Wednesday wordplay: Margaret Cho, Jim Henson and Dilbert


The fact is, sometimes it’s hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.
            — Jenny Bicks, Sex and the City, A Woman’s Right To Shoes, 200

When people think the world of you, be careful with them.
            — Margaret Cho, Margaret Cho Blog, 09-26-05

When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in this world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better for my having been here. It’s a wonderful life and I love it.
            — Jim Henson, It’s Not Easy Being Green And Other Things to Consider

Frankly, I知 suspicious of anyone who has a strong opinion on a complicated issue.
            — Scott Adams, The Dilbert Blog
