Good list! My favorites are #23 and 42. But, some of the posters to this thread have quotes that did not make the list, that I like as well.

The year is just over half gone, so I thought I would advise all, that I am already working a new 50 Cloudy nights signature article, to be posted at the end of the year.

Great list, it inspired me to create a new signature as well (and consider this my "submission" for the "v2" contest).

"I have amassed an amazingly large eyepiece collection, and have never once organized it by focal length, apparent field of view or brand. Even Ken Hubal lists me as his emergency contact. I won the 1998 world series of poker…using Messier cards. If we each had a 13mm Ethos, mine would be better than yours. If we traded, mine would still be better than yours. I once auctioned a 10mm Sirius Plossl on Astromart and sold it for $225."

There are a lot of good ones. One of my favorites is: A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it's not open."
