Quotes

Here’s my new email sig:

“There are two motives for reading a book: one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.”—Bertrand Russell

I’ve yet to read any of his books, but I seem to keep quoting him at every oppurtunity. About time I should rectify that…

Of course, my old sig was:

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”—Groucho Marx

Damn, that quote still makes me laugh.

Oh, and I came upon this Vonnegut gem via chromatius

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.”—Kurt Vonnegut
