Working without the right tool and what-ever-you-need is bad timing in a black hole....”
-Acquaintance (who only worked with the correct toy for any given chore.)

It wasn't until late in life that I discovered how easy it is to say
"I don't know." -Somerset Maugham

I remember being late to class again.
Running into the room I hear an announcement of the ‘pillow test’.
“Today you will either sleep or take the test. But sooner or later you will have to take the test.”
Presently, the bell rings and everyone leaves as a new group of students queue up to file in - some wanting the test, others wanting pillows.

Three o'clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do. -Jean-Paul Sartre

Repartee is something we think of twenty-four hours too late.
-Mark Twain

Happy TT!

  5. Some memorable quotes. So many times the take on this week's theme comes back to the confluence of too early and too late. Happy TT

  15. I'm just wondering if that ice cream cone qualifies for the 3-second rule... or is it too late?

  16. JeffScape... I always thought it was the 30 second rule. ???

  17. Noooooooo! Only 3! Some cultures allow 5, but a lot can happen in 2 seconds!

  19. Ahhh Jean Paul is making a big impression today! Loved the visit...even if it was a little late...but then again is it ever too late to read a post or post a post?
