These fact resistant humans may not leave too many generations of descendants after them.

I always like to see credit given. The line “I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.” is from Lily Tomlin’s one-woman show The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, written by her partner in life and art Jane Wagner. My wife and I were lucky to see Tomlin perform that extraordinary show back in the 80s in Los Angeles, where we were visiting friends. Tomlin is often credited for the line, but credit really should go to Wagner.

That's a fact moreover I have yet to come up with an original quote that might be remembered after I've gone the way of all flesh but nonetheless I like that quote and this one is another one of my favorite's. If there is such a thing as reincarnation and it happens to me my dumb luck I'd come back as myself.
There are just so many wonderful quotes out there, Groucho Marx, I refuse to be a member of any group that would have me as a member and on and on and on. Peace, out
