Shelf Quotations

Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana.
Bill Gates

There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.
Frank Zappa

Ideas have a short shelf life. You must act on them before the expiration date.
John C. Maxwell

It's like a jar of salad dressing sitting on a shelf... most of the seasoning settles to the bottom of the bottle. But when you shake that bottle up, all the ingredients mix together and then the dressing can add flavor to a salad. In the same way, we can stir ourselves up and regain the reverence, respect and awe we once had for the Lord.
Joyce Meyer

Books are like imprisoned souls till someone takes them down from a shelf and frees them.
Samuel Butler
