Robert Orden: Time flies. It's up to you to be the navigator.

Dorothy Parker: They sicken of the calm that know the storm.

Unattributed: I am a Marxist...of the Groucho tendency.

Gilbert Chesterton: All slang is metaphor, and all metaphor is poetry.

Ernest Dimnet: All serious conversations gravitate towards philosophy.

John Ruskin: Life without industry is guilt. Industry without art is brutality.
where is the fun, the challenge? I enjoy a puzzel that is an "Obnoxiously difficult quote" At 62 I like to think I can still reason them out; I may not
be a speed demon like some but in time I get them done
