Aphorisms again

I am writing an article on the immunodeficiency of CLL so I have little time for blogging, but here is my latest collection of aphorisms:

Hanging is too good for a man who makes puns; he should be drawn and quoted. - Fred Allen

Gratifying their desires has brought misery to millions.

I believe in getting into hot water – it keeps you clean. – GK Chesterton

If we forget that the newspapers are footnotes to Scripture and not the other way round, then we will be afraid to get out of bed in the morning. – Eugene Peterson

Politicians are like baby’s diapers; they should be changed frequently; and for much the same reason.

You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, and that's actually good enough. – PT Barnum

The Devil’s most dangerous weapon is not his poison but his ice-cream.

A gold medal’s a wonderful thing; but if you can’t live without one, you won’t be able to live with one.

A good question to ask your physician: Are you doing this for me, doc, or am I doing it for you?

‘With all my worldly goods I thee endow’ means that if it comes to a divorce there are no assets to divide; you have already given yours away.
