In no particular order:

"there are no accidents in history" --FDR

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere -- so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive -- that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.'--Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom, 1913

"What, now a warning?!" --Meryl Streep in "Death Becomes Her" (and about a dozen others--greatest comedy flic of all time IMHO)

"Like, Hello?" --Monica Lewinsky

My sig, from Helmut Kohl

"They say the greatest coward hurts the most ferociously." --Annie Lennox/Eurythmics, lyrics from "The Miracle of Love"

"I've been a teenager since before you were born" --Pet Shop Boys

"as we get older and stop making sense" --Talking Heads

"There are lies, damned lies, and then there are statistics" --Benjamin Disraeli

"Do unto others as they would do unto you."

"six of one, half dozen of the other." anon

"Fasten your seatbelts, its going to be a bumpy night." Bette Davis, "All About Eve"

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.

This is my current favourite quote...

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlyn, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn."

From the Once and Future King by T H White

"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."
"But," say Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED."
"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't though of that" and promply vanishes in a puff of logic.


It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.


He picked up the letter Q and hurled it into a distant privet bush where it hit a young rabbit. The rabbit hurtled off in terror and didn't stop till it was set upon and eaten by a fox which choked on one of its bones and died on the bank of a stream which subsequently washed it away.

During the following weeks Ford Prefect swallowed his pride and struck up a relationship with a girl who had been a personnel officer on Golgafrincham, and he was terribly upset when she suddenly passed away as a result of drinking water from a pool that had been polluted by the body of a dead fox. The only moral it is possible to draw from this story is that one should never throw the letter Q into a privet bush.

--The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy spent.

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son.
Senior citizens wish they were young.

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colors from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white.
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion.

I just got some quotes from an email this morning and thought I would share:

'The most terrifying words in the English language are:
I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end
and no sense of responsibility at the other.'

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is
a government program.'

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession.
I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.'

Ronald Reagan

I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than on the opinions of others.
