Although not meant in this mundane way, quote one and two are very appropriate for the slippery conditions here.

Quotes three and four could have severely shortened a paper I had to write a long time ago.

I like all the quotes, gives me food for thought.
anneliese, you may think of your actions as mundane, but I think they fit the quotes perfectly.
Thanks for the quotes, Don.
