i distinctly remember someone on the forum having it in their signature for quite a while. can't remember who, though.

ok, until you come up with another origin, you shall henceforth be credited as the source.

it's a damn good saying, btw. and i've been doing my best to live by it as much as possible.

Some quick googleing says it's a french saying from Quebec, going "Celui qui ne vaut pas une risée ne vaut pas grand chose". No idea about the source though, probably because I don't know the french word for source ;)

There's this Tim Minchin Song called "If you open your mind too much, your brain will fall out" - he mentions that he didn't come up with it, anybody know who did?

The French word for "source" is "source".

You're welcome.

Thanks^^ funny how much words one knows after ten years of french in school, isn't it?

At least it was sufficient for understanding the saying ;)
