Idle Thoughts

January 2008

Some idle thoughts for readers to consider.

Hard work pays off in the future, laziness pays off now.

If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

My mechanic told me "I couldn't repair your brakes so I made your horn louder."

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

A conclusion is when you get tired of thinking.

Experience is something you don't get before you need it.

The hardness of the butter is directly proportional to the softness of the bread.

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.

The sooner you fall behind the more time you will have to catch up.

Punctuation Matters

A teacher in an adult English class wrote the words " A woman without her man is nothing" on the board and asked the class to punctuate them.

The men in the class wrote "A woman, without her man, is nothing."

The women wrote "A woman; without her, man is nothing."
