Say What?

Who said what:

1. If we fail to anticipate the unforeseen or expect the unexpected in a universe of infinite possibilities, we may find ourselves at the mercy of anyone or anything that cannot be programmed, categorized or easily referenced.

2. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.

3. Some people are born mediocre, some people achieve mediocrity, and some people have mediocrity thrust upon them.

4. Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants.

5. There are two mistakes people usually make when it comes to the devil: one is not to believe in him at all; the other is to believe in him too much.

6. History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.

7. Diane, 10:03 am, Great Northern Hotel. Sheriff Truman and I have just been with the one-armed man or what's left of him. In another time, another culture he may have been a seer, a shaolin priest. In our world he's a shoe salesman and lives among the shadows.
