I do not care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members. <br>- Groucho Marx (1890-1977)<br><br>I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn’t it. <br>- Groucho Marx<br><br>Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people <br>- P.T. Barnum<br><br>Women: can’t live with ’em... Can’t shoot ’em. <br>- David Addison<br><br>There’s nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. <br>- Johann Sebastian Bach<br><br>Committee: a group of men who keep minutes and waste hours. <br>- Milton Berle<br><br>Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it. <br>- Tallulah Bankhead <br><br>The road to excess leads to the palace of wisdom...for we never know what is enough until we know what is more than enough. <br>- William Blake<br><br>Be regular and orderly in your life, that you may be violent and original in your work. <br>- Clive Barker<br><br>An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes which can be made in a very narrow field. <br>- Niels Bohr<br><br>
