    Sometimes while reading this forum we come across something so brilliant, or funny, or just plain nice that we want to call attention to it. Like this from our own fearless leader:

    "If you think about it, if we're going to spend less than a century, most of us, here on earth, and the rest of eternity elsewhere, then perhaps it doesn't really matter so much who the idiots elect in November."

    I am honored to be the first, and I appreciate and applaud the idea of a thread in which we can immortalize quotes from some of our members here, particularly those that can be applied to situations beyond the discussion in which they were made.

    Good morning to all-

    My favorite quote- at this time- I've heard it attributed to both Ben Franklin and Dr. Sam Johnson-

    "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

    you all be safe and keep well- Ed

    Ditto. But somehow that didn't quite come across. :D

    @Andrea Lindsey -- I'll have to think on this one. So many Brunner quotes, so little time. :p

    "I sometime wish I had a reset button. I suppose my big decision would be where to reset life. I've had so many failures I'd almost have to go back to the beginning to correct most of those and I'm not sure I'd want to do that. They were my failures, my responsibility." -- Bill Boggs (RIP)
