Is this from Doug or Michael O'Donoghue? · posted 2000 by Mark Leffler
I'm not certain, but I believe the quote may be attributed to Michael O'Donoghue, who also wrote for the Lampoon in the early 1970's. It sounds more like MO'D than DCK. Doug's sayings were more along the lines of "There is no free brunch" and "You've got to roll with the bullets". As I say, I'm not sure what the source of the quote is. It may have been from an article, or it could be an oft repeated witticism. Would be interested in what others know or think.

Most people marry because of lonliness. What else can we do if we're not successful to love ourselves enough to bear being with ourselves. Alone but not lonely is way out of reach for many of us
The quote a fake? · posted 2000 by Johannes Hamre

Who is John Winsett? · posted 2000 by Frank A
Does anybody know who John Winsett (to whom the amusing quote above is attributed) actually is?
Does anyone know the background or story behind (pardon the pun) the quote?

Who is Carl Zwanzig? Is there any biographical info on this author anywhere?
What do you think of Harry Truman? · posted 2000 by Catalina Espino
Harry Truman... A president very much criticized and hated. What´s your opinion? When I think about this man I always imagine what would our world have turned in if He hadn´t done what he did. Specifically, if he had let thousands of US soldiers go to Japan and try to invade that land. How many more casualties would we have had?? Any comments?

Wow · posted 2000 by John
Wow, I'm the first one to write in here well, maybe I can start some convo. Me, personally, I tend to be more cynical of love, at least the idea of love as some great, grand, all consuming thing. People try to hard to find this "love" thing, and they can't. Or if they do, it's the kind where if you see them and hear them talk about it, you want to punch them in the face. Hate, well, I don't know about everyone else, but I like hating sometimes. They say hate will consume you from the inside out, but honestly, it makes me feel good. Well, time to see if i can post this and stir some people into discussion.....
memories from yesterday · posted 2000 by Salvatore Spadaccino
Do not carry thoughts of the past. They seem only to hold us back until the end, where then they are the decisions that will grade us. So maybe yes, carry them with you always,but remember your life before them, for thats what we all strive for after the end.

Humour · posted 2000 by Mike
I used ' his ' quotation in a small selection of aphorisms in a church newsletter under the simple heading quoteable quotes. The quote was - ' It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle if it is lightly greased. I thought it was interesting / amusing etc.
Only after I'd printed the newsletter for circulation did I really see the real joke.
