Some of my Favorite Quotes

Wow, this blogging thing is more difficult than I thought.  I have to find something interesting to say almost every day now, when normally I can go days without saying anything interesting to anyone.  But now, apparently, I've made some sort of a commitment to be entertaining. 

Well, too bad.  I can't just sit around making you people laugh or cr or whatever.  I'm nobody's clown.  In fact, I hate clowns.

Anyway, today, rather than be charming and witty and so on myself, I've provided a short list of quotations other people have said that I find charming and witty and thought-provoking, etc.  I tried to give credit to those who said them, but some  are so old I don't remember where they came from.
