I came across this quote today - and it shocked me

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

I came across this quote today - and it shocked me

"A man will fight harder for his interests than for his rights"
~ Napoleon Bonaparte

Does this tweak you at all?
Me?
Yes.

There are three quotes which guide my life:

Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence- Napolean Bonaparte. (Neither Meade nor Sandi are evil... they're just stupid. Flanders, on the other hand, is evil.)

I don't want to belong to any club that would accept me as a member- Groucho Marx. (If she finds me attractive, there must be something wrong with her.)

Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing, after they've exhausted all other possibilities- Winston Churchill. (We're basically good people, it just takes us a while to sift through our bad habits.)

Hey now. Like most,I have done some dumb things in my life, but I am not stupid.

Per Jason I'm trying to clean up my attitude in posting. Your flaming is stressing my resolve.

Sandi, I'm inclined to agree with pj... only cuz you live in jville's 4th ward.

Just no justification for that.

Thank you, very much, PJ.
That helped me.
Now, I am off to point out a better piece of your prose on another thread that I, regretfully, banned myself from. Since I "banned" myself, I will allow "myself" this.
