You just made my coworker and me laugh out loud with this quote, which I saw on Popurls.com.

Bravo, you sick sick person!

Just curious, who is William H. Gascoyne?
It's a very quotable quote but I'd like to know a little about the author.

a simple google search would do the trick, instead of asking stupid questions. that's what it's there for.

FYI, Jordan, a simple Google search showed that many bloggers liked this quote but there doesn't seem to be any reference to an actual person.

I'll restrain myself from returning sarcasm in kind.

Actually, Googling doesn't help much. Lots of references to him, but no clearer idea of who he is.

A Google search came up with this:

I’m not convinced that faith can move mountains, but I’ve seen what it can do to skyscrapers. -William H. Gascoyne, “One-liners,” Op/Ed section, San Jose Mercury, Jan. 20, 2004

So maybe he's just some guy.

He's not just "some guy"? He's some guy with a cool quote!

Given that Lord (Rupert Ernest) William Gascoyne-Cecil was born in 1863, I find that unlikely.

FYI Jordan: you don't have many friends, do you?

Seems he's an engineer down in Silicon Valley. Here's his site:
