One damned thing after another

Life is just one damned thing after another.

Elbert Hubbard
US author (1856 – 1915)

This quote popped to mind as I was thinking about how to describe why sequence learning is a fundamental cognitive operation.  Life is sequential!

I had to google it to figure out who said it.  I didn’t actually recognize the name, but he’s an awesome quote machine (via quotationspage.com).  And an interesting life story, too (Wikipedia link).

I’m still unsure how I knew the quote, but the author’s name seems completely unfamiliar.  I recognized a lot of his other quotes as well.
