From the vast treasure trove of Andy Rooney quotes, gleaned from a variety of online sources:
"Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don't need to be done."
"Don't rule out working with your hands. It does not preclude using your head."
"Making duplicate copies and computer printouts of things no one wanted even one of in the first place is giving America a new sense of purpose."
"If dogs could talk it would take a lot of the fun out of owning one."
"I'm already suspicious of anyone who thinks he or she is smart enough to be president. You'd have to have some ego to believe that about yourself.
"I didn't get old on purpose. It just happened. If you're lucky, it could happen to you."
Andy Rooney, "60 Minutes" commentator, a legend of comedic journalism, died this week at age 92.
Comrade in Arms, Defender of the Wry Wit and Keeper of the Steady Pen, King of the Curmudgeons and, last but not least, the Absolute Master of the Understatement.
Rest in peace.
