Said by Hamlet, written by William Shakespeare

That's why they call it expendable.

I'm stumped by expendable, too.

So I'll offer another one that will probably be even more obscure:

It's a small mind that can think of only one way to spell a word!

I'm stumped by the spelling one.

The expendable one is Expendable by Susan Matthews. Warning, this author is a sick puppy, so read a little if you're considering buying any of her books...

Spelling one: Thomas Jefferson.

What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?

Izzat rite? I don't see Expendable on the bibliography list for Susan R. Matthews at http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/authors/Susan_R_Matthews.htm although I did find a couple of references to her "Expendable" series on discussion boards.

Whoops! it's Expendable by James Alan Gardner.

On the other hand, Susan R. Matthews does have a new book out. Unfortunately, we have the rest of the series in paperback and the new one is hardcover. It's the Jurisdiction series, and those are the books I was thinking about when I made the sick puppy comment.

"Dare Mighty Things" - Theodore Roosevelt, speaking at the Hamilton Club in 1899

A day like today is not a day for sound bites really. We can leave those at home. But I feel the hand of history on our shoulder.

Another - by the same person - as the first is somewhat not well known:

People. Of Britain.

or even:

People. Of. This bus stop.

Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they're eating sandwiches.

George Carlin

I went into a McDonald's yesterday and said, "I'd like some fries." The girl at the counter said, "Would you like some fries with that?"
