Heard this years ago, and came across it a few years back, but I can'r remember who it is usually attributed to. It goes something like this: "If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again, if it still doesn't work then give up, there's no sense being a damned fool about it!"

Bailey's second law; There is no relationship between the three virtues of intelligence, education, and wisdom.

You fiend! Never have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity! Have you ever considered a career in the Church? - The Bishop of Bath and Wells, Blackadder II

WC Fields:
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.
I like Larry Kersten's:
Winners never quit and quitters never win, but those who never win AND never quit are idiots.

Thanks Dave, and I like Kersten's too!
