Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

"It seemed to me that the people who made the rules of the road had figured out everything that would help a person drive safely right down to having a sign that tells you you're passing through a place where deer cross. Somebody should stick up some signs on the highway of life.

    CAUTION: JERKS CROSSING.
    Blinking yellow lights when you are about to do something stupid.
    Stop signs in front of people who could hurt you.
    Green lights shining when your doing the right thing.
    It would make the whole experience much easier."

                              --Joan Bauer, Rules of the Road   (G.P. Putnam, 1998)
