Stephen Admin, thanks for sending us a quornuquopia of new quotes! I love them even if they are authored by obscure controversial figures and I'm hoping for even more. Topping my list of the obscure controversial is Addison Mizner, whose architectural grotesquerie is responsible for the plethora of pink/green structures environing inhabitants of Palm Beach County. I hope maradnu is far enough removed from his influence on the west coast of our peninsula. Thank you once again for scraping the bottom of the peanut butter jar of notable quotations! Bring them on! Whether Adolph Hitler, Sun Tzu, Niccolo di Machiavelli, the Marquis de Sade, Ezra Pound or Gilbert Chesterton [shudder], keep them coming. We will continue to solve! Render unto us tens of thousands more!

Stephen:

I echo bansai's sentiments...the new quotes are great, and it's a good thing because I was beginning to memorize many of the old ones. :)

Here's to Arthur Stringer, Brenda Ueland, Allan K. Chalmers, Amos Tversky, and Barbara Bush. And let's not forget ........Ben Gaye, III.

Many thanks, Stephen, a great site is now even greater!

I agree completely. The new quotes are great. I, too, had memorized several of the quotes I saw regularly. Thanks!

Laura, you've hit on some of the most obscure of the newly added contributors. (Except for that Barbara Bush--I think I've heard of her) I may be the only person on this site who knows who Addison Mizner is, and then only because he is of local interest. Look how annoyingly ubiquitous his name is in South Florida: :rolleyes:

bansaisequoia,

I may be asking a loaded question here, but exactly who is Mizner?

He's an architect who is responsible for the style of lots of buildings here in Palm Beach County. In some cases, this may mean a color scheme of pale green and pink stucco [brrrr!] But some people think he's great.

Thanks for the info.

I think I could pass on a green and pink color scheme - not my favorite colors in the world.

Flutefish, some people might think this is a breathtaking picture (and I admit the flora are quite scenic), but to me this pink/turquoise color scheme just doesn't cut it. Perhaps it seems an exotic change of pace to others in this forum, but after 23 years here in the subtropics I am jaded. I welcome all attacks on this statement. http://www.roadfood.com/insider/photos/4693.jpg

It does make a pretty pic, but I don't think I'd want to look at that color scheme on a daily basis. On the other hand, I just might get used to it and not notice after a while...

It looks so clean and sunny... I'm in a suburb about 15 miles south of D.C. and it's all that route 1 and strip mall kind of place. I have my little townhouse with a pretty backyard though, so I like it. Basically, I suppose it has been SO long since I've had any sort of vacation that pink and turquoise are starting to look very good. (cancun in 2001 was the last REAL one I took)

Living there might be a little bright on the eyes, but I'm not even close to disliking that picture at this point!:)

Kat, I think that means your vacation is about 6 years overdue. I'm lucky - I live in Raleigh, NC. We have plenty of malls and highways (nothing like DC - we're way more spread out), but we also have lots of greenspace. Plus the beach is only a few hours away, so it's easy to take day-trips there. The mountains are a little further away, but it's still easy to take a weekend trip if you want. Can't ask for much more than that! I like the palm trees though - I've never seen one in person. Someday...
