Jimmy Buffett

Woody Allen (1935 - )

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the word you first thought of.

It's great to have you and your quotes back! I've been missing both!

Hitchcock was a very astute observer and I'd have to rate that quote the highest. The italian proverb is great and I have to agree with Burt Bacharach - I've done that myself at times!
