– Sydney J. Harris
Beth (ksbeth) at I Didn’t Have My Glasses On… posted this quote today. Sydney J. Harris, whose column appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times (and, before then, the Chicago Daily News) for years, is one of my favorite columnists, as I’ve mentioned here before, and some of his best columns were nothing more than collections of aphorisms like the one above. He passed away in 1986, and since then his books (mostly collections of his columns) have gone out of print, but check your library or used bookstores for them. You’ll be glad you did.
One-Line Wednesday is hosted by Linda Hill. She has the rules and pingbacks from the others here.
