Quotes of the Day for 21 October 2000 – Decisions

I was staring at the screen, attempting to decide on a theme for today's quotes, when my wife walked up and asked what my theme was going to be. With a whiny tone hovering between despair and exasperation I answered, "I don't know." "Decisions, decisions, decisions," she replied, providing me with my theme. Trying to reach the final decision, getting it down from five good quotes to the final four, I sided with Marilyn Monroe and thought, "What the hell - let 'em have five today."

     - Katharine Butler Hathaway

Ever notice that 'what the hell' is always the right decision?
     - Marilyn Monroe

A decision will be made before it's too late or soon thereafter.
