A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit, and a pebble in the hand of a fool. -Joseph Roux

I asked for, and received, Webster's Quotationary for Christmas, and I thought this might be a fun thing to do with it. It won't be a quote a day necessarily, and once I go back to work, it won't even necessarily be a quote a week. But every so often, I'll pick a quote from the book on a different subject and then post my thoughts on someone else's thought. Hopefully this will turn out to be, if not a collection of diamonds, then not pebbles either.

So, my thoughts on this thought. It seems to me that it's akin to the idea that you can prove anything with statistics. I've found in researching various child-related subjects that if you look hard enough, you can find an expert who agrees with your view, regardless of what said view is.

That is all.
