More memorable quotations

Another find when I cleaned the closets this summer: a page of quotations from Forbes magazine in the 1980s. Here's a few:

"Perfection of means and confusion of goals seem, in my opinion, to characterize our age." ~ Albert Einstein

"Nothing ages people like not thinking." ~ Christopher Morley

"It is better to create than to be learned; creating is the true essence of life." ~ Reinhold Neibuhr

"It is always with the best intentions that the worst work is done." ~ Oscar Wilde

"The constructive loafer uses his mind during the act of loafing, but he does not try to control his mind. In other words, loafing is educated day-dreaming. I do not plead for more loafing. I defend a reasonable amount of honest loafing as a tonic that is good for the body, mind, and spirit." ~ William Feather

Now I'm going to go do some loafing today. Maybe with scrapbooking products near me...

Oh I like that last one. That's pretty much my understanding of "leisure time", which, yes, includes scrapbooking for me.
