"If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month.”

“There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody’s expense but his own.”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick
Yep, that about sums it up….
