Janie’s Quotable Favorites

(in no particular order)

  • “I used to think that life was unfair. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be much worse, if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.” Marcus, Babylon 5, A Late Delivery From Avalon

  • “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” Booker T. Washington, 1856-1915

  • “Faith strikes me as intellectual laziness, but I don’t argue with it-especially as I am rarely in a position to prove that it is mistaken.  Negative proof is usually impossible.”  Jubal Harshaw, A Stranger In a Strange Land, by Robert A. Heinlein
  • TEACHER: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
    DONALD: H I J K L M N O.
    TEACHER: What are you talking about?
    DONALD: Yesterday you said it’s H to O.

This one came from The Laughing Housewife.  It’s not much of a quote I suppose, but I sure liked it.
