Doh! I'm slow. Stay tuned for my quote!

Jake

So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?

-Ayn Rand-

Dave Tufte

So, lets see what others wrote that I liked.

From Gad(d)About: "Hey guys, let's try some of my songs." - Dave Grohl, from his Top 10 signs a band is about to fire the drummer.

From Cerulean Sanctum: "The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried." G.K. Chesterton (that's a good summation of why I personally am more interested in religion and the religious than church and churchgoers).

Also from Cerulean Santum, this tidbit from Douglas Adams: "The Vogon ships hung in the air in the same way that bricks don't." (Yes, it's a dumb quote, but I remember that line after all these years as well - a striking metaphor I guess).

The links also took me to QuotesBlog at http://quotesblog.blogspot.com/.

From Sycamore came this "Having a platonic female friends is like playing with your food. It's childish, it's poor manners, and, ultimately, very unsatisfying. At some point, someone will come along and eat it right off your plate, hurting your feelings in the process." - from an unknown signature on a music message board.

It's interesting that this meme is thriving amongst evangelical blogs but dying amongst others.

David Foster

I have a whole series of thought-provoking quotes threaded together under the heading "Worth Pondering." One of my favorites is this, from Chesterton:

"I believe what really happens in history is this: the old man is always wrong; and the young people are always wrong about what is wrong with him. The practical form it takes is this: that, while the old man may stand by some stupid custom, the young man always attacks it with some theory that turns out to be equally stupid."

The "Worth Pondering" thread starts here:

David Tufte

This is cool, but somewhat difficult to click through.

It does make me think that I need to go read some Chesterton though.
