Having my way with Ulysses

Not even Achilles can overtake a turtle

A Western traveler encountering an Oriental philosopher asks him to describe the nature of the world: It is a great ball resting on the flat back of the world turtle. Ah yes, but what does the world turtle stand on? On the back of a still larger turtle. Yes, but what does he stand on? A very perceptive question. But it is no use, mister; it's turtles all the way down.

Nearly burned my kidney this morning.  Molly smelled the smoke and I ran so fast to save it I stubbed my toes on the way down.  They say people, or at least mice at any rate, get cancer from eating burned meat so I gave the charred bits to the cat.  She got a little more than she expected.
