You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.'

A few quotes from a Songwriter/Poet/Philosopher of the 1960's and 1970's:

"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans".

"Possession isn't nine-tenths of the law. It's nine-tenths of the problem".

"I don't know which will go first - rock 'n roll or Christianity".

"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot".

I know Grumble asked for one most profound. I was never much for following directions and so...

"We grow too soon old and too late schmart." Pennsylvania Dutch Proverb

"If the phone doesn't ring, it's me." - Jimmy Buffett

"I cannot see why we should expect an infinite God to do better in another world than he does in this." - Robert G Ingersoll

"How much there is in the world I do not want." - Socrates

"Before I speak, I have something important to say." - Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx

Yeah, you guessed right. I'm a Marxist!

WE, that's from Groucho. As well as...

"Women should be obscene and not heard."

"Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife."

"As soon as I get through with you, you'll have a clear case for divorce and so will my wife."

Perhaps not PC humor but is anything PC humorous?

Heck, I just said that! That last line. You were witnesses. Alright, maybe more like victims but you saw it right there. That was profound! Right there! Alright, alright, maybe not so profound. But I did string a few words together and you saw it. Right there!

You did see that?

I'm pretty sure that it's not happiness that is wanting what you get, but contentedness.

I would rather be without you and be unhappy than be with you and be unhappy. Then at least I will be at peace.

Yea sage advice for crappy relationships.

Funny, Orwell knew who would be president in 2008 and had this to say about him.

To be clear, that was a reference to GWB, correct?


No that would be the Big "O"!!! as in Obama!
