Sitting on my desk at work is a desk calendar with an "inspirational" quote for each day. They're not funny quotes; it's a company-supplied calendar and it's boring, to match the job. Today's quote however gave me pause for thought, though probably not in the way the manufacturers intended:
"The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that's the day you start to the top."
- O.J. Simpson
O.J. Simpson on the topic of taking responsibility. I can't help but wonder if it's the work of some menial underling at the calendar company, resentful at being given the task of hunting down 365 meaningful quotations, who slipped it in as a joke and wondered if anyone would notice.
Or maybe the whole thing's for real. Are there any other absurd-but-true quotations floating around out there?
