A Lack Of Famous Quotes

I know, it has been a long time since I posted. My apologies! However, I am certain the world has gotten on just fine without my thoughts on life, the universe, and everything. A few of my readers have been asking why there has been nothing new on this site lately, so I will try to get back to posting more frequently.

It occurred to me this past week that no one says anything memorable any more. We seem to remember famous and important persons' many gaffes, but no one says anything good. At least, that is my perception. Maybe I have missed a recent, good, inspirational quote.

Thankfully, there are many good ones from days of old. In light of the continued unconstitutional actions of U.S. lawmakers this week, I thought I would share this one that wandered into my email inbox:

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.

Though I enjoy good sausage, I have strong doubts that the "sausage" lawmakers created and passed this week will be a good one. This quote comes to us from Otto von Bismarck, who I admit I know nothing about other than that he was a German Chancellor. So, a little disclaimer: I know nothing of Bismarck's character, I just thought it was a good quote. Of course, we could all learn more here. And in my effort to continue to learn more history, and enjoy it, I will soon read that page myself.
