No SJ quotes yet? Well, I guess I'd better chip in with mine:
"I am as I ever was, and ever shall be, yours, yours, yours."
- John Adams, in a letter to his wife Abigail
"Maturity is knowing you were an idiot in the past... Wisdom is knowing that you'll be an idiot in the future... and common sense is knowing that you should try not to be an idiot now."
- from the webcomic "Questionable Content"
It was a dry wind, and it swept across the desert and it curled into the circle of birth/And the dead sand falling on the children, the mothers and the fathers and the automatic earth/These are the days of miracle and wonder, this is the long distance call/The way the camera follows us in slo-mo, the way we look to us all/The way we look to a distant constellation that's dying in a corner of the sky/These are the days of miracle and wonder, and don't cry baby, don't cry, don't cry/
- Paul Simon, "The Boy in the Bubble"
