    I think we all have some favorites; I know I have a bunch.

    Here is one which is, some might say, typical of me, although I attribute it to William F. Buckley, Jr.:

    A society that seduces the conscience by sweet reason is one thing, but ours is developing into a society that harpoons the conscience and tows it right into the maws of the mother vessel, there to be macerated and stuffed into a faceless can."

    How about some others? I have many more.......

    Indeed

    "It doesn't matter who you vote for, the government always gets in" is a favourite of mine.

    A close second is

    "Whoever said change is inevitable doesn't use our office vending machine"

    I think the first is Gramsci and I suspect the latter is Dilbert.

    Yes, I usually find that after the first flush of enthusiasm it is a law that kicks in with monotonous regularity.

    The one under your avatar always made my blood run cold - not least because it was demonstrably true.
