137. Some quotes I like.

Richard Russell: "I'll tell you the truth -- I still haven't made any sense out of the whole mix. If I've come to any conclusion it is this -- 85% of mankind is clueless and living on a hand-to-mouth basis. 5% of mankind is smart and pretty much knows what they are doing. Ten percent are intelligent enough to follow the 5%. "

Kurt Vonnegut: "The most beautiful thing money could buy was a childhood a lifetime long. "

Honore de Balzac: Deeply in debt for most of his life. Honore de Balzac elatedly sent this announcement to his publisher and friends on the death of his miserly uncle who left him a sizable bequest.
    “Yesterday, at five in the morning, my uncle and I passed on to a better life.”

Eugene O’Neill: Traveling in Europe, Eugene O’Neill received a cable from Jean Harlow asking if he would write a play for her. “Reply collect in 20 words.” read the cable. O’Neill did:
 NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
        O’NEILL

Marge Piercy "Try to live as if you were an experiment conducted by the future"

Johnny Carson: "Democracy means that anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn't grow up can be vice president."

"Paul Harvey:  In times like these, it helps to remember that there have always been times like these."

Abraham Lincoln: ”No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar."

Thomas Jefferson:” I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it."

"An American is an Englishman set free" (who said?)

"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."
-Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986)
