                        QUOTE A DAY
          "Words That Inspire, Provoke and Entertain"
                    Tuesday April 15, 2008
-----------------------------------------------------------

  Greetings fellow quote lovers:

[Email from a reader that made sense to me...]

  THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' GAS FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT 
  WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $1.30 
  PER GALLON. 
 
  This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came 
  from one of his engineer buddies who retired from 
  Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas prices going 
  up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take 
  time to read this please. 

  Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea

  This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy gas on 
  a certain day' campaign that was going around last 
  April or May! It's worth your consideration. Join the 
  resistance!!!! 

  I hear we are going to hit close to $ 4.00 a gallon by 
  summer and it might go higher!!  Want gasoline prices 
  to come down? 
 
  We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil 
  companies just laughed at that because they knew we 
  wouldn't continue to 'hurt' ourselves by refusing to 
  buy gas. 

  How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop 
  buying gas.

  But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act 
  together to force a price war.

  Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T 
  purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies 
  (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.

  If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined 
  to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, 
  the other companies will have to follow suit.

  But to have an impact, we need to reach literally 
  millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers.  It's really 
  simple to do!  Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...
  keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach 
  millions of people! 

  I am sending this note to 30 people.  If each of us send 
  it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ..  and those 
  300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)...
  and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth 
  group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION 
  consumers. 

  If those three million get excited and pass this on to 
  ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been 
  contacted! 

  If it goes one level further, you guessed it... 
  300 million folks!

  Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. 
  That's all. 
  
  How long would all that take?  If each of us sends this 
  e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, 
  all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted 
  within the next 8 days!!!

  I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much 
  potential, did you! Acting together we can make a 
  difference. 
----------------

  If this makes sense to you, please pass this message 
  on. 20,000 QAD readers are getting this. I suggest that 
  we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES 
  TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY 
  WORK. 

 Best,

 JA

 The thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all,

 --Lorraine Hansberry

 People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking
 for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions,
 even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that
 plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever
 needed to search was within.
