A Few Quotes

From John Updike in 1992 describing writing book reviews:
“Knitting and purling at these reviews seems to be harder work for me than it used to be; we feel like field mice painstakingly weaving our little nests while the shadows of the hawks swirl all around us.” HT Richard Francis.

“If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.”(Anonymous as far as I know).

In perhaps the same vein: “Blaming Darwin for evolution is like blaming Einstein for gravity.” — Carel Pieter Brest van Kempen.
