Quotes! How I adore them
The interesting words said by men
Some are funny, others witty
And some are absolutely silly

Others talk a lot of sense
About life and our friends
Others are words of advice
Telling us not to fall into vice

Surely they are as varied
As the talk we speak everyday
Yet there’s something about them
That makes them different in some way

Some seem poetic
 In a wistful dreamy way
Others plain and simple
And meant to be that way

But I love the funny ones best
Especially if they are true
Like Niels Bohr telling Einstein
“Don’t tell God what to do!”*

*In reply to Einstein's famous remark, "God does not play dice," Niels Bohr apparently told him, "Einstein! Stop telling God what to do!"
