Quotes of the Day

Another good set today - although maybe not all of you will agree with the generalisation applied to all Americans in the fourth one. Numbers 2 and 3 are ones we all should try and follow.

It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail.
Gore Vidal (1925 - )

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself - and you are the easiest person to fool.
Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)

A good listener is a good talker with a sore throat.
Katharine Whitehorn

I loathe the expression "What makes him tick." It is the American mind, looking for simple and singular solution, that uses the foolish expression. A person not only ticks, he also chimes and strikes the hour, falls and breaks and has to be put together again, and sometimes stops like an electric clock in a thunderstorm.
James Thurber (1894 - 1961)
