50 – “The mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work unless it’s open.”

– anonymous [see source notes]

Quote Number: 638

Source: N/A

Source Notes: This quote has been attributed to multiple sources, most commonly Frank Zappa, however, I could not find a specific source for it from anyone. Another, very similar quote, “Mind like parachute, only function when open,” is from the 1936 film Charlie Chan at the Circus. It is spoken by Charlie Chan, played by Warner Oland, near the end of the film.
