Many, many people have quotations in the signatures, so, shall we share our favorite "on topic" quotes with each other?
I'll get the ball rolling with a quote from one of my all time favorite authors.

I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when
there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it.
-- (Terry Pratchett, alt.fan.pratchett)

"Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a Peanut Butter Cup or an English Toffee. But they're gone too fast and the taste is... fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you've got left is an empty box... filled with useless brown paper wrappers."

"When in doubt, fuck" - Al Pacino's character, Lt. Col. Frank Slade, in Scent of a Woman.

And if I'm not mistaken, the censored television version is "When in doubt, make love."

Or,

I always thought this was rather beautiful:

"There are not many persons who know what wonders are opened to them in the stories and visions of their youth; for when as children we learn and dream, we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember, we are dulled and prosaic with the poison of life. But some of us awake in the night with strange phantasms of enchanted hills and gardens, of fountains that sing in the sun, of golden cliffs overhanging murmuring seas, of plains that stretch down to sleeping cities of bronze and stone, and of shadowy companies of heroes that ride caparisoned white horses along the edges of thick forests; and then we know that we have looked back through the ivory gates into that world of wonder which was ours before we were wise and unhappy."
H.P. Lovecraft

In honour of lost loves...

I don't know anything about cars but the (now five year old) advert read something like...

"1964 Austin-Healey 3000, partly refurbished but unassembled, selling as a “project”. $6k."

I'd name that as one of my favourite quotes.

How could I forget that one?!!! I adore that quote.

I find a lot of valuable lessons/quotes in the original Charlie and The Chololate Factory/1971. The reason I love this book/movie is because it's all about people getting what they deserve. All of the following quotes are from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

A few of My favourites:

"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it."-Willy Wonka

" *We* are the music makers... and *we* are the dreamers of dreams. So shines a good deed in a weary world."-Willy Wonka

" A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men."-Willy Wonka

"So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it."-Willy Wonka

"But Charlie, don't forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he he always wanted."
Charlie Bucket: What happened? "He lived happily ever after."-Willy Wonka.

Violet Beauregarde: [while digging in a nostril] "Spitting's a dirty habit."
Willy Wonka: [glaring at her] "I know a worse one."

Mrs. Gloop: "Don't just stand there, do something!"
Willy Wonka: [unenthusiastically] "Help. Police. Murder."

A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.

A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her.


Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

Genius is born--not paid.

I think that God in creating Man somewhat overestimated his ability.

I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.

If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.
It is always a silly thing to give advice, but to give good advice is fatal.

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace.

There are only two kinds of people who are really fascinating: people who know absolutely everything, and people who know absolutely nothing.

The only thing that sustains one through life is the consciousness of the immense inferiority of everybody else, and this is a feeling that I have always cultivated.

When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers.

Work is the curse of the drinking classes.

I can resist anything but temptation.

Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.

Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

But what is the difference between literature and journalism?
...Journalism is unreadable and literature is not read. That is all.

A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.

One is tempted to define man as a rational animal who always loses his temper when he is called upon to act in accordance with the dictates of reason.

I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible.

I like persons better than principles, and I like persons with no principles better than anything else in the world.

I love acting. It is so much more real than life.

Perhaps, after all, America never has been discovered. I myself would say that it had merely been detected.

There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up

When a woman marries again, it is because she detested her first husband. When a man marries again, it is because he adored his first wife. Women try their luck; men risk theirs.

Best,

Torquemada

Along the same vein:

I recall reading something by the Good Doktor where he said:

"I refuse to die because it would only make My enemies happy" (Something along those lines) I never forgot it.

I'll quote my favorite song by perhaps my favorite singer of all time:

"For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows
I took the blows
and did it my way!"

