A while back, John Doe created this thread in the Speakeasy, and I thought it was a great idea--it was certainly a lot of fun. Big Grin The premise behind this activity is simple: someone provides a quote, and (optionally) gives the initials of the person who the quote is attributed to. The next person provides the name, then provides a quote of their own.

I suppose I'll start it off with an easy one. Big Grin

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.

And, since Ace of Spades was incorrect in his guess of Malcolm X on my last quote, here it is again:
