    “You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

    "CPC, CPC from Alpha XX.X (edited ;) ), negative move." Almost every shift, when some :censored: mistakes the ambulance for a taxi with amber lights.

    "So many :censored: and so few bullets" - Ford Fairlane, "The adventures of Ford Fairlane", probably not verbatim, but that's the spirit of the sentence.

    Treating Major Trauma (from EMT-Basic Training) - "Air goes in and out, blood goes round and round, and anything else is a bad thing. Help them breathe, plug the leaks, and GO TO THE HOSPITAL! Nothing else is going to fix the problem!"

    If you break that rule, the ABCs go from "Airway, Breathing, Circulation" to "Airway, Bury 'em, Call a Florist".

    Common sense isn't common - it's a learned behavior.

    Do unto others, then run :)

    this might be a repeat, but here goes.

    God helps those who help themselves, God help those who get caught helping themselves.

    No plan ever survives first contact with the enemy.

    I don't know who said it but truer words were never spoken!

    That was probably an old, old saying Sun Tzu's time already. :) But thinking positively, neither does the enemy's plan.

    A random collection:

    - A wise man washes his hands after he pees. A wiser man doesn't pee on his hands.

    - Remember: 'i' before 'e', except in Budweiser.

    - Don't judge a book by its movie.

    In an interview of Marina Silva yesterday she was asked if she is an optimist or a pessimist. She simply replied she is persistent.
