*More Explanations For Everything — in Quotes

February 2, 2008

This one pretty much explains everything;

“The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This is a goodie too;

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” George Bernard Shaw

Maybe this can replace The Secret on those days you just can’t remember how it goes;

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.” Herm Albright

Always watch for this one, it’s important!

“One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.” Bertrand Russell

And finally a nod to Oprah, who is said to change her sheets every other day, and to X and soon to be X-husbands everywhere…

“Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn’t have to do it himself.” A. H. Weiler
