[ Also see Proverbs ]

If there are two or more ways to do something and one of those results in a catastrophe, then someone will do it that way.
      - Capt. Edward Murphy, Jr.,
        original version of Murphy's Law

Napier's Discovery: In the past 200 years, America has manufactured close to 100 billion pencils--and we still can't keep one by the phone.
      - Arch Napier

Olivier's Creed: Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
      - Laurence Olivier

Never do card tricks for the group you play poker with.
      - Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull,
        The Peter Principle

Percussive Sublimation is the promotion of an incompetent employee to a "higher" position which brings on no new responsibility but unclogs the rest of the hierarchy. This is known as kicking someone upstairs. Hierarchiology tells us that every thriving organization will be characterized by this accumulation of deadwood at the excutive level, consisting of percussive sublimatees and potential candidates for percussive sublimation.
      - Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull,
        The Peter Principle

The Lateral Arabesque is another pseudo-promotion. Without being raised in rank--sometimes without even a pay raise--the incompetent employee is given A NEW AND LONGER TITLE and is moved to an office in a remote part of the building. . . . so we see that percussive sublimation and lateral arabesques can serve to keep the drones out of of the hair of the workers.
      - Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull,
        The Peter Principle

Historian's Rule: Any event, once it has occurred, can be made to appear inevitable by a competent historian.
      - Lee Simonson

Those whose approval you seek the most give you the least.
      - Rozanne Weissman
