Guess This Quote of the Weekend

No googling. My last TNIV goes to the winner. Here it is:
"Humility comes before honor."
The correct answer is not Solomon.

Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation

You're all wrong, but I think Andy and Scott are closer than g-harmony.

Mahaney is probably the best guess, but that's a matter of opinion.

Just to clarify though, the quote was made this weekend.

Proverbs 18:12 NIV

On second thought, I'm pretty sure I'm off on the date :)

Donette,

As difficult as it is to disagree with you, that's not the answer I'm looking for. ;-)

G-Harmony said...

Ummm...

Lloyd Carr hoping for better things next year?

Troy Smith to Chris Fowler

Kofi Annan?

Paul said...

Barak Obamma

Ben said...

No right answers yet, but a couple of you are just stunningly close. Well actually, one of you is stunningly close, and another couldn't possibly be more wrong if you tried, but you're so wrong that you kinda seem close, if that makes any sense.

Ben said...

I'll post the correct answer this afternoon sometime if no one gets it.

Andy Efting said...

Can I guess twice? Hillary Clinton.

Jim Tressel!!!

greg456 said...

Tressel in '08!

Ben said...

Congrats to Greg. Jim Tressel is correct. He quoted Proverbs 18:12 at the Heisman Trophy presentation ceremony in response to the question, "What have you learned from Troy Smith?"

Ben said...

Good thing there's no restriction in the fine print against family winning the prize. All right if I just bring it with me next week, Greg?

greg456 said...

You're not going to wrap it and pass it off as a Christmas gift, are you?

Ben said...

The thought had crossed my mind.

PinkAngel said...

Oddly enought, I would have actually known that since I was glued to the TV during the Heisman presentation. But I haven't read your blog in about a week - sorry Ben!

Paul said...

Certainly an appropriate reference. Troy Smith is refreshingly humble. I hope they beat Florida by 30!

Ok, call me blonde, but was that note about the correct answer not being Solomon there from the beginning? 'Cause if so, my answer looks really dumb. I wish I could blame my failing eyesight, but last visit to optomotrist said everything is good. There goes my rule about only commenting on blogs if I have something REALLY good to say!

Ben said...

Donette,

You are no blonde, but it was there. Don't let that stop you though.