I collect tons of quotes, but these are certainly among my top favorites:

  • "When your mind becomes obsessed with anything, you will filter everything else out, and see that thing everywhere you look." - p

  • "If you think there's a solution, then you're part of the problem." - George Carlin

  • "Christianity's such an odd religion. The whole image is: eternal suffering awaits anyone who questions God's infinite love." - Bill Hicks

  • "I find enough mystery in mathematics to satisfy my spiritual needs." - Tom Lehrer

  • "'Love All' only works in tennis." - Solution to a word problem from a MENSA puzzle calendar

  • "Nobody's 'happy'! Happiness comes in small doses, folks. It's a cigarette or a chocolate chip cookie or a 5 second orgasm...that's IT. OK?!" - Denis Leary

  • "Takes more than combat gear to make a man, takes more than a license for a gun. Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can. A gentleman will walk but never run." - Sting

  • "There is nothing in the world more interesting to me than my orgasm, and nothing in the world LESS interesting to me than yours."- Dennis Miller

    The thing that the press completely missed the point on with that episode in particular is that it was entirely devised to be a satire on the hysterical media circus that goes with reporting about paedophilia. Chris Morris couldn't have hoped for a more fitting reaction to underline the point he was trying to make.

    Once again, the unchanging fact of life is highlighted for all to see. People really are THAT stupid.

    “Tell me where is fancy bred?
    In the heart or in the head?”
    is originally from Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice.

    My two favourite quotations are also from Shakespeare:

    “This above all, to thine own self be true” – Hamlet.

    “We are the makers of manners” – Henry V.

    Another one that just hit me:

    "The only greatness for a man is immortality" - James Dean

    And of course the quote from "MIGHT IS RIGHT" that is in my signature.

    What I love about this quote is that it explains away so many different kinds of human phenomena. Some incredible lesser magic applications too, but that's another story.

    A couple more favorites:

  • "This is a COMPLICATED world. Short quick easy simple religious answers may make you feel good, but are not likely to be consistant with this reality."
    - Mizduk (internet post)

  • "Remember that the burden of proof is on the person alleging the existence of something. If someone tells me that the Easter Bunny is hiding in somebody's clothes closet somewhere in North America, there is no need for me to search every closet on the continent. The person making the claim has to produce the rabbit or stop wasting my time." - Frank Zindler (infidels.org)

  • "Those who have no sense of humor should not be taken seriously. They take themselves so seriously, they leave no room for others to do likewise." - Anton LaVey

  • "Why did God sacrifice himself to himself, to correct a mistake he made himself?" - Jim Hubert, "Questions for Bible-Thumpers"

  • "My sources tell me that you combine arrogance with trivia and try to pass it off as intelligence." - Dogbert

  • "What I look for in a woman is what most guys look for in a woman, and what most women look for in a guy: somebody I want to be with. Somebody who's fun, intelligent, attractive. Somebody who won't be hard to spend time with. All that other stuff is just details." - Dennis Miller

    I was watching "The Departed" last night and Jack Nicholson's character said something that just had Me rolling.

    "I haven't needed money since I stole Archie's milk money in the 4th grade. I don't eat pussy either. But I tell ya what, I still like it!"

    Priceless on so many levels. And, as a Satanist I like the fact that it goes to show - pursuit of life is not in merely surviving, but getting what you want while you're here!

    James Huber (I misspelled his name) is also the author of the story "Kissing Hanks Ass". I like a lot of his writings, including these two and "The Watchmaker" where he takes the old watchmaker argument for creation and twists it into a good argument for evolution. He has some of these stories as PDF files which you can print out and make flyers from.

    I love the brilliant simplicity though of the "sacrifice himself to himself" quote, as it shows what the whole born-again Xtian argument boils down to.

    Even more favorites:

    “But what is so alarming about laughter?”
    “Laughter kills fear, and without fear there can be no faith, because without fear of the Devil there is no more need of God.”

    – Name of the Rose (1986)

    "If Adam and Eve did not exist, and consequently there wasn't a fall from grace, what need would there be for Jesus to die for our sins?"
    "This argument sounds to me like someone saying, 'Isn't it great that people get cancer? Otherwise, there would be no need to save them with chemotherapy!'"

