Print Friendly, PDF & Email

…yet I will post these in a disorganized fashion, not taking into account the fact that I may have posted them before.

I wrote an application for my secondary computer and monitor to scroll through the following sayings. I add to them constantly, so now is a good time to put them here… for the record?

The one I am leaving out of the list is one that I did not come up with, is very well known, and I will have more to say about it at another time. That is, simply, “Don’t try.”

This is what I look at all day long, I am not including the source. That does not matter. Collecting these and looking at these is an obsession—a healthy obsession—of mine:
