Nini,
That is one of my all time favorites!

Anita,
I'm familiar with the Mark Twain quote, funny but so true! I haven't seen the Lloyd Alexander quote before. It reminds me of the Name 3 thread in Across the Fence forum.

Both of you,
Thanks for posting!

Here's another.
"When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong."
R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 - 1983)