    - talkorigins.org monthly feedback posts

    "Debate is an art form. It is about the winning of arguments. It is not about the discovery of truth. There are certain rules and procedures to debate that really have nothing to do with establishing fact [...] never say anything positive about your own position because it can be attacked, but chip away at what appear to be the weaknesses in your opponent’s position. [creationists] are good at that. I don’t think I could beat the creationists at debate. I can tie them. But in courtrooms they are terrible, because in courtrooms you cannot give speeches. In a courtroom you have to answer direct questions about the positive status of your belief. We destroyed them in Arkansas. On the second day of the two-week trial we had our victory party!”
    - Stephen Jay Gould

    "When I entered college I was thinking of majoring in English, but that would have required reading far too many books, too few of which I might possibly enjoy. I was also considering majoring in chemistry, but there were all those labs and smells to contend with. Math was much easier. There were frequent homework assignments, so I didn't really have to study for the exams, because if you'd done the homework, you pretty much knew the material. There were no labs, no long reading lists, and no term papers to put off as long as possible. Perfect for a lazy student."
    - Tom Lehrer

    "If you have it, you don't need it. If you need it you don't have it. If you have it you need more of it. If you have more of it, you don't need less of it. You need it to get it. And you certainly need it to get more of it. But if you don't already have any of it to begin with, you can't get any of it to get started, which means you really have no idea how to get it in the first place. Do you? You can share it, sure. You can even stock pile it if you'd like. But you can't fake it. Wanting it. Needing it. Wishing for it. The point is, if you've never had any of it, ever, people just seem to know." ~Bruce Campbell

    This is one of the funniest quotes I've found in a long time, and also another clear example(as if one needs more) of why proponents of creationism are not merely funny, but SCARY:

    "We really have dinosaurs today, without any question. You just need the right weather conditions, as I see it, to get huge creatures. And in the ocean, of course, we have huge creatures....this is where the plesiosauruses seem to be today, and perhaps also this fire breathing dragon is still down there -- very rare, but occasionally there."

    --Rev. Walter Lang
    Founder,
    Bible-Science Association



    Sometimes, when it rains hard enough, or weather conditions are otherwise just right, one can find megalodons performing the breaststroke with perfect form in the puddles of my driveway.
    If I pray hard enough, faeries will usually come and scare them away before any sharks get the chance to swim into my well.

    I am currently putting together the next Newsletter of a local animal welfare group, and was gathering a few quotations, which are very useful space-fillers. I found this one.

    The haughty, the unconquered, the mysterious, the luxurious, the Babylonian, the impersonal, the eternal companion of superiority and art – the type of perfect beauty and the brother of poetry – the bland, grave, competent and patrician cat. H.P.Lovecraft 1890-1937

    "Share something you like with someone you love and you will feel very good.
    - Wrong! Then I'll only have half of it, and it will feel half as good as I could have felt
    - All you have to do is buy twice as much to start with."

    Me and my sister talking.

    That quote always causes my thoughts to roam to a few rather exceptional people whom I've had the pleasure of knowing. I'm quite pleased to see others quote it as well.



    And here is part of my favorite song, by Tool:


    "[...]

    I sold my soul to make a record, dipshit.
    And -you- bought one!

    [...]

    So shut up and

    Buy my new record!
    Send more money!"

    Beauty is only skin deep.

    I love people for their brains. It is the brain that makes the person; I love intelligence, wit, large amounts of humor and talent. I cannot, however, deal with people that have no respect for themselves.

    Natural ugliness is one thing; lack of care is another. Overweight people turn me off immediately, because I think on sight that they can't care about themselves, or they wouldn't have let themselves get so goddamn fat in the first place. People that don't wash, that wear extremely baggy or dark clothing, or ever try to be attractive at all turn me off. People that know that they are not attractive and spout some BS about how they "want people to love me for me" will never get anyone worthwhile, because no one worthwhile (like myself) would even approach them in the first place!

    My point is, some people may have delightful minds and truly be "beautiful" on the inside -- but most decent, self-respecting people will never know. The only people that will know, will be people that don't appreciate it, because they, also, lack self-respect.

