A foggy Friday (collection)

“Santa knows Physics: Of all colors, Red Light penetrates fog best. That’s why Benny the Blue-nosed reindeer never got the gig.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson (Twitter December 25 2014)

“I used to be a folk singer, but I was… dreadful. I had a voice like a goose farting in the fog.”

Billy Connolly

“Politicians are like ships: noisiest when lost in a fog.”

Bennett Cerf

“It took Einstein ten years of groping through the fog to get the theory of special relativity, and he was a bright guy.”

James C. Collins

“One can imagine having a procedural rule that anything ambiguous should be treated as the Taj Mahal unless we see that it is labelled “fog”. The motorist replies: “What sort of rule is this? Surely the best guarantee I can have that the fog is fog is if I fail to see the sign saying ‘fog’ because of the fog.””

Michael Frayn

“That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key.”

Elizabeth Wurtzel

“If Charles Lindbergh, flying with no instruments other than a bologna sandwich, managed to cross the Atlantic and land safely on a runway completely covered with French people, why are today’s airplanes, which are equipped with radar and computers and individualized liquor bottles, unable to cope with fog?”

Dave Barry

“Any coward can sit in his home and criticize a pilot for flying into a mountain in a fog. But I would rather, by far, die on a mountainside than in bed. What kind of man would live where there is no daring? And is life so dear that we should blame men for dying in adventure? Is there a better way to die?”

Charles Lindbergh

“The future is a fog that is still hanging out over the sea, a boat that floats home or does not.”

Anne Sexton

“A thin grey fog hung over the city, and the streets were very cold; for summer was in England.”

Rudyard Kipling

“What if, when this fog scatters and flies upward, the whole rotten, slimey city goes with it, rises with the fog and vanishes like smoke.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky

“I am not an expert. That is someone else’s job. If I were expert, the approach would be all wrong. It would be from the inside. I am a blunderer. I usually don’t know what I am going into at the start. I go into the fog and trust something will be there.”

Robert Altman

“How amazing that the language of a few thousand savages living on a fog-encrusted island in the North Sea should become the language of the world.”

Norman St John-Stevas, Baron St John of Fawsley

“Life is a walk in the fog. Most people don’t know that. They’re fooled by the sunlight into thinking they can see what’s ahead. But it’s the reason they are forever getting lost or falling into ditches or committing matrimony.”

Jack McDevitt
