The Wisdom of Steven Wright

“They tell you practice makes perfect. Then they tell you no one is perfect. So, I stopped practicing.”

“You can't have everything. Where would you put it?”

“My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted.”

“It doesn't make a difference what temperature a room is, it's always room temperature.”

“Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.”

If you have favorite quotes from him, let me hear them. If you have tickets to see him Friday night at the Warner Theatre, perhaps I’ll see you there.

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it.

Enjoy the show. Yes, I'm jealous.

What's another word for thesaurus?

I was at this restaurant. The sign said "Breakfast Anytime," so I ordered "French Toast in the Renaissance."

I have the world's largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world--perhaps you've seen it.

I'm jealous as well :)

"Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time."

"The other day I... uh, no, that wasn't me."

If you got rid of sponges, would the ocean be deeper?

Me, jealous? Yup.

I was a peripheral visionary. I could see the future, but only way off to the side.

I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.

Have a fabulous time.....I'm a little on the green side as well.

I'm sorry I have no quote, but I love the ones I've read.

Hope you have a splendid time. Fill us in when you get back!

These are three of my favorites:

Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.

Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.

If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

Yep, jealous too! ;-)

Thanks for the intro, I didn't know what I was missing!
