Hmm, but a lot of people start with a lot more advantages than others

everyone has to be somewhere- said the boyfriend to the husband, when the latter came home unexpectedly and found him hiding under the bed and asked him- 'what are you doing here"?

"The wise learn from the experience of others, and the creative know how to make a crumb of experience go a long way."
— Eric Hoffer

fredsevent on 2012-02-05 15:21:55
No. you're totally wrong dude. The wise learn from solving cryptograms and absorbing the quotes. The creative...eh...who knows, they're weird.

spellbinder on 2012-07-07 11:53:09
The creative...those weirdos utter sentences that become famous quotes and end up on this site. Then we, the wise people solve it .

wordfairy on 2014-10-09 12:31:36
Hear, hear!

Quizzical on 2014-10-22 13:53:54
And we the wise people pick them apart for their nonsense.

marnita on 2016-05-04 12:23:34
And complain about their grammar and word usage.

"Isn't it marvelous how those scientists know the names of all those stars? "
— Unattributed

bansaisequoia on 2010-05-27 19:39:34
Like Betelgeuse, Procyon, Antares, Fomalhaut and Torcularis Septentrionalis?

pootie49 on 2012-07-03 13:46:31
um yup those!

montyb on 2012-07-30 22:05:02
Don't forget Altair, Deneb, Algol, Arturus, Barnard's star, Spica, Wolf 359. Yes there really is a Wolf 359, but we're a few centuries from meeting the Borg there.

kjmcaj on 2013-05-03 23:19:50
43 seconds.

locodad on 2014-04-24 15:06:19
90 seconds

The Borg are here on Earth! Yes! There's Bjorn Borg, and Sven Borg and Annika Borg and Haakon Borg and Kirsten Borg...

dovid1946 on 2015-01-03 06:03:28
and isn't it ironic that Lou Gehrig had Lou Gehrig's disease?

A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked."
— Bernard Meltzer

bansaisequoia on 2012-10-09 15:50:02
Slightly?

montyb on 2012-10-26 20:46:56
From this cracked egg to another, Bansai.

momof7 on 2013-10-19 14:42:22
I feel more scrambled.

wvwoman on 2013-11-30 03:39:34
cracked AND scrambled here.

SippyGurl on 2014-06-02 10:13:29
soft boiled am i

nothing on 2015-01-26 16:00:18
Ahh - my true identity - I am all types of eggs: sometimes hard boiled, sometimes poached, benedict. souffle or flambe

oddcouple on 2015-05-01 01:33:58
Fried for me.

dovid1946 on 2015-05-10 08:25:30
eggs-actly

marnita on 2015-05-24 07:46:17
An egg is not of much use until it is cracked.

"A mind all logic is like a knife all blade."
— Rabindranath Tagore

montyb on 2012-08-28 00:58:18
I can't quite get a handle on this one.

wvwoman on 2012-12-06 17:16:45
the full quote is: "A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it." is that helpful? (it doesn't help me much.)

geeko321 on 2013-10-21 09:17:20
Monty's comment was a joke. And a quite clever one I might add.

universalmom on 2014-06-09 12:46:46
(can't believe I even got here…:P)

chopstix on 2014-07-03 06:38:51
hahahahaha to the thread of the first 3 comments!

kb83 on 2014-10-20 06:46:57
As a user of logic, I feel shafted.

tjsrc on 2015-02-19 06:39:03
And a mind without any logic is like a knife with no blade: useless.

LLapp on 2015-07-04 14:02:36
And a mind all anecdotal evidence is a knife all handle. (What a fun metaphor -- it can work all kinds of ways.)

judy100 on 2015-07-27 12:14:47
There are many dull logicians.

GtrZan on 2016-05-06 04:47:15
a) I really like this quote. b) I really like montyb's comment, very punny. c) I got nuthin' to add but Mr Spock would love this conversation
