My mother was never quite the font of wisdom, though she regurgitated what she thought were sagacious phrases on occasion. My mother said none of what follows.
"All that glitters is not gold; all who wander are not lost" - Name that quote!! (Most certainly not my mother.)
"Every single little decision we make can possibly change the outcome of all the rest of our lives." - Me.
"By all I know of natural law, quantum physics and magick, I should be able to pass my hand through this table by sheer force of will alone!! (whammo!!!) Owowowowowoww!!!!"
