Quotes of the Day

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” Attributed to Einstein but probably not actually said by him.  Yes, I actually researched this and I can’t find a source for this one.
