I'm dumping this quote. It came off a Warsteiner label:

Quote:
"...life is too short to drink cheap beer."
Why am I dumping it? Because the morons at Duke drink Natural Light without any regard for the transience of physical existence, and this quote only makes me sad anyway. Germany is far away now.

Nev, I'm pretty sure I saw your old fairy in the archives on http://www.amybrownart.com - they moved it off the main site.

Well, here are my past signatures, or quotes, the one's that I can remember at least....

"Not all who wander are lost"
- J. R. R. Tolkien

"There is nothing more depressing than having everything and still feeling sad"
- Annonymous

"I am at an age were if someone tells me to wear socks, I don't have to"
- Einstein

"Why is it that nobody understands me and yet everybody likes me?"
- Einstein

"Its been a long road, getting from there to here, its been a long time, but my time is finaly near"
- Star Trek: Enterprise Theme Song

Lord of the Rings (Star Trek Style)
Three commbadges for the Vulcan-Masters under the sky,
Seven for the Klingon-Warriors in their Star-Ships of wrath,
Nine for brave Comanders doomed to die,
One for the Borg Queen on her destructive path,
In the Delta Quadrant where the shadows lie.
One commbadge to protect them all.
One commbadge to guide them.
One commbadge to hail them all and in the Universe bind them,
In the Delta Quadrant where the shadows lie.

Actually, a couple of those were not past signatures, I just thought that I would put up one or two interesting quotes.

Here I lay to rest a quote that is too long for my sig, and I had to get rid of.
Quote:
"Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes. - from Silver Blaze

I hereby lay to rest my old signature that consisted of a greeting and a farewell...I've started a new thing: I'm going to have a quote of the month as my signature. It won't necessarily be Tolkien-related, although the 1st one is...

But: may

"Lissenen ar' maska'lalaith tenna' lye omentuvyn. Amin melon llie!
Melon,
Rachel
ri'
Menelduliniel Vatathra Taraana Melarduin"

rest in peace (FOREVER)!

old sig's.....erm

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places, but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief,it grows perhaps the greater.

thats one of them. And I suppose soon this one will be an old sig, but it isnt yet

When you're all alone in the lands of forever, lay under the Milky Way. On and On, it's getting too late out; I'm not alone this time, this night

I am passing through the same kind of separation anxiety, Rimbaud, but I hope and pray that with a few of the right posts, or rather, lack thereof in my case, that this one will meld almost seamlessly into the Downs world of avatars.

I am off caffeine, now, anyway, and far be it from me to give the wrong impression of my character. My flawless, upstanding, good-looking, intelligent, and talented (I drew it myself!) character.

Avatar: An embodiment; Bodily manifestation

Like our sigs (only more so, because they do not depend on our posts to exist, and they tend to change less often), these little pictures define us to the rest of the community. One can go down a thread and find a specific poster just by looking at the little pictures under the names. Sometimes, the picture even gives us an idea (albeit a false one [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]) of what the poster looks like, because we see it so often. I can look at nothing but the little picture and know who's speaking. It's like having a face to go with the words. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I'm dropping this one off to rest:

"Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice, From what I tasted of desire I hold with those who favour fire."

Then again, I might revive it later on. It fits me too well.

Since becoming a skeleton I've become more philosophical... therefore, I am retiring my "old" quote that just refers to my name:

"Flowers spring as she passes and open if she glances upon them; all birds sing at her coming..."

This one is a little more personal. And I'm surprised at myself, it not being a song lyric, which is the catagory most all of my other "quotes" fall into. It's from an actual BOOK. (shock!)

"If it would help you and if it were possible I would go down with you into Hell: but you cannot bring Hell into me."

There--so sayeth, it exists. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

-'Vana

Edit: Um. I changed it, but nothing happened. I think my sayeth is broken.

Ooh! Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey! I've seen that one!
I would post the link that used to be on my sig before, but sadly, I forgot about this topic when I changed it, so I don't remember it. But here's the general message: SAVE THE TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially since I read somewhere that scientists have said that there are only about 100 tigers still living in the wild of India (I think that was the place).

Okay, my first two signatures.....

1. And they lived happily ever after....at least for a day.
I say that after reading a story to my young girls, so they know realty is not always like that.

2."...'cause it's easier to try than to prove it can't be done".

From a Moody Blues song, "Blue World"

I realize that I don't change mine very often. I've changed quotes once & I've never changed my avatar (I like the little serving lass).
Here's my ex-quote:

For a while, I had:
Night has brought to those who sleep/Only dreams they cannot keep/ I have legends in the deep/Paint the sky with stars
From, of course the wonderful Enya's Paint the Sky with Stars. I changed it now to a quote by the insecure, easily furiated, and extremely hilarious George Costanza from Seinfeld. (best TV show on Earth, by the way.)
I also have entered a doll contest for Miss Middle Earth, and my doll, Laurloth Elhth, is entered for Miss Mithlond. Please vote for her, if you think she is worthy.
