Quotable Quotes

Just when I though that Joel’s Aristotle quote (”It is the mark of an educated mind to be to able to entertain a thought without accepting it”) was the best quote that I had come across all day, along comes Paul with this gem:—

“Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.”
True that.

It took me a little while to figure out where I had heard this before. Which reminds me, if you haven’t already seen this, you must do so now.
