    Not so much a quote as it is a question...

    Perhaps stick to the more famous ones ;)

    Or another favorite:

    "Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!"

    If anyone knows who coined that phrase, let me know.

    "Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much... the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely the dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons." Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy

    Gas, grass, or ass, nobody rides for free. :D


    One of my favorites:

    "Once upon a time, there was what there was, and if nothing had happened, there would be nothing to tell"

    No probably not, but hypothetically, lets say Kerry did say it. The big question then would be: What did Bush say in rebuttal?

    Probably something like, "I'd love to stay and chat Senator Kerry, but I've got an inauguration to get to."

    I can't stand Bush... but that was a good one. ;)

    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. - attributed to Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, termed in various ways. Something those who tend to quote both men (Lincoln as well) would be well suited not to forget. :ahem: Not that this should be ruined and turned into a political debate mind you.