    They'll never respect me, if they can't muster some dignity up for themselves. Why bother?

    I agree with you, or at least I use to, but the last girlfriend I had was actually a lil overweight ( yes, I'm bi ) but she was still beautiful outside and inside, so it didn't really bother me, maybe it was because of her high IQ, and she was also a very loving person at the same time ( and that is the best IQ in my eyes ) - so I didn't have any complaints, I don't see the world in just black and white.

    Nobody is perfect you know! - And what is perfect anyway?! - That can only be a matter of taste, she was perfect for me at the time.

    I know that people who are overweight can have the same imbalance that people have when they are on drugs, but she wasn't like that, she was a creative genius.

    and she wasn't boring like all the people who starve themselves

    And to be a lil chubby is actually very healthy, so I have no problem with it!

    It's only when people are unhealty I see it as a problem.

    I like that quote, but I would never claim math to be boring and pointless. Math has far more applications than just physics.

    I like the quote because it is funny and because it has pissed off every math major I have ever met.

    Oh it was witty, I'll give him that. And I still like Feynman. I just disagree with the "math is pointless and dull unless it has real-life application" school of thought. I guess Rutherford's quote about physics and "stamp collecting" has likewise pissed off a few physics majors.

    After just a few breaths that nature took, the constellation froze, and the clever animals had to die.

    There are quite a few of them here, since I have truoble picking my favorite. I have a notebook in my study that I use for my personal thoughts and writings, and when I was in high school I covered it with my favorite quotes. These are a few of them, and I hope you all enjoy!



    "I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me." -Dave Barry

    "Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet." -Dave Barry

    "America has never been united by blood or birth or soil. We are bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above our interests and teach us what it means to be citizens." -George W. Bush (Also, this is the only thing he has ever said that I think has any wisdom to it... somebody else must have written this speech for him!)

    "A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." -Sir Winston Churchill

    "Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." -Sir Winston Churchill

    "My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes." -Ronald Reagan (this was said during a microphone test at a radio station)

    "The greatest conflicts are not between two people but between one person and himself." -Garth Brooks

    And my personal favorite:

    "Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest." -Mark Twain

    There are so many great statements that I cannot possibly pick an ultimate favorite, but heres a few that I have been mulling over recently.

    ----

    "I," you say, and are proud of the word. But greater is that in which you do not wish to have faith - your body and its great reason: that does not say "I," but does "I."

    The you is older than the I; the you has been pronounced holy, but not yet the I: so man crowds towards his neighbor.

    A tablet of the good hangs over every people. Behold, it is the tablet of their overcomings; behold, it is the voice of their will to power.

    - Friedrich Nietzsche

    ----

    I've been quite the Nietzche enthusiast lately, always finding interesting statements in his works.

    "Why shouldn't I work for the N.S.A.? That's a tough one, but I'll take a shot. Say I'm working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. Maybe I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I'm real happy with myself, 'cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never met, never had a no problem with get killed. Now the politicians are sayin', "Oh, Send in the marines to secure the area" 'cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin' a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some kid from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass. And he comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile he realizes the only reason he was over there in the first place was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And of course the oil companies used the skirmish over there to scare up domestic oil prices. A cute little ancillary benefit for them, but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And they're takin' their sweet time bringin' the oil back of course, and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and fuckin' play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain't too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic. So now my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive, so he's got to walk to the fuckin' job interviews, which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin' him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin' 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat the only blue plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what did I think? I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president."

    "If you're part of a crew, nobody ever tells you that they're going to kill you, doesn't happen that way. There weren't any arguments or curses like in the movies. See, your murders come with smiles, they come as your friends, the people who've cared for you all of your life. And they always seem to come at a time that you're at your weakest and most in need of their help. "

You could have just as easily been going left too and if that was the case, it would have been awhile before you started getting scared. But since you're going the other way, I'm afraid you're gonna have to start getting scared... immediately.

    I like that quote, but I would never claim math to be boring and pointless. Math has far more applications than just physics.

