I love going to www.addall, not just to look up books, but also for the little quote boxes they include at the top of the page.

This one was too good to pass up, given our current world situation:

War: first, one hopes to win;
then one expects the enemy to lose;
then one is satisfied that he too is suffering;
in the end, one is surprised that everyone has lost.
--Karl Kraus

Meaning

A feminist slogan, suggesting that men are superfluous to women's needs.
"A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle"

Origin

fish-bicycleThis slogan is often attributed to Gloria Steinem. Other claims for origination point to Flo (Florynce) Kennedy, or to an anonymous author who painted the slogan on a wall at University of Wisconsin in 1969.

Gloria Steinem had this to say in a letter she wrote to Time magazine in autumn 2000:

    "In your note on my new and happy marital partnership with David Bale, you credit me with the witticism 'A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.' In fact, Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney. She paraphrased the philosopher who said, 'Man needs God like fish needs a bicycle.' Dunn deserves credit for creating such a popular and durable spoof of the old idea that women need men more than vice versa."

Irina Dunn later confirmed Steinem's version of events, in January 2002:

    "Yes, indeed, I am the one Gloria referred to. I was paraphrasing from a phrase I read in a philosophical text I was reading for my Honours year in English Literature and Language in 1970. It was 'A man needs God like a fish needs a bicycle'. My inspiration arose from being involved in the renascent women's movement at the time, and from being a bit if a smart-arse. I scribbled the phrase on the backs of two toilet doors, would you believe, one at Sydney University where I was a student, and the other at Soren's Wine Bar at Woolloomooloo, a seedy suburb in south Sydney. The doors, I have to add, were already favoured graffiti sites."

Foolstrope, why are you so PC? The way we Jews quote that aphorism (is that what it is?) is "Jesus Saves; Moses invests". Based on stereotypes, it makes more sense that way.

I like Harpo Marx's story about war in his autobiography.

Little girl. Daddy,what's a war?

That's when a million men with guns go to a field and meet another million men with guns and they shoot at each other.

Little girl. And what happens if nobody turns up?
