    “The Mormons had good news today. Billy Graham, who is 112, has taken Mormonism off his website's list of cults. This is typical of Christian right's stance on Mitt Romney. They still believe he will go to Hell for all eternity but in this life, they'd like a tax cut." - Bill Maher

    “So then God created the world, and on the first day he created light and air and fish and jam and soup and potatoes and haircuts and arguments and small things and rabbits and people with noses and jam – more jam, perhaps – and soot and flies and tobogganing and showers and toasters and grandmothers and, uh … Belgium. And the second day he created fire and water and eggnog and radiators and lights and Burma and things that go "urh" and … and Colonel Gaddafi and Arthur Negus. On the third day he probably got lists and said, "I can't remember what I've invented now. I've just been ad-libbing so far." – Eddie Izzard

    “Thought is action in rehearsal” – William Zinsser

    “We will be one of the extinguished species. The good news is that life on the planet will recover and peace will return to the environment.” – Michael Boulter

    • Perhaps Mr. Popper's quote should be altered a bit to best desciribe your political philosophy echo.

      Perhaps it shoud read “True ignorance is not the absence of knowledge, but the refusal to acknowledge it.”

    • Thanks Echo. I always look forward to wrapping up the week with five minutes of these: Good for you finding Elbert Hubbard (“The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.” – Elbert Hubbard); talk about an obscure American sage. We've got his Little Journeys to the Homes of Good Men and Great, and Message to Garcia, which are good for 15-20 minutes of distraction on a rainy winter day.
