A thread of something someone said that you find profound or funny or expresses an idea concisely. Provide short summary why you posted it. Include an attribution (to the best of your knowledge) of who said it. The quote doesn't need to be a famous person and could even be from a Topix post!

For example:

"No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength" - Helmuth von Moltke the Elder

Also known as "No battle plan survives contact with the enemy." This is true for any project plans you have - whether it's project at work or remodeling your kitchen to running routine errands as there's always something issue that crops up.

And off we go!

True Humor must always lie under the Check of Reason, and it requires the Direction of the nicest Judgement, by so much the more as it indulges itself in the most boundless Freedoms. In short, it must consist in a pleasantry deriv'd from Nature, in Vivacity and Mirth without Affectation, bounded by Truth, and supported by good Sense.

oh sorry.
It's in a book that focusses on caligraphy and penmanship while using ancient examples. The title of the book is "The Universal Penman" engraved by Gearge Bickham london 1743. It's the awsomest.:)

Again in the Universal Penman:

"a friend should always like a Friend indite,
Speak as he thinks, and as he thinks should write,
Searching for Faults, as he would Beauties find,
To Friendship true, but not to Justice blind."

That perches in the Soul
And sings the tunes without the words
And never stops at all.
