I have no idea who Roger H. Lincoln was. There is nothing on Wikipedia on him. When I google him, I do find an old picture of a bespeckled man in a military uniform. I don’t know if he was successful, and if he was – in what? Maybe he succeeded in staying incognito – thus had great success in incognitoness. I don’t even know if the quote is accredited to the right name. I don’t really care.
I keep returning to this quote, I reuse it on my facebook quite often. It doesn’t move me in a profound way. In fact, I don’t like the so called profound quotes that inhabit every wall on facebook, as they are completely meaningless, and un-funny. I like my quote. Because it tickles my funny bone. Every time I post it, someone will ask what the other, blank rule is. They don’t get it. And that is funny.
