Some Brilliant Thoughts

I discovered these books of “Brilliant Thoughts” by Ashleigh Brilliant (real name) and was wondering if anyone else is familiar with this strange and funny guy. The books (published in 1979 and 1980) are filled with his thoughts and the accompanying illustrations. Some sample thoughts, besides the cover thoughts:

“What makes the universe so hard to comprehend is that there’s nothing really to compare it with.”

“If only I could get that wonderful feeling of accomplishment without having to accomplish anything.”

Thoughts perfect for an Optimist in Dreamland like myself.