    I like the quote because it is funny and because it has pissed off every math major I have ever met.


    Ah, I think the math majors are being too short sighted (and perhaps the original author of the quote). Both masturbation AND sex are beautiful expressions of sexuality. Neither is superior, nor inferior, to the other--just different. I choose BOTH Math AND Physics, thank you very much.

    "Naturally the common people don't want war: neither Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along...all you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I love the Bladerunner quote!

    A couple of my favourites from Hitchhiker's Guide:
    -----------------------

    “Oh great Deep Thought, we have travelled long and hard – have you calculated the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything?”
    “Ooooh, no.”
    “What?”
    “I’ve been watching t.v.”
    -----------------------

    “Perhaps I’m old and tired but I think the chances of finding out what’s actually going on are so absurdly remote, that the only thing to do is say hang the sense of it and keep yourself busy. I’d much rather be happy than right any day.”
    -“And are you?”
    “-Uuuuh… No, Haha, <snort> well that’s where it all falls down of course… “
    -----------------------

    “Is she the one?” The answer bloody well isn’t 42.

    "Fucking pussies.

    I'm sorry, but women are supposed to cook and sew and do the dishes and nuture the kids for those first few years.

    Men are supposed to be the breadwinners. "Slaves" if you must. We're the soldiers, the fighters, the workers. We're supposed to teach our sons to fight, to work, to kill, to be strong. That is how the male sex is personified, strength.

    That is our role and there is nothing to be ashamed about that.

    To all the males in here that are defending the current bitchified status-quo of politicised feminine bullshittery need to screw your nuts on and go knock some shit over with your dick.

    You're expendable. Get over it".

    I have already posted my favorite quote, from the beautiful and intelligent Jodie Foster.

    The quote I now display, in my signature, is, to the best of my knowledge, original.

    I have often heard the saying, "March to the beat of a diffrent drummer". Over time, I have found that this often means stop following the big herd, and find a smaller herd to follow in. Rarely do I find someone who sets their own tempo. Those who do so have my greatest respect. It was this quality, above all others, that has attracted me to the founder of our religion.

    I have to say that the quote that sums up how I feel right now is this one:

    “Satanism is a Pandora’s box. Once the demons are out, you can’t stuff them back inside. Once your eyes are opened to reality, they can’t be closed.”

    The Oxford Vs Cambridge boat race a few years ago.

    Princess Ann was presenting the Trophy to the winning team. She presented the award and leaned in to offer a congratulatory kiss to the team coxwain.

    As it happened the TV commentator reported....

    "Oh, and isn't that a super gesture! The princess is kissing the cox' of the Cambridge team."

    I have to take a few from two of my favorite movies. They pretty much sum up my feelings on many things. Indulge me for a moment, please.

    I'm a bit late getting to this thread, and I haven't had a chance to read all the posts, so sorry if anyone has already mentioned these two quotes...

    "My right I have made for myself, by not what I can do, but by how important it is for others that I be resented, maligned, misunderstood and hated."

    "Other men's deaths make the earth a sweeter, finer place for those who have the capacity to relish each moment spent upon it."

    "The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water and breeds reptiles of the mind." by William Blake

    Edit:
    Oh and I would add this one: "There is no such thing as non-existence." ...this quite interests mind, doesn't it?

    Since this thread has been "reactivated":

    I like that one Shade. I had a couple on a truck I drove several years ago:

    "Don't tell me what kind of day to have!" and
    "Warning: I drive like you do!"

    Thank you for reviving this. One of my favorites is from the danish science fiction writer Erwin Neutzsky-Wulff. Although over the years I've come to disagree with him on some issues his writings had a big impact on me when I was younger. The quote is from his book "Faust", the translation is my own:

    "Seek then not to be like others, for he who is like his fellow man is nothing. What use is he? But if the god has made thee unlike them, seek then to be even more unlike them, that they may come to you and ask: Do for us that which we are incapable of doing ourselves".

