“If the same amount of energy that was spent studying the female bosom went into the space program, we would now be operating hot dog stands on the moon.” — D.W.B.

Pardon him, Theodotus; he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.
— George Bernard Shaw; Caesar and Cleopatra

This should be taken to heart by everyone, no matter what they do or where they come from. I know far too many people who simply can’t imagine anything but their way. Sometimes, when I catch myself thinking this way, I have to step back and consider if I am acting like a barbarian.

Random Quote #4

I don’t know why I like this little verse. Maybe a shrink could tell me…

If I don’t drive around the park,
I’m pretty sure to make my mark.
If I’m in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again.
If I abstain from fun and such
I’ll probably amount to much;
But I shall stay the way I am,
because I do not give a damn.
–Dorothy Parker
