- Virginia Wolfe

When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.
- Mark Twain

A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.
- Robert Frost

Got an instant knockout with what Swift and Grier have said, but honestly they all sounded sweet! Now all I have to do is wait, until the product of waiting dawns upon me, and then I shall wait again for another year. Phew!
