Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward.
-Vernon Law

It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.
-Agatha Christie

Pain is only bearable if we know it will end, not if we deny it exists.

I'll have to remember number 1. I've been trying to follow that more recently. I have trouble keeping all my thoughts to myself!

Oooh, Agatha Christie! Always very quotable and one of my all-time faves. (I like her autobiographical writings and Mary Westmacott books even more than her whodunits.)
