All the pessimists in world history are nothing against reality.”   —   Elias Canetti


(I couldn’t find this quotation as written.  It’s missing a fairly superfluous word in “together”.  Here is the quote as I’m seeing it:  “All the pessimists in world history together are nothing against reality.”  I guess somebody made an executive decision.  It’s kind of a strange quote, anyway.  What does outlook, one way or the other, have to do with reality?  Unless that’s kind of the point.  Might as well be an optimist.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I have no idea why Zemanta brought up this magazine cover from the ’50s, as part of it’s Media Gallery offerings, but I’m never averse to a little cheesecake!  So . . . enjoy!   —   YUR

Of all the words in all languages I know, the greatest concentration is in the English word “I”.”   —   Elias Canetti

(Of all his quotes I like this one the least.  Other languages don’t use their equivalent of “I” as English does?  Hmm!  Pat Sajak‘s 65th birthday, today.  Why does Pat Sajak fear Uncle Rave???  Can I buy an I, Pat?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
