One of my favs is probably also the inspiration for the SAK and all Multitools, most CCWs and all the "BUG OUT BAGS" I've seen on Youtube...
"Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it"
My absolute favorite quote is a Heinlein truism: "With the possible exception of a knife and a good pair of boots a man carries everything he needs between his ears!"
The one I learned from my dad is: "Knowing something ain't the same as doing something. Knowledge is no substitute for action".
This one's my own: "Gold, Guns, Groceries and Guts or Slavery...Your Choice"
So's this one: "To enjoy Summer be ready for Winter".
and This one:
"To live in peace,
To walk in beauty,
My gun is loaded,
My larder full,
My soul my own."
Okay not a slogan. I'm still working on it. I may make a decent haiku out of it yet. Still lacks a bit of impact but I like it.
PS: Here's an Idea why don't we have a "Survival Haiku" Contest. I'll donate a new Gerber Profile Knife for a prize. No limericks and such. Must be somewhat like real haiku or haikuesque based on or around Survival/surviving. There is no exact way to transliterate true Japanese haiku to English so to prevent misunderstandings the haiku must consist of 3 or 5 lines with each line no less than two or more than five words. Moderators to judge....
