    "Make things as simple as possible - but not any simpler"

    paraphrased and generally attributed to Albert Einstein. I've found this piece of advice invaluable.

    Close,

    Mark Twain used the quote, but it is often reported that he lifted it from someone else, though I won't quote who since that is also questioned.

    The entire quote is.

    There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

    1. "Art is to entertainment as science is to technology." Nelson Goodman.

    2. "Use your head and save your feet." I first heard this from my grandma. In my present medical condition, going on 8 years, I say this to myself countless times a day.

    3. "There are seven levels." Paul McCartney, high on MJ for the first time, with Dylan, who brought some to the hotel where the Beatles were staying during their first US visit. He had Mal Evans write it down that night, and must have been a little deflated reading this the next morning.

    When I graduated from high school, a former neighbor gave me a book of quotes. During a long, lonely, and lost period in my early twenties, I would read one quote a day.

    For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.


    Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.



    Time dissipates to shimmering ether the solid angularity of facts.
