Do you know Will Rogers? If you don't, you still might be familiar with many of his quotes (and those attributed to him because they sound like something he would say). For instance: Everything is funny, as long as it's happening to somebody else. Or, Be it pestilence, war, or famine, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The poor even help arrange it. Many of his thoughts were timeless, which is why they stick with us.
