Quotes of the Day for 10 October 2000 – Rain

It was a dark and dismal day today, we learned what "rain fade" means in satellite television. (It means you watch tapes.) Try as I might, nothing else came to mind for today's theme. Fortunately for you, I've only got enough Rain quotes for a week, and a long winter to spread them over.

The quotes:

Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
     - Susan Ertz.

As against having beautiful workshops, studios, etc., one writes best in a cellar on a rainy day.
     - Van Wyck Brooks

If you don't go fishing because you thought it might rain you will never go fishing. This applies to more than fishing.
     - Gary Sow

Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the roar of its many waters.
     - Frederick Douglass
