"The average person's ear weighs what you are, not what you were." Francis Quarles

pootie49 on 2011-04-10 01:34:00
gosh i had to read that three times before it made sense. what does the average person's ear weigh?

chopstix on 2012-09-28 04:11:20
Was there such a thing as "ear reading" like "palm reading"?

puffybob on 2013-01-25 01:31:35
Maybe an ounce or two?

sexytary on 2013-08-09 22:00:55
Gosh I thought I was the only blonde around here.

CarpeLanam on 2013-08-19 04:04:26
Like in Star Trek Deep Space 9 when the Bajorans grab somebody's ear and say "your pa is strong"? Weird quote.

oddcouple on 2013-12-11 00:08:10
Makes sense.

JD_1947 on 2014-12-28 13:31:42

I'm kind of a spleen man myself.

Allen on 2014-06-26 09:50:24
Be still my spleen!

LLapp on 2016-08-07 14:25:03
My spleen was in my throat.

maradnu on 2016-10-13 14:09:11
Could you spleen that to me?

mikehallbackhoe on 2016-11-21 17:20:08
I'm just spleenbroken over this whole affair

Roxanne on 2016-12-30 05:35:49
I like how you all have gotten right to the spleen of the matter.

abra on 2017-01-07 12:56:19
Don't wear your spleen on your sleeve.

One of those quotes I could solve a lot faster if I looked at the author.

You got a good time by reading this quote? It sure doesn't take much to make you happy.

"It is a sad fact about our culture that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practicing it."
Wystan Hugh Auden

Barnabas on 2012-03-17 18:16:07
There once was a poet named Hugh In dollars he earned so few But when he wrote or he spoke The poverty dam broke And like weeds his money just grew

montyb on 2012-04-03 18:19:37
Nice, Barnabas! I love a good limerick. Heck, I even like bad ones.

abra on 2013-09-21 14:40:41
I'm always amazed that there was a time when people made money writing poetry. Nowadays, it would have to be set to a tune. Or are there bread winning poets out there still?

JD_1947 on 2014-12-04 05:58:46
There once was a poet but you wouldn't know it, He wrote and spoke trying to show it, Though the dollars came in, He just couldn't win, No one read the lines that he writ . . .

Default The whirligig of time

"The intellect is a very nice whirligig toy, but how people take it seriously is more than I can understand." Ezra Pound

nu2dis on 2010-02-12 14:53:13
never heard of "whirligig"

fishbum on 2011-03-05 05:56:35
It was a 20th century thing.

wordloon on 2012-04-30 18:18:55
And also a much older thing. Some types have been recorded as in use several hundred years B.C. I've had fun making simple ones.

jnoodles on 2013-04-30 15:29:46
I have a solar digital one. It makes itself, operates itself, enjoys itself, learns from the experience and then outgrows itself. Not sure where it is.

"There's something beautifully soothing about a fact - even (or perhaps especially) if we're not sure what it means."
Daniel J. Boorstin

montyb on 2012-04-12 22:39:29
I originally thought "fact" was "fart" which, I suppose, could also be beautifully soothing.

universalmom on 2013-03-03 14:22:53
Hahahaha...snorting with mirth

lainecap on 2015-01-25 07:40:40
montyb---your a gas!

petname on 2015-04-24 05:53:54
That would do it. Sorry, but it came immediately to mind.

jnoodles on 2015-05-11 16:03:20
Your gas is as good as mine.

oddcouple on 2016-01-22 01:25:25
There are a lot of facts that are immensely disturbing. Especially about man's inhumanity to man.

kb1964 on 2016-05-17 08:23:56
Lots of farts are extremely disturbing as well. Talk about inhumanity!

LLapp on 2016-12-04 21:27:08
As my grandpa used to say, now you're cookin' with gas!

That's a medical opinion, not a quote.
