Five quotes  AUG 22 2006

A quick meme I found on Rivers are Damp:

Go here and look through random quotes until you find five that you think reflect who you are or what you believe.

Here are my five:

  • Most advances in science come when a person for one reason or another is forced to change fields. (Peter Borden)
  • The minute one utters a certainty, the opposite comes to mind. (May Sarton, Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing, 1965)
  • Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes. (Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862), Walden)
  • It's asking a great deal that things should appeal to your reason as well as your sense of the aesthetic. (W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965), 'Of Human Bondage', 1915)
  • Your best shot at happiness, self-worth and personal satisfaction - the things that constitute real success - is not in earning as much as you can but in performing as well as you can something that you consider worthwhile. (William Raspberry)
