"What a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive." Unattributed

pootie49 on 2009-03-02 21:15:07
When "first we practice to deceive"

bansaisequoia on 2009-07-06 22:32:37
And the quote is from Sir Walter Scott's, "Marmion," Canto VI, Stave 17.

Nevertheless, one should leave deceptions to the trained professionals.

Vanna White? Merv Griffin enterprises? You all know that Donald Trump says this to himself at least a hundred times a day?

I once read that Merv Griffin only hires people with large he.ads (not referring to egos)

"The primary use of conversation is to satisfy the impulse to talk. "
George Santayana

Wolfie on 2013-09-21 00:57:20
Something tells me that Santayana's primary use of writing essays was to satisfy his impulse to pontificate.


abra on 2014-09-22 09:49:35
He's quite the pontificator.


Barnabas on 2015-04-14 09:26:58
Uh oh, the Santayana winds are blowing again.


LLapp on 2016-06-13 15:14:20
The primary use of cryptograms is to satisfy the impulse to comment.

"If I have made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention than to any other talent. "
Isaac Newton

That and the balancing act you did on the shoulders of giants.

LLapp on 2014-10-27 17:31:04
So it was Newton who developed the binomial theorem -- the beginning of my epic downfall in eighth grade math? That's it, I am not buying any more of his cookies.

"The cyclone derives its powers from a calm center. So does a person."
Norman Vincent Peale

montyb on 2012-08-04 03:36:31
The calm center is the result of the formation of a cyclone; it is not the cause.

Thank you, Monty! Your understanding of basic science has kept you from making millions in the self-help biz.

Then the gods need to get their eyes checked.

wvwoman on 2014-03-21 11:33:58
i knew i'd had that word before (more than once), but couldn't remember what it was (tattoos)--i think being the plural form didn't help--all i could come up with to fit was babboon! once i worked around it, it filled in. yikes!

Barnabas on 2014-04-12 05:43:49
Well, WV... a man without babboons is less likely to be sued by his neighbors.

marnita on 2015-06-04 16:55:32
Babboon! I can't stop laughing!
