Thanks to the A.Word.A.Day e-mail list for these two fantastic quotes (though I would have said the Laub one a little differently to avoid the somewhat jarring repetition of “head”):

If a man would register all his opinions upon love, politics, religion, learning, etc., beginning from his youth and so go on to old age, what a bundle of inconsistencies and contradictions would appear at last! – Jonathan Swift, satirist (1667-1745)

Crown: A headgear that makes the head superfluous. – Gabriel Laub, author (1928-1998)
