"Never Mistake Genius

for lack of talent" - Peter Steele (Type-O-Negative)

It's such a fine line...

...between Clever and Stupid!

As spoken by David and Nigel from Spinal Tap.


Exercise Liberty and Humor. :-)

America Rising.
The Constitution Stands.

"That the pen is mightier than the sword would be proven false; if I should take my sword and cut off the hand that holds the pen" - American Nomad

This coming from a man who "sailed" is single man skiff without

ever noticing his skiff did not have a rudder. -- Priceless.

*The lesson, if we apply ourselves passionately to one thing, we MIGHT become brilliant at it (if we are lucky), but for everything else, we are "just average" and sometimes (unfortunately more often than not) "below average". It is safe to say that while Einstein was brilliant in physics of cosmology, yet when it came to understanding the physics of sailing, he was clearly "below average".

*The Take-away is this -- just because someone is an expert in one field, does not make them an expert or even wise about other fields of human knowledge. That is, don't take medical advice from a Free Market PHD and certainly, don't take economic advice from an MD. (unless he is that rare freak of nature who has had the time to mastered two fields of human knowledge such as Dr. Ron Paul).

"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."

"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."

"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."

"Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves."

"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning."

"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."
