"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans". John Lennon

My understanding is that this is of Indian origin and was made famous by John Lennon at the time of his Yogic inspirations. Wish I could back that up, though.

Here's one of my many favourite quotations:

It would indeed be a tragedy if the history of the human race proved to be nothing more than the story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a petrol dump. Lord Harlech

My favourite:

A man who thinks his work beneath him is above doing it well.

I've long forgotten who it's attributed to - anyone know?

Lennon did not originate it, although you're right that he's the one who made it famous.

I came across that quote in book of quotations that was copyrighted in the 1950's. I don't remember the name of the book or the editor but it was in the public library in Souris, Manitoba when I lived there.

Hi weeks,

Yes, one that many of us should remember more often, even the ingrained-G-haters at WW!

My version of your quote is a bit more like: "Believe cock-up over conspiracy every time and you'll mainly be right."
