Re: Inspire us with your fav quote

A paraphrase of Tom Waits ("The large print giveth and the small print taketh away") from "Step Right Up".

Which is a riff on the Biblical quote "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away"...

Except it's not a real quote from any known Bible--that much archaism is a bit much even for the King James, where the relevant bit from Job 1:21 is "the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away."
