I always thought that quote is from Richard Stienback, or was that John Stienback. From a story call "Of Mice & Men"... For my literature class, it's mice and Romeo & Juliet. Probably the  reason why my English and the grammar still sucks to this day.. Big Grin Big Grin Those works are too artsy for me to learn this language properly. Huh Huh ...

"Best laid schemes of mice & men often goes awry " and "A rose by any other name will smell as sweet..." these two quotes get stuck in my brains ever since my teens.
Yes... you recall well.. Steinbeck's novel was "Of Mice & Men" and the title came from Robbie Burns poem but so to did the big ideas within it...
This is the most eloquent explanation I have seen...
