    When in doubt, observe and ask questions. When certain, observe at length and ask many more questions.

    Re: favorite quote

    There are three that I prefer...the first one is:

    'Courage is what it takes to stand up and talk, but courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.' ~Winston Churchill

    and ...

    'If you cannot laugh at life then why live it'...this is my personal quote!

    and finally...

    'Fake it until you make it' - a 7th Degree Master of the Martial Arts. (name withheld for obvious reasons)

    "There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. "
