Check out: "Herb Stein's Unfamiliar Quotations: On money, madness, and making mistakes." in Slate, May 16, 1997.

If you meet a madman who says that he is a fish and that we are all fishes, do you take off your clothes to show him that you do not have fins?

--Milan Kundera, Risibles Amours, 1984
Honesty may not be the best policy, but it is worth trying once in a while.

--Richard Nixon, in a meeting, 1970
If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.

--Stein's Law, first pronounced in the 1980s
