“A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.”

Leo Tolstoy

If there IS a future, that is.

Reminds me of the best suicide note I ever heard about: "Due to lack of interest, tomorrow has been cancelled". Very Sad

A man always has two reasons for doing anything: a good reason and the real reason.
J. P. Morgan

That's true for going to war, too. Do you really think the Trojan War was all about Helen, and the US Civil War was all about slavery? Think again!

Persius - "We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays."

Came across the above while surfing the Internet. Worth posting, I thought. Very Happy

That one reminds me of the saying about happiness being something that exists in the past, as memories, and in the future, as expectations/hopes. There is no present state. They say.

The quote of the Day should be "I am Charlie". Or "The pen is mightier than the sword". But I came across one I like:

There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The trouble is that for far too many people they wouldn't know what obvious fact was even if it rose up and bit them in the face.... another saying.....
