Quotes

Someone, I think it was Olive, mentioned a book of quotes. I was just thinking maybe we could all post our favourite quotes here, or try to. I know this is sort of a DOL ecxperiment, but it may fly. They can be funny, or cute, sentimental...all that rot.

Oh, and thanks guys.

Ah, here's a few of mine:

"Who can tell me who I am?"
--from Shakespeare's King Lear

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars"
--Oscar Wilde

"No living organism can continue to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality"
--The Haunting

"Sir, do they offer a 'noose package' whith this CD so you can hang yourself after you hear it?"
--My friend Mike....re: Leonard Cohen's Dance Me Till the End of Love

"Laugh now..but wait till I'm in the lower tax bracket!"
--as overheard in Calculus


Inertia - Latin for 'laziness'

"When we kill the animals to eat them, they end up killing us because
their flesh, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never
intended for human beings."


-- William C. Roberts, M.D., editor of The American Journal of
Cardiology

I love quotes-anytime I see one I really like somewhere I write it down.

Here's some of my favorites:

"I can't believe people have been killed, ever, there is no cause worth killing innocent people over"-My friend Sean

"The next time you think about making fun of someone, walk a mile in their shoes first. That way, when you do make fun of them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes"-Anonymous

"Do not the most moving moments of our lives find us all without words?"-Marcel Marceau

"Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and thought to myself, 'Where the heck is the ceiling?'"-Anon

"You know you love someone when all you want is for them to be happy, even if that happiness means that you're not a part of it"-Anon

"Mankind must put an end to war. Or war will put an end to mankind"-J.F.K.

"There was never a good war or a bad peace"-Unknown

"Today's country music is just really bad rock packaged as country music"-Tom Petty

"This record is dedicated to everyone who loves music just a little bit more than money."-On the back inside cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' latest CD, "The Last DJ"

"I often wonder if religion is the enemy of God. It's almost like religion is what happens when the Spirit has left the building"-Bono

"If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you."-Unknown (someone posted this one on another board and I thought it was pretty funny)

"Who says that if you see the glass as half empty you need therapy? You're just thirsty."-Crystal Light Iced Tea ad

I had two in my sig, but they're not there anymore-not sure why at this time.

I'll post them here now, though:

"We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh"-Agnes Rippler (this is my all time favorite quote-it makes me think of my first boyfriend, and it's one I've found to be true so often)

"What's the glory in taking a man from his bed and gunning him down in front of his wife and his children? Where's the glory in that?"-Bono

I made my song a coat
Covered with embroideries
Out of old mythologies ~ A Coat, Yeats

The truth is the one thing that nobody will believe ~ George Bernard Shaw

I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. ~ He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven- Mr Yeats again

I just finished watching Fight Club and I really like the quote "It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."
