Right, you had a question. Regardless of whether you can find any information on the originator of this quote -- and our hard working staff couldn't find much on Heinrich von Bergen, Heinz von Bergen, Heinrich v. Bergen, or Heinz v. Bergen -- you can use any short quote freely. As we've noted in the past (type "short phrase" or "quotes" into the Search Dear Rich Box, right) copyright doesn't protect short phrases.
PS Dept. If you're looking for "idea" quotes, what about this one as an alternative -- "A half-baked idea is okay as long as it's in the oven."
