Quote: Projects.

Projects 245 "…every man amuses himself with projects which he knows to be improbable, and which, therefore, he resolves to pursue without daring to examine them." Sam. Johnson. 1753. Gross, ed. Oxford Book of Aphorisms.

Comment: The things that people collect would be examples of such projects. I knew a guy who collected baseball hats. Another collected the toy trucks from Hess gasoline stations at Christmas time. He never took them out of the boxes they came in. Another collected model trains that he kept packed neatly away in their original boxes. The list goes on. RayS.
