I read this one today:

'Men are like rivers, they become crooked when they take the path of least resistance'.


Anyone have an interesting quote to share?

No Butch, I guess not. I got all hyper after eating breakfast. It wasn't really aimed at anyone, and any commies or socialists that may have been offended, my apologies. I sometimes forget I'm a prick.

This is one I heard MANY times from my Grandpa "Jason, you will never soar with the eagles when you are flocking with the turkeys."

Pete, your Winston Churchill quote reminded me of another from him.

Lady Astor to Winston Churchill: "Sir, if you were my husband, I would put arsenic in your tea."
Churchill: "Madam, if you were my wife, I would drink it."
