  2. "I know nothing" ~ Sgt Schultz

  3. One of my favorites is Bruce Lee's. A take off on Ayn Rand.

  4. I can agree with the "expectations" quote too, RN. Not with the sentiment that says helping others so we all do better is bad, however. My point being I agree and am not a Objectivist or Libertarian. Seems Libertarians like that quote - but was Bruce Lee either of those things?
