Quote for Today

    There are really only three types of people: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who say, "What happened?"

    True, a little learning is a dangerous thing, but it still beats total ignorance.

    -- Abigail van Buren (Pauline Esther Friedman Phillips)
