"What a fool does in the end, the wise do in the beginning. "

At least, sooner or later, it gets done.

The fool does not always do the wise thing - even in the end

darkyr on 2016-06-13 03:48:39
The wise do not always do the wise thing, even in the beginning.

Given the number of quotes on this site that are about how the only real fools are people who give up, we can take this to mean that wise people never actually start anything.

Wow, so dramatic -- coulda come from Lord Byron -- by which I mean gag me with a spoon.

intelligencia on 2016-07-18 08:25:21
Wow. Sounds like someone cares a little to much about what other people think.

"A Judge may be a farmer; but he is not to geld his own pigs. A Judge may play a little at cards for his own amusement; but he is not to play at marbles, or chuck farthing in the Piazza. "
Samuel Johnson

countessofmontecrypto on 2011-02-03 23:31:28
Very unseemly for a judge to chuck farthing.

ZeebaNeighba on 2012-06-30 19:51:41
Chuck Farthing is a friend of mine

Barnabas on 2012-09-06 19:29:29
What if he likes doing just one of those things? I kind of like chucking farthing in the piazza, myself.

Allen on 2013-09-05 07:08:39
...And you're no Chuck Farthing!

wvwoman on 2014-11-04 11:38:09
i play at cryptos for my own amusement!

mikehallbackhoe on 2015-01-03 14:34:29
you can chuck farthing, just don't get in the piazza

montyb on 2015-05-17 00:54:13
Nobody better chuck farthing in my pizza.

Mobo on 2015-10-02 09:32:11

SwampySox on 2015-10-07 13:32:49

Default All you need to know about literary criticism

"Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs." Christopher Hampton

montyb on 2013-02-20 01:13:30
Though I've never heard any lampposts complain.

kb83 on 2014-10-30 04:00:39
Yes, hopefully the writer is more articulate than a lamppost.

Default The ultimate editing stunt

I've seen many parodies of this famous quote, but darkyr takes it to a new level.

"No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft." — H. G. Wells

maradnu on 2010-07-05 19:20:41
Everybody's an editor, everybody's a critic.

bansaisequoia on 2012-10-05 19:23:15
If someone roofies my beer, they've altered my draft.

darkyr on 2016-07-13 06:30:18
In my draft, the part of the editor is played by the late HG Wells. In one scene, his zombified hand reaches out from his grave, red pen in hand, and starts marking up the epitaph on his own headstone.
