    Here's my favorite ... got it from the program from the Worcester Memorial Service.

    If Prometheus was worthy of the wrath of Heaven for kindling the first fire upon Earth, how ought all the Gods to honor the men who make it their professional business to put it out?" - John Godfrey Saxe, circa 1850

      From a still un-named member of our contract negotiations team...

      "We'll burn that bridge when we get there."

      ...I think he may have been related to Yogi Berra

        "Our job is to save lives -- as many lives as we can -- at the cost of our own lives if need be. There is no particular logic to the mathematics of this -- and damned little glory. But there is tradition and there is honor and that's enough."

            This one is usually used after someone has cracked up a truck...

            "There are those that have, and those that are gonna do it."

            And of course the one below my signature..

                I have seen 2 quotes recently that hit me.

                "Try to be the man your dog thinks you are"!
                &

                "Pull past the fire building, we can always make a 150' preconnect longer, but the ladder will never be 100' 1" " Chief David Foley, Newbury Fire Department

                  We will take great risks for the life of another.

                  We will take some risks for his property.

                  We will take no risk for what is already lost.

                    It's not whether you win or lose, but how you place the blame.

                    Statistics are like a bikini: What they reveal is interesting, but what they cover is vital.

                    Ever notice how the straight and narrow path gets the most wear along the edges?

                    Worry is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere.

                        Here's two you might like:

                        We the underpaid, are doing the impossible,
                        for the ungrateful.

                        We have been doing so much, with so little, for so long, that we are qualified to do everything with absolutly nothing.

                            Favorite passage in entire Bible:
                            "when thou walkest through the fire,thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." - Isiah 43:2
                            "I hate it when someone says something is impossible, because then I have to go and find a way to do it."
                            Whatever it is, I didn't do it, and I don't know anything about a fire. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
                            Stay safe, boys and girls. It's for keeps out there.

                              kind of irrelevant to firefighting...but its a quote on the wall at my martial arts school, as said by my instructor...

                              "A black-belt is a white-belt who never quit"

                              ...and I keep a piece of my white belt in my pocket to always remember it.
