    “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."
    -Mark Twain

  17. These are great Sandee ~~ LOL on most.

    I believe this one, at least the first part. The second I have no experience that I know of (I did get invited to try out for Mensa on a date one time in my third life): Schopenhauer's
    Talent hits a target no one else can hit;
    Genius hits a target no one else can see.

  23. Mr. Hodgson is absolutely correct. Often times the truth must be believed before it can be seen.
