First, from our armchair activist...
"Man, in his sensitivity, does not give names to animals he intends to eat but goes on giving names to children he intends to send to war."
"No doubt more of those who are without sin would cast the first stone if they didn't tend to have paws."
"There is a limit to man's carnivorousness. As a rule, he does not eat meat that started out having hands."
"A true sportsman is a hunter lost in the woods and out of ammo."
... and something from our resident ruminator...
"In this, the late afternoon of my life, I wonder: am I casting a longer shadow or is my shadow casting a shorter me?"
"Sometimes our prayers for success are answered by an apparent failure, a change of course being necessary for success."
"Just once it might be instructive to pretend you're accepting an award for failure, just to see who you would thank."
... and a few from a clearly tiring brain...
"I've discovered that you can't open a clear plastic food container with your teeth, and I'm beginning to think the dinosaurs couldn't either."
"Perhaps the Ten Commandments would be more widely observed if Moses had brought them down on refrigerator magnets."
"A wise saying is something you keep picking up off the floor in front of your fridge."
"Question: If time paused, how would we know the length of the pause?"
"Okay, so you want to be a college teacher. Figure twelve years for elementary, middle and high school, four years for college, two for a Master's degree, three or so for a PHD -- then you'll be needing your Brains-You Were-Born-With Equivalency Certificate... ."
"Think about it, have you ever seen a high school diploma on a doctor's wall?"
"Hail the academic study group! Think of all we owe to the work of Ike Newton's crew and the ideas of Al Einstein and his team."
... and, finally, two from the archives
"Judge kindly the person whose shadow you have never cast."
"A true friend stands in your shadow and thinks it shade."
