"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
A man who thinks his work beneath him is above doing it well.
I've long forgotten who it's attributed to - anyone know?
was made famous by John Lennon at the time of his Yogic inspirations. Wish I could back that up, though.
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.
95% of this game is half mental. - Yogi Berra
Although I prefer this version: 90% of this game is perspiration. The other half is all mental.
