    Okay bookworms!

    What's your favorite BB books?
    Mine are:

    Training - The Poliquin Principals by Charles Poliquin

    Diet and Nutrition - The Zone by Barry Sears (it was the first and so far most useful in my small collection of books on this subject)

    Inspiration - Body For Life by Bill Phillips (sure, he's a b@stard and I don't particularly like his methods, but he sure knows how to make someone feel motivated)

    Deadlifts are like women, they'll hurt you everytime, but they'll also make you a man. - Me

    Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey:

    I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

    Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

    PowermanDL on Russian culture: "Big furry hats come into play somewhere."

    "The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." --Thomas Paine
