To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson *

* Apparently there is some disagreement as to the true attribution of this piece of work.

Stealing? How could you?! Haven’t you learned anything from that guy who gives those sermons at church? Captain what’s-his-name? We live in a society of laws. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well, I didn’t hear anybody laughin’, did you?

- Homer J. Simpson

Simpson’s Valentine’s Day Quote

Because it’s still St. Valentine’s Day…I thought I would post another Simpson’s quote that is somewhat topical…

Inspired by the most logical race in the galaxy, The Vulcans, breeding will be permitted once every seven years. For many of you, this will mean much less breeding. For me, much much more.

- Comic Book Guy

A quick thought from Homer…

Selling Out

June 29th, 2003 | No Comments | Posted in quotes

So I told myself whenever I put up this blog that I would make a noble attempt to keep it updated if not on a daily basis, an almost daily basis.

Well I figured out a easy way to keep that promise, but in typical Eric fashion, not put in too much work. There’s this whiteboard at work that people put up funny quotes and sayings on on a daily basis. If I find something that is particularly funny or amusing, I’ll put it up here. If there is an author attached, I’ll give due credit. Also, every-so-often, I’ll sprinkle in a Davism. Davisms are famous around the Danker household, because my Dad (The Dave in Davism) uses them often.

I’ll even start this one out with a Davism I heard this weekend…

“There’s never a traffic jam on the extra mile”
