I've gotten so much younger, it's a shame my body hasn't heard.

maradnu on 2015-01-25 12:03:13
Ah, but I was so much older then I'm younger than that now.

Ah, ageism. The last "acceptable" prejudice!

"Unquestionably, it is possible to do without happiness; it is done involuntarily by nineteen-twentieths of mankind."
John Stuart Mill

You didn't expect quotes about sunshine and daisies from that face. Did you?

Quote:
OMgosh, I was quoted. I'm shocked and thrilled.
Abra, you merit multiple citations. I always read your comments and usually learn something or laugh out loud.

Where did Mr. Mill get that statistic, 19/20s of mankind? Did he pull it out of you-know-where? Did he generalize from his own feelings? Recent research on happiness suggests he was far off the mark. Most people can generate happiness, even in fairly miserable circumstances, and it's essential to survival.

Any cook will tell you that. But look what happened to the cook!

I love that movie.

bansaisequoia on 2011-08-02 14:16:03
What movie?

WRQ9 on 2012-07-27 00:06:53

BeeAre on 2012-09-22 13:04:10
I thought this was Walter Durranty talking about Joe Stalin starving millions of people in the Ukraine famine of the late thirties.

What did the egg say to the cook?-You crack me up

Lurker on 2013-09-21 12:55:55
The movie was Clue. I believe this particular exchange was Martin Mull and Eileen Brennan.

Munchlet. Interesting quote about 19/20th of people. I don't believe it either, but I don't believe very many statistics. I think 95% of statistics are made up to prove whatever the quoter wants them to say.
