The wisdom of "Herm Albright"

"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems,
     but it will annoy enough people to make it worthwhile."

"Herm Albright, writer"

A luscious quote. Share it as you will.

An interesting thing about Herm Albright is that apparently no one knows who he is (or was). The breezy quote is attributed to him on about a million web sites, but there is no Wikipedia entry for "Herm Albright" or "Herman Albright" and I spent a solid 5 minutes using Bing and Google to find a bio on him without success. I put "Herm Albright, writer" in quotation marks to suggest an aura of anonymity.

So, thanks, Herm, whoever you are…

    1. Daniel, thanks for this citation, it appears there was an artist named Herm Albright, but I can't resist saying that the Albright described in your citation doesn't really sound like the kind of guy who would say what someone named "Herm Albright" apparently said. It seems strange that there is no Wikipedia page for Herman Oliver Albright. I remain a bit mystified.