    This is spoken by his "mad" prophet who has many similarities to Nietzsche, and I've always taken it to heart and based my personal strategy on being the one who could do what others could not.

    @ Dr. de Sade: Actually I believe Baudelaire said that first.

    "In a world where carpenters get resurrected, everything is possible."
    ~ Eleanor of Aquitaine, The Lion in Winter

    "Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?"
    ~ Thomas Dagget, The Prophecy

    "Whoever said 'laughter is the best medicine' never had gonorrhea."
    ~ Earl, My Name is Earl

    "In order to say "don't be evil" you must already dwell in that space of evil, and I congratulate you for it" - Slavoj Zizek

    (We do not punish criminals for example, or others we judge as wrong doers, because they are evil - we both judge them evil and punish them because we claim a right to do so - and we claim this right because their actions are in discord with what we judge as good, as the best -the mightiest way- for a productive existence of our society for example.
    Thus the very judgment of good and evil is an affirmation that the mightiest authority has the right to violently abuse it's surroundings, an affirmation that might is indeed right, no matter how evil it may be.)

    That reminded me of another thing that someone said that I find particularly humorous about the nature of existence.
    "Future does not exist, there is only now and even that is in the past, and the past does not matter anymore."

    That is a great quote, verszou!

    Being the spawn of a diehard Asimov fan, I am familiar with and like this one very much (which I'll put in German because everything always looks more impressive in German): "Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."

    One of my favourite movie scenes...

    - Man bumps into a "lady", spilling a drink on her dress.
    - She gestures at herself: 'Who pays for this?'
    - "Who wouldn't?"

    And I recently had the singular pleasure of telling a particularly handsome devil, "You remind me of a man..."

    He got the reference. Devils usually do. coopdevil

    Since I'm next to Germany I got that one smile I seem to recall that the title was "The gods themselves" ? and that there was a plot involving time-travel? Must have been at least 25 years since I read it smile

    Donne is referenced in a lot of anatomy texts which is the main reason I even recognized the name. His descriptions are impressive. I'm still partial to Richard Selzer though. His writing takes my breath away.

    ----

    "Women are physics and chemistry. They are matter. It is their bodies that tell of the frailty of men. Men have not their cellular, enzymatic wisdom.

    Man is albuminoidal, pertinacious, laked pearl; woman is yolky, ovoid, rich. Both are exuberant bloody growths.

    I would use the defects and deformities of each for my sacred purpose of writing, for I know that it is the marred and scarred and faulty that are subject to grace." ~ The Exact Location of the Soul
    ----

    And this is from my all-time favourite essay ever...

    "Ah, but there is more to the skull than helmet to the brain, to the sternum than shield to the heart, to the ribs than staves of the thorax. The rest of flesh is transient, strung like laundry upon a lattice.

    To dwell upon bone is to contemplate the fate of man. Bone is the keepsake of the earth, all that remains of a man when the rest has long since melted and seeped and crumbled away.

    It endures for a million years and, if then dug up from the ground, suggests still to anthropologists the humps of meat that once it wore, and to poets the much that was from the little that remains." ~ Bone

    “The concept of absurdity is something I'm attracted to.” - David Lynch

    I had this one up for a while:

    "Man isn't a noble savage, he's an ignoble savage. He is irrational, brutal, weak, silly, unable to be objective about anything where his own interests are involved—that about sums it up. I'm interested in the brutal and violent nature of man because it's a true picture of him. And any attempt to create social institutions on a false view of the nature of man is probably doomed to failure." - Stanley Kubrick

    Two of my absolute favorites are:

    "Do what you can with what you've got wherever you are."
    ~ Theodore Roosevelt ~
    "The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one."
    ~ Elbert Hubbard ~


    There's this funny stuff I read once in the Atheist's Bible, and had to look up again to get it right.

    "When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
    Then I realized God doesn’t work that way,
    so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness.
    "
    Emo Philips

    And I don't know whose quote this is.
    "If you can smile when things go wrong then you have someone in mind to blame."

    "Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money."
    - George Carlin
