Fortune: 151 - 160 of 1231 from Linux People

Linux People:  151 of 1231

Brisk talkers are usually slow thinkers.  There is, indeed, no wild beast
more to be dreaded than a communicative man having nothing to communicate.
If you are civil to the voluble, they will abuse your patience; if
brusque, your character.
                -- Jonathan Swift

Buck-passing usually turns out to be a boomerang.

But I find the old notions somehow appealing.  Not that I want to go back
to them -- it is outrageous to have some outer authority tell you what is
proper use and abuse of your own faculties, and it is ludicrous to hold
reason higher than body or feeling.  Still there is something true and
profoundly sane about the belief that acts like murder or theft or
assault violate the doer as well as the done to.  We might even, if we
thought this way, have less crime.  The popular view of crime, as far as
I can deduce it from the movies and television, is that it is a breaking
of a rule by someone who thinks they can get away with that; implicitly,
everyone would like to break the rule, but not everyone is arrogant
enough to imagine they can get away with it.  It therefore becomes very
important for the rule upholders to bring such arrogance down.
                -- Marilyn French, "The Woman's Room"

"But officer, I was only trying to gain enough speed so I could coast

But since I knew now that I could hope for nothing of greater value than
frivolous pleasures, what point was there in denying myself of them?
                -- M. Proust

By doing just a little every day, you can gradually let the task
completely overwhelm you.

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.

By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart.
                -- Confucius

Calling you stupid is an insult to stupid people!
                -- Wanda, "A Fish Called Wanda"
