Epitaph ideas

Been working on my epitaph. I like this one.
"Here lies Steve Perryman. He lived life marching to the beat of a different song and it was a song that very few others had ever heard. "
I stole that from this quote from Warren Buffet. He said it about his long time friend and partner, Charlie Munger.
(Charlie) “Marches to the beat of his own music, and it's music like virtually no one else is listening to.”

Alice said it.....

My new favorite quote:

‘‘Sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ― Alice in Wonderland

Never trust rude people...

A good rule of thumb is to never trust anyone who is nice to you but not the waiter or the janitor.

Most unintended consequences are just unanticipated consequences.
