Quotes of the day [May. 28th, 2002|09:37 am]
Peter Sheil
Another day, another office 100 miles from home and 4 more quotes:-

This is the devilish thing about foreign affairs: they are foreign and will not always conform to our whim.
James Reston

Acquaintance, n.: A person whom we know well enough to borrow from, but not well enough to lend to.
Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914), The Devil's Dictionary

I'm not worried about the bullet with my name on it... just the thousands out there marked 'Occupant.'
Unknown

The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
William James (1842 - 1910)

I particularly like that last one - maybe there is a point to all the futility we have to go through day in, day out.

*thoughtful*

User: No, but I think I have a copy on my hard disk.

*big grin*
unfortunately the user concerned is specifying a system upgrade :(((
