“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people they don’t like.”
“The only time people dislike gossip is when you gossip about them.”
The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”
“Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.”
When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened
or not; but my faculties are decaying now and soon I shall be so I
cannot remember any but the things that never happened. It is sad to
go to pieces like this but we all have to do it.
— Mark Twain
The bay-trees in our country are all wither’d
And meteors fright the fixed stars of heaven;
The pale-faced moon looks bloody on the earth
And lean-look’d prophets whisper fearful change.
These signs forerun the death or fall of kings.
— Wm. Shakespeare, “Richard II”
