Thursday Thirteen - Edition 42 - Quippy Quotes

13 Relatively Unfamiliar Quotations I Like - with a little Editorializing

1.....Originality is the fine art of remembering what you hear but forgetting where you heard it. ..... Laurence J. Peter (This one excuses me when I pilfer someone else's ideas and blog about them. Originality also explains most the the quotations in this list.)
2....Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. (This is why I have so much difficulty making decisions.)

3....The best intelligence test is what we do with our leisure.

4....It's better to have loved and lost than to have to do forty pounds of laundry a week. (I'm not sure what this means, but anything that acknowledges the irritation of the constance of "Mount NeverRest" gets my vote.)

5....Every girl should use what Mother Nature gave her before Father Time takes it away.

6....Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell, and advertise.

7....Against logic there is no armor like ignorance.

8....The man who says he is willing to meet you halfway is usually a poor judge of distance. (There may not actually BE a halfway!)

9.....There are two kinds of failures: those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought. (And each kind of failure deplores the other kind more.)

10....You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Don't let yourself indulge in vain wishes.

11....Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than going to the garage makes you a car. (However, in both instances, you are in the right place to fix what it wrong.)

12....Slump, and the world slumps with you. Push, and you push alone. (Amen! Preach it!)

13.... Heredity is what sets the parents of a teenager wondering about each other.
