Quotes about Me

I'm sitting here thinking about what I could possibly say about myself that would be a little bit interesting. At the moment, nothing is coming to mind. I'm sick with a cold and when I'm sick, I think that my brain stops working. If I had to pick one of the quotes below that is really talking to me right now, it would be the one by Robert Redford.

It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself.
 Ralph Ellison

Steve Jobs

Health food may be good for the conscience but Oreos taste a hell of a lot better.” Robert Redford
