Kellar's (Favorite) Familiar Quotations:

Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.

----Edwin Land Inventor of the Polaroid Camera

" I tried to stop riding once, and I just got depressed. One of the nicest things in the world is to go out and climb a mountain ... look at the scenery ... talk to no one ... freewheel it home. And all of your problems of the day are gone.

-----" Phil Liggett, Outside magazine, July 2004
