Deep(er) Thoughts

Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what it has done for you lately.

Absence makes the heart go flounder.

Better to marry than be bored.

Better to divorce than to bore.

Love is a game where practice never makes perfect (unlike Russian Roulette).

Alcohol is a gift for the mediocre.

Reality TV is performance art as practiced by amateurs.

Technology is a fashion statement.

No city is worth living in if you are forced to enjoy it by car.

Whines get bitter with age.

The best-looking cafés serve the worst coffee.

If the shoe fits, put on the other one.

Well, I can't help it.

    Some real gems here, Kendall! I have to consider whether this one "Love is a game where practice never makes perfect (unlike Russian Roulette)." couldn't also be "(much like Russian Roulette)" LOL great list. Well done!
