Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity

The engineer breaks a large problem into many small problems, each of which he can solve. The bureaucrat rolls many small problems together into one large problem which no one can solve.

Engineering is the implementation of science. Politics is the implementation of faith.

The world will only end once. All other downturns are merely buying opportunities.

A stupid idea looks exactly like a brilliant idea, right up until the moment that it fails.

One friend of mine was waxing eloquently about his colonoscopy. Another looked at him and said "so, did they find your head up there?".

Old is 99.

The smell of greed has an undeniable stench.

Follow the money [to understand why people act the way they do].

Love is love, business is business.

The best way to win a game of tug o' war is to drop the rope [and watch 'em fall on their butts].

Sometimes the best response is no response.
