January Blog Quote of the Day

It's been awhile since I've slightly altered famous quotes, and if you recall, by popular acclaim I suggested that perhaps I could make this bit of humor a regular feature. Too soon, I realized that just wasn't going to happen but every so often I come across a fun series of quotes. As I like to keep my readership happy, and as many of my regular readers are bloggers themselves, well, I hope these bits of self-deprecating but all-too-truthful humor bring a little brightness to you day.

Without further ado, here are some more clever commentaries about blogging thanks to (real) authors:

Bloggers are easy to get on with - if you like children
~ inspired by Michael Joseph (1897-1958)

I post blogs because it's a way of making statements I can disown, and I tweet because dialogue is the most respectable way of contradicting myself.
~ inspired by Tom Stoppard

A blogger is a lucky person who has found a way to discourse without being interrupted.
~ inspired by Charles Poore 

A blog is never finished, only abandoned.
~ inspired by Paul Valery 

Immature bloggers imitate; mature bloggers steal
~ inspired by T.S. Eliot

Finishing a blog post is just like you took a child out in the back yard and shot it. 
~  inspired by Truman Capote

Too many blogs finish too long after the end.
~ inspired by Igor Stravinsky

I like Capote's quote. I've got dead bodies stacked up behind my house...

How could anyone forget this passage, according to St. John... ?

3 Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle.
4 They said to him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery.
5 Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?"
6 They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to blog on the ground with his finger.
7 But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."
8 Again he bent down and blogged on the ground.
9 And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders. So he was left alone with the woman before him.

Blogs can be powerful!
