2. All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: _____.
Well, I looked this up because the quote intrigued me more than the comedy I might conceive.
Surprise, it was the screenwriter's friend, Aristotle who said, "All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire."
And this: "Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts."

What was that? I've noticed lately that I'll begin a nice story and by the time I get to the end of the story, and my audience is waiting expectantly for the point, I've forgotten what it was.

What was the question?
Actually, I looked this one up too. This has been the most fun meme, I've ever encountered.
"The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time." Friedrich Nietzsche.
Who would have thought old Nietzsche had that thought in him. And how right he was.
