Quote of the day

The early bird catches the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese

The earliest dated instance of this type of joke located by QI appeared in December 1994 in a message posted to the Usenet distributed discussion system in a newsgroup called alt.buddha.short.fat.guy. The saying was freestanding without attribution, and it was surrounded by ornamental text. (Quote Investigator)

Note: There are no (or few) absolutes) This quote reminds me of the stories in the tech world about "first mover advantage;" First mover advantage has been a big benefit for a lot of startups over the years and a lot of startups have also floundered and sunk making way for the second start-up.
