Quotation Saturday

It's Quotation Saturday again - where did the week go? Time is flying by faster and faster these days. Is it that darn pesky "old age" thing, or is it just because my life is more and more interesting now? Perhaps a bit of both. I'm thinking maybe more that "interesting" choice than that other, far more icky, choice.

Not "interesting" as in the ancient Chinese curse "Maybe you live in interesting times," but "interesting" as in "cool."

"I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said." -- William F. Buckley

"Imagination has always had powers of resurrection that no science can match." --Ingrid Bengis

"What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly." --Carl Rogers

"In the face of uncertainty, there is nothing wrong with hope." --Dr. Bernie Siegel

"Man is free. The coward makes himself cowardly. The hero makes himself heroic." --Jean-Paul Sartre

"Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself." --A.H. Weiler

". . . nothing for preserving the body like having no heart." --John Petit-Senn

"Ingratitude is sooner or later fatal to its author." --Tivi (West African) proverb

"Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist but you have ceased to live." --Mark Twain

And, finally:

"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy the ice cream while it's on your plate." --Thornton Wilder

I do love ice cream. Lately, I've been craving it. Probably because of the heat.
