Clog Quotations

Cholesterol does not exist in vegetables. Vegetables do not clog arteries.
Jane Velez-Mitchell

I find my best writing time is actually 6 A.M., before the detritus of the day - the fish fingers and the school uniform and dogs and bills - have had a chance to clog up my brain. I can usually get 500 words done before 7 A.M. But it is difficult, and the Internet, and social networking, are terrible timesucks.

Learned Hand
