Spam's new way of getting past filters: Wisdom

I opened(!) a spam email containing the following text:

Ae Wisdom has never made a bigot, but learning has.

A pint of example is worth a gallon of advice
Young blood must have its course, lad, and every dog its day.
Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.
The real people of genius were resolute workers not idle dreamers.

A court is a place where what was confused before becomes more unsettled than ever.
Finance is the art of passing currency from hand to hand until it finally disappears.
Expect poison from standing water.
Honor is like an island, rugged and without a beach once we have left it, we can never return.
Kind words are worth much and they cost little.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.

I wish life was not so short, he thought. languages take such a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about.

When you are seventeen you aren't really serious. The average American worker has fifty interruptions a day, of which seventy percent have nothing to do with work.

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.

Isolation is the sum total of wretchedness to a man.
Every man goes down to his death bearing in his hands only that which he has given away.Error is discipline through which we advance.


At the end was some medication ad image. I've gotten several of these over the past week, and they work extremely well. First, they get through the filters, and second, people actually read them. Could these be the end of the filter method of anti-spam? Possibly, but eventually the filters could be set to detect >5 wisdom cliches in an email, and classify it as spam. But what do I know?
