  1. I fart. What's YOUR super power?

  2. A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things - a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty. -- Jo...

  3. Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum (I think that I think, therefore I think that I am.)

  4. The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously.

  5. Age does not bring wisdom. Often it merely changes simple stupidity into arrogant conceit. Its only advantage, so far as I have been able to see, is that it spans change. A young person sees the world as a still picture, immutable. An old person has had his nose rubbed in changes and more changes and still more changes so many times that he knows it is a moving picture, forever changing. He may not like it — probably doesn’t; I don’t — but he knows it’s so, and knowing it is the first step in...

  6. Nobody has ever seen an electron. Nor a thought. You can't see a thought, you can't measure, weigh, nor taste it- but thoughts are the most real things in the Galaxy.

  7. Progress doesn't come from early risers — progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.

  8. There comes a time in the life of every human when he or she must decide to risk "his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor" on an outcome dubious. Those who fail the challenge are merely overgrown children, can never be anything else.

  9. Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

  10. Democracy can't work. Mathematicians, peasants, and animals, that's all there is — so democracy, a theory based on the assumption that mathematicians and peasants are equal, can never work. Wisdom is not additive; its maximum is that of the wisest man in a given group.

  11. HEY! If you're lookin' 'round wonderin' why there's something wrong with everything but you, WAKE UP! You're a Jive Asp.

  12. Waking a person unnecessarily should not be considered a capital crime. For a first offense, that is.

  13. From the age of six, I have known that I was sexy. And let me tell you it has been hell, sheer hell, waiting to do something about it.

  14. I usually read the obituaries first as there is always the happy chance that one of them will make my day.

  15. Johnnie, the nice thing about citing God as an authority is that you can prove anything you set out to prove. It’s just a matter of selecting the proper postulates, then insisting that your postulates are ‘inspired.’ Then no one can possibly prove that you are wrong.

      And you can't prove you're right, either.

      LOL! That went right over your head, didn't it?
