Funny and Thought Provoking

I was reading This Week magazine today (actually more of a pamphlet). It is a wonderful periodical published, I believe, by the people who publish the UK Economist Magazine. It has a summary of issues of the week, with excerpts on all sides of that issue by different periodicals.

Anyway, they have a weekly column entitled “Wit and Wisdom”, with quotes from people today to 100s of years ago. Among this week’s quotes:

“My friends tell me I have an intimacy problem, but they really don’t know me”

—Gary Shandling

“It’s my belief we develop language because of our deep inner need to complain”

—Lily Tomlin

“If you’re more interested in what you’re saying and then what the person listening to you is, you’re the definition of a boring person”

—David Foster Wallace

“These are my values.
And if you don’t like them, I have others”
—Groucho Marx

“You fail all the time.
But you aren’t a failure until you start blaming someone else”
—Football coach Bum Phillips.

…and finally

“You can accomplish anything in life, provided that you don’t mind who gets the credit” 

—Harry Truman
