Well maybe not quite a million but he has a few. Like, "One thing about a pair of glasses, they make a guy look more intelligent than he really is." I'm not so sure about that one. How intelligent can you be when you walk out of the glasses store after being suckered into spending $700 for reading glasses (and a pair of sunglasses I didn't need) that I could have bought at London Drugs for 20 bucks. What a knob--but they're Ray Bans..
Anyway, another one of his classics is, "The harder you try not to think about bananas, all you end up thinking about is bananas all weekend." The apple definitely doesn't fall very far from the tree because I've suffered from obsessive, scary and unwanted thoughts most of my life and for me that saying is absolutely true. To put it in the modern vernacular which I found in this article, "Trying hard not to think about something almost guarantees that it will pop up in your consciousness." There was also a book written about the topic that I should probably pick up..
Which brings me to another thought, "Maybe every thought I ever had was wrong".. Most of them anyway.
