on this day ...

On this day in 551 B.C., Confucius was born. Among his many memorable sayings, here are just a few:

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection,
which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and
third, by experience, which is the bitterest.

And remember, no matter where you go, there you are. *

* Actually, this quote was stolen by
..Confucius. In reality, Henry, his
..noble cat, stated this c.512 B.C.
..while on his annual summer retreat.

Brian quotes

"The Family Guy", is one of my favourite TV programs and Brian my favourite character even if he is just a common canine.

: Hey, barkeep, whose leg do you have to hump to get a dry martini around here?

Peter: So did your therapist figure out what the problem was?
Brian: Yeah. He thinks I'm in love.
Peter: Oh my can talk!
Brian: If dogs aren't supposed to eat dental floss out of the trash, why did they make it mint-flavoured?

more feline wisdom...

This quote is often erroneously attributed to George Orwell. It was, in fact, first uttered by his cat, Ralph
(see below), who also famously said:

When are you going to change the damn litterbox, genius?
