Albert said this referring to our theories and understanding of the nature of the universe

but it also applies to engineering and system design

and I use it as my basis for how a motorcycle should be designed and assembled:

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler. -Albert Einstein

A couple by my favorite founding father ..... BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

What ever is begun in anger, ends in shame.

One of the best Commanding Officers I served with in the Navy had this quote engraved on a brass plaque and put on his cabin door.
“YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU TOLERATE”

A positive attitude will not solve all your problems, But it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. Herm Albright.

The problem with DECEPTION is that you don’t know you’re in it when you’re IN it.

General George S. Patton may have had a "colorful" image to say the least. However, he has had some great quotes that have made an influence in my life.

Quote:
The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decison. That's the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision, turn off all fears and go ahead!
Quote:
Better to fight for something than live for nothing.
Quote:
Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.
Quote:
If a man does his best, what else is there?

No matter what you ride. Just ride!

“It’s better to be silent and be thought a FOOL than to speak and leave no doubt”

“The first step to wisdom is to realize that we are ignorant.”

“A man is known by the company he keeps.”
