Anthony Bourdain, on life...

                                  -''In the end, The tail wags the dog'
We too often hear or read quotes by famous people who have done recognizable things and let slip into oblivion the pieces of wisdom that frolic on the tongues of the everyman.
In an effort to counter this trend, I have decided to start what will become a recurring mini-post that I like to call... ''sounds like a quote''

-Helena Francis, on life in oakville and self confidence, (on flight to Barcelona)

                                 -''It's Hard to be mildly attractive in a city full of drug addicts''

-Helena Francis,  in response to my posting of her comment,

                                             -"what is said in the air, should stay there"
-Eleni Albous, on the complexities of social order.

                                          -''socialism... practical, but vulnerable''
