On a similar note:

"In any dispute the intensity of feeling is inversely proportional to the 
value of the stakes at issue." By way of corollary, it adds: "That is why 
academic politics are so bitter." Sayre's law is named after Wallace Stanley 
Sayre (1905-1972), U.S. political scientist and professor at Columbia 

And not so related, but still appropriate in many instances -- could 
occasionally be said about people on this list, if I were feeling really mean and 

"Some people like a Slinky...Not really good for anything, but you still 
can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs."
