*If everyone who was called an idiot by others was turned into an idiot, the world would be full of idiots, which it is, just not for this reason.
*Language is an amazing thing, not just for how it can explain complex ideas, but for how it can be used to conceal the truth. If not for the latter ability, several million attorneys would be out of work.
Friendship doubles our joys and halves our grief.
Dolly Madison 1768-1849
