But that's a quote!

Fortunately, I'm quoting myself.

I'm not just naughty, I'm dense as well!

Well, that's okay, 'cause I'm neither a philosopher nor very wise.

But I might be an ever-clever liar...

See my last post at Seven Roads on the Aphoristic Style, I think a good rationale. (Yes, it's a quote.)

Greg, I followed the link in your link and found this at Scholar Island:

"Borrowed thoughts, like borrowed money, only show the poverty of the borrower." -Marguerite Gardiner

Well worth quoting . . . I think.

Love it. Can I quote your quote of your quote?

Sure, Randy, if you quote me on it.

If I could figure out how to do it, I would tip my cap to you in a self-referring link that would just open a new window of the same link every time you clicked it.

I suspected you were an evil genius after this post. Your response to Mr. Mcroberts proves it!

Ah, James, if only it were true, but I fear that I'm just a tiny bit evil and no genius at all.

You are good, man.
