1) There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no independence quite so important, as living within your means

2) All Man's problems stem from his inability to sit quietly, in a room alone

Speaking of... I got my earthworm book this week (see the "What have you read?" thread). I may get all squirmy on you people.

It reminded me of an adorable little girl who was haranguing her uncle on a lake vacation: "I wanna go to da WORM STORE!". "Why?". "I wanna go fissing!".

"I've seen what you do. That's not fishing, it's worm aviation". Made me smile for days

Or it's the worm that hung out late partying the night before.
