Quotable Quotes: Drilling for Answers

Have you noticed just how impossible it seems to be to get a straight answer to the simple question – how does one determine the fair value of oil?

A few words on answers.

“When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers.”
Oscar Wilde

“I was gratified to be able to answer promptly. I said, "I don't know."”
Mark Twain

“What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, 'This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!' Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, 'Never have I heard anything more divine'?”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“If you ask me a question I don't know, I'm not going to answer it”
Yogi Berra

Have a good weekend.
