  • Perhaps we shouldn’t try and repair a roof while it’s raining; however there is no better time for discovering exactly where it leaks.


  • For truth to triumph over that which is false, we must first reject absolutely those that claim truth only because of the authority of their positions.


  • Some protect themselves in an armor of quotations in order to deflect the words of others and to protect their own lack of understandings.


  • The cockroaches should give thanks each night for our having provided them with homes that are so free of its predators.

  • In today’s litigious climate, it may not be long before the person that builds a better mousetrap will face a class-action suit in court from the mice.


  • It is enormously easier to believe that we understand one another than it is to actually do so.


  • When a large tree falls in a forest when no one is present, it makes a sound but no noise.


  • Glory is a perishable commodity; glory older than ten years is dead and best buried in its grave lest it in turn bores others to death.
