Quotes of the Day [Jul. 13th, 2004|11:37 am]
Peter Sheil
The first two are very aposite, and funny :)
Life is just one damned thing after another.
Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)

The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers.
Lewis Thomas (1913 - 1993)

No degree of dullness can safeguard a work against the determination of critics to find it fascinating.
Harold Rosenberg

Failure is not the only punishment for laziness; there is also the success of others.
Jules Renard (1864 - 1910)
To my mind, the punishment of the diligent is the success of the lazy.
Despite the hard work of the others, indeed sometimes because of that,
they claim undeserved credit. How often have you seen that?
