    Re: Quotes

    I have a few but these are the best three (until I read better ones)

    movie quote:
    "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." (Mandy Patinkin as Inigo Montoya in the Princess Bride

    Latin Quote:
    Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur. go google it if you must know.

    Sums me up:
    “I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
    - Robert McCloskey.
    -- A lot of my work revolves around meaning and intepretation, so I actually use it as a test to see if my work is going to make sense to my audience.
    Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur

    "The most beautiful experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He for whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

    I seldom laugh out loud reading the morning paper, but this gem was in our "short takes" (letters to the editor) today:

    "I don't know, maybe it's my age, but Lady Gaga reminds me a lot of Phyllis Diller" - Ken Johnson.

    - Joe U.
