tomorrow

Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia!

Author Unknown, anonymous internet quiz

The line is attributed to Charles Schultz, but it’s actually a paraphrase of one of his 1980 Peanuts comics:

Peppermint Patty: What if the world comes to an end tonight, Marcie?…
Marcie: I promise there’ll be a tomorrow…it’s already tomorrow in Australia!

Charles Schultz, Peanuts (1980)*

partially insane

Let us consider that we are all partially insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles; it will make clear and simple many things which are involved in haunting and harassing difficulties and obscurities now…All Democrats are insane, but not one of them knows it; none but the Republicans and Mugwumps know it. All the Republicans are insane, but only the Democrats and Mugwumps can perceive it. The rule is perfect: in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.

Mark Twain,  “Christian Science” (1907)
