demons of the information through the wires." - by friend.
"Youth is slipping away, during we are driving demons of information through wires." - by me.
Said by Andris Jaunbergs - someone from Latvian University (LU).
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 00:41:00)
"Youth is slipping away, during we are driving unbodily demons of information through wires."
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 00:42:20)
one by Bill Gates
"640k ought to be enough for anybody."
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 01:07:30)
"Stupidity causes cancer, fight IT!"
(Raivis Dejus, also Orvils)
Again from LU.
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 01:30:45)
There are few crazies that own world, other crazies are imprisoned. [Orvil]
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 01:32:22)
It's translation again. If you see any error, correct it. :)
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 01:34:37)
There are few mads that own world, but other are imprisoned. [Orvils]
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 01:48:53)
Some mads own world, but some other mads are imprisoned. [Orvils]
Sorry for so much variations..
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-09-01 02:01:24)

Thomas Tamayo (2007-09-01 13:10:47)
Just came up with this one...

As the days dwindle down.. to a precious few...(Maxwell Anderson, September Song.. or any CC-player)
Don Groves (2007-09-02 00:08:08)
Another one about practice
Rodolfo wrote he saw this on t-shirt: "Practice, practice and practice, I will always beat you." In New York City, a tourist once asked someone how to get to Carnegie Hall (New York's most famous concert hall). The answer: "Practice, practice, practice!"
Thibault de Vassal (2007-09-07 02:44:00)
And the winner is...
Thanks to all, the quotes file will be updated soon... It was a very pleasant and imaginative thread ! .. to be continued ? :)
Rodolfo d Ettorre (2007-10-31 01:46:29)
Another one ...
Maybe it is a little late, but I found this one:
The economy depends about as much on economists as the weather does on weather forecasters.
-- Jean-Paul Kauffmann:
Thibault de Vassal (2007-10-31 03:49:28)
It is never late for such quotes :)
Christophe Czekaj (2007-11-08 13:22:33)
a Tarrasch quote
It's not a quote of mine but I found it amusing so ... "The opponent is threatening... nothing. This is the most terrible threat, because it cannot be evaded"
