One liners: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of bureaucracy over common sense is that good engineers should do nothing." Roger Ford, paraphrase of Edmund Burke | "If you want a description of our age, here is one: the civilisation of means without ends." Richard Livingstone | "I'd rather be a failure at something I enjoy than a success at something I hate." George Burns | "I once met a Yorkshireman who said: "I'm only rude to the people I like." Terry Wogan "We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy — sun, wind and tide ... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that." Thomas Edison (1931).  | More
