Besides G.K. Chesterton, Will Rogers is my favorite quote resource. It's amazing to see how his wisdom is as pertinent today as it was in the 1930s.
Here are a few good obervations of Will's:
* The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.
* Communism is like prohibition, it's a good idea, but it don't work.
* Live in such a way that you wouldn't be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.
* Nothing you can't spell will ever work.
* Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing, and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even.
* If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?
* If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that don't get wet you can keep.
* It's a good thing we don't get all the government we pay for.
* Last year we said, 'Things can't go on like this', and they didn't, they got worse.
* The man with the best job in the country is the vice-president. All he has to do is get up every morning and say, "How is the president?"
* Things in our country run in spite of government, not by aid of it.
* What the country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds.
* When you put down the good things you ought to have done, and leave out the bad ones you did do well, that's Memoirs.
* The worst thing that happens to you may be the best thing for you if you don't let it get the best of you.
