Ramblings & things that make you go "Hmm...."


"Wise men make proverbs, but fools repeat them." - Samuel Palmer

Each link leads to a collection of quotes, which I've been gathering from various sources for many years. Some are from common sources and are frequently repeated, but many of these, I hope, will be new to you!

They are divided somewhat loosely by topic, but don't expect too much organization. Watch for more soon! (Oh, and if you see any mistakes, please let me know.)
