Quote of the Day (Humorist P.G. Wodehouse, on How Fate Strikes)

“I'm not absolutely certain of the facts, but I rather fancy it's Shakespeare who says that it's always just when a fellow is feeling particularly braced with things in general that Fate sneaks up behind him with the bit of lead piping.”—British humorist P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975), Carry On, Jeeves (1925)

(The image accompanying this post comes from the 1990s British TV series Jeeves and Wooster, starring a pre-House Hugh Laurie as the clueless wealthy bachelor Bertie Wooster--the kind of fellow forever feeling that Fate "sneaks up behind him"--and Stephen Fry as his indispensable valet Jeeves.)
