|Proverbs, aphorisms, quotations (English)||by Linux fortune|
System of ideas meant to explain something, chosen with a view to
originality, controversialism, incomprehensibility, and how good
it will look in print.
|We prefer to believe that the absence of inverted commas guarantees the|
originality of a thought, whereas it may be merely that the utterer has
forgotten its source.
-- Clifton Fadiman, "Any Number Can Play"
