Toady's tidbits for today /  Don't skip breakfast! Start the day with some food for thought.
Words to keep
"We have always known that heedless self-interest was bad morals; we know now that it is bad economics." —Franklin D. Roosevelt (1937)
English language
The following remark looks like nonsense: "That that is is that that is not is not that is it is it not". However, we can make sense of it by adding punctuation (commas, periods, etc.): "That that is, is. That that is not, is not. That is it, is it not?" (Meaning: "If a thing exists, it exists. If a thing does not exist, it does not exist. That is the point, isn't it?") It's a philosophical remark.
