Being right
===========
If a man talks and a woman isn't there to hear him, is he still wrong?
Wesley Atkinson

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Comparisons
===========
My wife and I were comparing notes the other day. "I have a higher IQ, did better on my SATs and make more money than you,ý she pointed out. "Yeah, but when you step back and look at the big picture, I'm still ahead," I said. She looked mystified. "How do you figure?" "I married better," I replied.

Scientific power
================
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963

Pollution
=========
There's so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it all.
Robert Orben
