More Assorted Aphorisms

Being a fresh installment of some aphorisms sent to me via my website, both conducive to contemplation and inducive of merriment…

A variation on a theme of Lazarus Long (see Tuesday, Nov. 15 post), by Gary Freedman:

It is better to capitulate than never.

From Christopher Dee, another wonderful Emersonism:

You teach your boy to walk, but he learns to run himself.

From Lynn Johnston, one from Gandh

You must be the change you wish to see in the world

Einstein was very quick with a quip. Here are two, the first from Martin Vincent and the second from Tim Saternow:

Life is an illusion—albeit a persistent one

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources

Sue Brown:

Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die

From Kathy Schank (my sister), who read this on a bulletin board in high school:

In its innermost depths youth is lonlier than old age

And, finally, something from Ed Huelke, which hopefully does not refer to me:

He uses quotations in the same way a drunk uses lampposts—more for support than illumination.
