I've been thinking of starting this topic for a while.  Let's see how it goes....

Asked if he was in charge of the nation, in the absence of the Prime Minister -
Mr Clegg told Metro: ‘Yeah, I suppose I am. I forgot about that.

There has certainly been an outbreak of peace and harmony. I have no doubt that conclusions will be drawn..... Long may it continue.

"My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already."

Professor Stephen Hawkins -

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.’

I was watching a programme on Armegeddon the other day and they quoted Robert Oppenheimer when he saw the results of one of the test explosions. "Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds" He was quoting from the Bhagavad Gita.

"No form of organisation is so reticent and elusive as a trade organisation"

T S Ashton in 'Iron and Steel in the Industrial Revolution'. He was talking about bodies like manufacturer's associations.

The classic quote on this subject is from Adam Smith  (1723 - 1790)

"People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”

The evidence in the CHSC minutes all points that way. There was constant warfare between the Manufacturer's Association and the room and power companies. In the end they formed their own association!

Belle, I have my own version of that one, used it only the other day talking with my daughter. "Never, ever, underestimate the capacity of human beings to be totally stupid." I'm not claiming I invented it, I may have picked it up somewhere along the line.

Stanley , you just reminded me of this, from Maarriot Edgar's "The Jubilee Sov'rin".........

"Shall get your money box , Albert  ?"

Said Mother so  coaxing and sweet ,

And Albert let drop an expression

He must have picked up in the street.
