“The greatest slave-master of all is greed”
“The worst lie of all is the one you tell yourself.”
It works, it sort of works, and it doesn’t work. The first is great, the second is good and can be made better, and the last you should admit and try something else.
Note doesn’t apply to politicians!!

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”
“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.”
One funny and the other very true.
“A person’s got to take some chances or life will never come to nothing”
Pa Otter as quoted by his widow Alice Otter to their son Emmet Otter from the 1977 Jim Henson TV special Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas. I remember watching this when it first aired more then 30 years ago. I don’t remember doing it but I have an audio cassette of the show taped when it was first aired. Every Christmas I watch some old TV Christmas shows like a cosmic Christmas, the forgotten toys, mole’s Christmas, wish for wings, wakko’s wish, and it was while searching for the last one that to my wondrous eyes and great delight up pops emmet otter’s jug band Christmas. It’s the whole show except the parts with Kermit the frog doing commentary on the show.
