Graveyard of Slightly Relevant Quotes & Aphorisms

A collection of quotes usually appearing on the home page of this blog that, in my sole and unappealable opinion, should be preserved for posterity. This post will be added to sporadically at whim. Amusing and slightly relevant contributions are welcome by e-mail at epicureandealmaker [at] hushmail [dot] com.

I will make an effort to confirm the authenticity and attribution of these quotes, but I promise you it will not be strenuous. My sources are various in kind and authority, and will include—gasp!—the internet. I am sure you can handle it.

"Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and it annoys the pig."

"There are certain sins for which even your death will not atone."
Investment Banking MD, briefing an Associate on a deal

"There are many people for whom 'thinking' necessarily means identifying with existing trends."
attributed to Marshall McLuhan
