“Give up on trying to be original. Every song has been sung, every picture has been painted, and every story has been told. The best one can do is sing, draw, or tell it again well.”
Evan Mandery, Q

“I have no special desire to go crawl around in caves, but I really like the word [spelunking] and want to use it in conversation. I do a lot of things just to use words I like.”
Evan Mandery, First Contact-Or, It's Later Than You Think

“I also believe, without any supporting evidence, that cats are evil.”
