It could be a proverb or a famous quote:

I quite like these "Marxist" comments:

"Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms"

"I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8. to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30"

(That would be Groucho not Karl btw )

And then there's Margaret Thatcher:

"It may be the cock that crows, but it is the hen that lays the eggs."

"If you want to cut your own throat, don't come to me for a bandage."

"In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman."

"If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn't swim."

"I owe nothing to Women's Lib."

"Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country."

A chinese proverb

"Do not remove a fly from your friend's forehead with a hatchet."

If you discover a quote or proverb worth sharing, whilst on your cyber travels, perhaps you could post it here.

We learn from history that we do not learn anything from history.

You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2 equals 3 and there is a way out enough for one person only.

Quoting Daydreamer:


Thanks for pointing this out, I hadn't realised. Oh well, I'm not the first and I'm sure I won't be the last to start a similar thread to one or many that have gone before. Such is life.

Of course you're neither the first nor the last, I just like things well organised that's why I showed previous threads of a similar title. I do recommend browsing pre-existing threads before posting a new one.

Digression, objections, delight in mockery, carefree mistrust are signs of health; everything unconditional belongs in pathology.
