OverHeard OverSeen OverRead

The occasional overheard remark is like a story untold.  Taken out of context - and placed into a context all its own -- one can imagine whole adventures, distinctive people, heretofore unseen places.  The following are a miscellaney of comments I've noted online.

It’s like I’m finally growing up!
But not really

 like a 16 year old.
I am going to hang on to that for
as long as I can though.

"If television's a babysitter,
the Internet is a drunk librarian
who won't shut up."

Dorothy Gambrell (Cat and Girl Volume I)

no proud man wants to hear.


I doubt that the imagination can be suppressed.
If you truly eradicated it in a child,
he would grow up to be an eggplant.

Ursula K. Le Guin
