WORDS OF WISDOM
A couple of quotations caught my eyes this week:
Andre Malraux, 1901 - 1976, French novelist, essayist and art critic:
"Man knows that the world is not made on a human scale; and he wishes that it were."
"Art is a revolt against fate."
Thomas Malthus, 1766 - 1834, English political economist
"Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio. Subsistence only increases in an arithmetical ratio."
"The perpetual struggle for room and food."
Will Rogers, 1879 - 1935, American actor and humourist:
"The more you read about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other."
L. P. Hartley, 1895 - 1972, English novelist:
"The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there."
Joseph C. Stinson, 1947 - , American Writer, (words spoken by Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry):
"Go ahead, make my day."
