Post Your Favorite Quote/s of All Time ~ Weekend Fun!~

Profound, funny or enlightening

do your best to attribute it properly

Post as many as you wish...

you can even post your own, attribute it also!

here's one that's fitting for the time yet timeless:

 

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

Isaac Asimov 1980

...

Play nicely... or at least as nice as you can, hehe

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries.

Pretty sure it was either Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, or G.K. Chesterton who first said this. One of those three.:P

Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.
