It frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy.
~Groucho Marx. Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx (1890–1977) was an American comedian and film star famed as a master of wit.
Time is money, especially when you are talking to a lawyer or buying a commercial.
~Frank Dane, British actor of the silent era
Money is a headache, and money is the cure.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.
~Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love (1973). Robert Anson Heinlein (1907 – 1988) was one of the most popular, influential, and controversial authors of science fiction of the 20th Century.
Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.
~Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love (1973)
The future is called perhaps, which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the only important thing is not to allow that to scare you.
~Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending, 1957
Knew where they went—
They went to God’s Right Hand—
That Hand is amputated now
And God cannot be found—
The abdication of Belief
Makes the Behavior small—
Better an ignis fatuus
Than no illume at all—
The Denver Post may have been on to more than it realized when it reported, “the former Deputy Attorney General said the bar has never been so successful in serving the poor.”
A lawyer and a physician had a dispute over precedence. They referred it to Diogenes, who gave it in favor of the lawyer as follows: “Let the thief go first, and the executioner follow.”
Diogenes went to look for an honest lawyer. “How’s it going?” someone asked. “Not too bad,” answered Diogenes. “I still have my lantern.”
The King Judged
You have been judged
And fallen short;
Your kingdom split,
You’ll reign no more.
