O wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't.


It's poetry night, right?

No, we're doing readings from BrainyQuote.

"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place."

I got a million of 'em.

"Today millions of people are living who will never do it again. Millions are being born for the first time–-and millions are doing nothing because it’s the best offer they’ve had this week. It is for these people and many others that the Surprise Party is conceived and desecrated, founded upon the principle that everybody is just as good as anybody else, even though they aren’t quite so smart."

From my book How to Become President. The BrainyQuote people didn't like that one for some reason.

Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill, laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass. Which is high, it needs cutting.

"Buzz whined so much about not going first that I agreed to a game of rock paper scissors just to shut him up. The thing is, he *always* chose rock. He was very predictable that way. Paper won, as it must, and the rest is history."

I've known a few rock people in my time, so eager to smash scissors and forever shocked anyone would choose paper - or indeed, that anything beat rock. You'd see them in the break room practicing, both hands rocks, bashing one fist against the other in frustration.
