A Quote by Garrison Keillor on truth, dogs, and lake wobegon

Dogs don't lie and why should I?  Strangers come they growl and bark, they know their loved ones in the dark, Now let me, by night or day, Be just as full of truth as they.

Describing what would happen if Minnesota sold Lake Superior: One day Donald Trump will discover that he is owned - lock, stock, and roulette wheel - by the Lutheran Brotherhood and must renegotiate his debt load with a committee of silent Norwegians who don't understand why anyone would pay more than $120 for a suit.

A Quote by Garrison Keillor on trust and wealth

On investments, 1998: Where I'm from we don't trust paper. Wealth is what's here on the premises. If I open a cupboard and see, say, 30 cans of tomato sauce and a five-pound bag of rice, I get a little thrill of well-being - much more so than if I take a look at the quarterly dividend report from my mutual fund.

Life is continuous. Life never stops. We come to the really great questions and before we can answer them, life has moved on to something else.
