"The only telemarketers that I have encountered who don't take you off of their list are the ones running a scam. Next time, answer the phone play like your interested and get some info on whomever is calling you. If they seem…"
"As far as the cigarettes go, lose them. There are other ways to get nicotine. Even if you chew a million packs of nicotine gum, or use chewing tobacco or "pack lip"(all of the tobacco options still have cancer risks), at least you…"
"I have worked as a lifeguard for 7 years(last day is today actually), and the one thing I will definitely say is, do not get board shorts if you have any intention of actually swimming. My favorite suite is a pair of swimming…"
"I generally avoid ripped jeans, and I would never recommend buying a pair of ripped jeans. If they are an old pair of jeans that you happened to have ripped, I would wear them to something that will have an activity, a bar-b-que where you know…"

There are way too many great quotes to pick just one. I'm somewhat of a quote collector, and I pull them out all the time. For some reason, when the great Men and Women of History say something people give it more attention. But there is one quote I use the most. I might even say it's my favorite.

"Sorry Prescott I didn't mean to downplay your issues.
I echo a lot of what the guys are saying here. Friendship comes first and you need to sit him down and tell him how you feel and what you are seeing. And if it is making you uncomfortable…"
""Two of my only true friends"....its hard but take a look at your life and expand your social circle...this is a bigger issue than your question. What happens when they break up and you potentially lose both of them?"
