From Quotes of the Day

I haven't been keeping up with my blog subscriptions. Today I went through 200 Quotes of the Day and found these I wanted to keep (since Pratie Place is, among other things, my filing cabinet):

Thomas A. Edison: "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

Edward P. Tryon: "In answer to the question of why it happened, I offer the modest proposal that our Universe is simply one of those things which happen from time to time."

Scott Adams: "If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?"

Rita Rudner: "I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult."

Charles Kuralt: "Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything."

Frank Zappa: "Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff."

Logan Pearsall Smith: "People say that life is the thing, but I prefer reading."

Mark Twain: "It usually takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech."

Susan Ertz: "Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon."

Professor Irwin Corey: "If we don't change direction soon, we'll end up where we're going."

Jef Raskin: "Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded if you tied them the usual way. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining."

Those are some good ones, and the last one made me laugh out loud. However I do complain if the computer explodes, which explains why the boyfriend removed the picture-hanging hammer from the office several years ago.
