    To play, post a no brainer quote or link to a meme quote.

    George Bernard Shaw: If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

    You gotta see. Because if you can't see, you don't know what you're looking at.

    The worst thing about our problems is that they are not of other people's business.

    Don't ask me that please - I don't understand well enough.

    "It ain't over 'til it's over." -- Yogi Berra

    In July 1973, Berra's Mets trailed the Chicago Cubs by 9½ games in the National League East. The Mets rallied to win the division title on the final day of the season.

    "It's déjà vu all over again." -- Yogi Berra

    Berra explained that this quote originated when he witnessed Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris repeatedly hit back-to-back home runs in the Yankees' seasons in the early 1960s.

    I don't know and I don't care are the main problems with ignorance and apathy.

    You can't teach an old dog to be young.

    You can't instill wisdom. You can help develop wisdom through planting the seeds (challenges) and the nutrients (pathways to solutions) and motivation (an electric cow prod works just fine).

    Maybe here meme comes from the French même = same

    I would interpret it as: Do you identify yourself with that?

    But one of my favorite French expressions is:
    Quand même (approx. usage as this is an extremely versatile expression) = Quand même, I can't believe it! / I am not brave but will do it, quand même. / Quand même, how could you ever have thought of doing that? etc.. etc..

    Pardon me, but I love the French language. I love languages in general.
