The Frictionary # 200

Here is another page taken from The Frictionary which celebrates today its 200th edition:

1906. Success goes to your head, failure to your heart. (L.J. Peter)

1907. Terror walks about on legs of velvet
Hiding in the recesses of the room
It crawls with the encroaching shadows
Taking aim at the darkening heart
It gains its night quarters. (Anne Hébert)

1908. A critic is a man who expects miracles. (James Gibbons Huneker)

1909. I never vote for anyone. I always vote against. (W.C. Fields)

1910. Happiness and desire can never be found together. (Epictetus)

1911. How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young. (Paul Sweeney)

1912. Memory, like salvation through death, often works only to serve oneself. (Andy Young)

1913. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced you'll never be promoted. (?)

1914. It's not the fault that produces remorse, it's the penalty. (Jean Dutourd)

1915. I have done my best. That is about all the philosophy of living one needs. (Lin Yutang)
