Bettie Good one! and I would have to agree with the sentiment. How about this

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."

Oscar Wilde
Irish dramatist, novelist, & poet (1854 - 1900)

:O)


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Or (by the same author): "Be yourself -- everybody else is already taken!" :)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Likewise ... btw, did I ever tell you that I love your collection of quotes here on GR? And NOT just for the quotes as such! :)

Love that Wilde epigram a lot, too, incidentally. Probably for the same reason ...

hah - I didn't realise other folk peeked at quotes, not having had the idea (doh!) to peek at the choices of others. However, I can see that you have guessed that each and every single one of the few I have has been mulled over and picked with absolute care and precision to represent my view of life.

Now I shall view the quotes of others, you have taught me that much

Thankee TA
