"I did not like living in Hollywood. America is too big. From Hollywood, you can fly three hours, and you end up in Texas. I don't want to be in Texas. It stinks of ketchup and Coke. Living in France, in two hours I can be in Rome, or in London or Stockholm in one hour." -- Omar Sharif

"Unfortunately, I am intelligent enough not to be able to stand stupidity." -- Omar Sharif

two great quotes:

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

You do what you love, and fuck the rest.
-Dwayne from Little Miss Sunshine

Lots of good fishing quotations ('quotes' is a verb):

I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful, and hate the environs where crowds of people are found, which are invariably ugly; because of all the television commercials, cocktail parties, and assorted social posturing I thus escape; because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience; because I suspect that men are going along this way for the last time, and I for one don't want to waste the trip; because mercifully there are no telephones on trout waters; because only in the woods can I find solitude without loneliness; because bourbon out of an old tin cup always tastes better out there; because maybe one day I will catch a mermaid; and, finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant - and not nearly so much fun.

John Voelker aka Robert Traver

"You think I am attacking them for talking nonsense? Not a bit! I like the to talk nonsense. Through error you can come to the the truth! I am a man because I err! You never reach any truth without making fourteen mistakes and very likely a hundred and fourteen. And a fine thing, too, in its own way; but we can't even make mistakes on our own account! Talk nonsense, but talk your own nonsense. To go wrong in one's own way is better than to go right in someone else's. In the first case you are a man, in the second you're no better than a bird. Truth won't escape you but life can be cramped. There have been examples. And what are we doing now? In science, developement, thought, invention, ideals, arms, liberalism, judgement, experience, and everything, everything, everything, we are still in preperatory class at school. We prefer to live on other poeple's ideas, it's what we are used to! Am I right, am I right?" Razumihin in Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky

"I hated every minute of the training but I said, 'Don't quit, suffer now, and live the rest of your life like a champion." - Muhammad Ali

"I never fall apart because I never fall together"

~Andy Warhol
post #43 of 44 Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful. -- Seneca the Younger, 4 B.C - 65 A.D. Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction. -- Pascal, 1623-1662 The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it. -- Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862 (1) Faith is believing what you know ain't so. (2) If Christ were here now there is one thing he would not be: a Christian. (3) The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out, the conservative adopts them. Mr. Clemens was once asked whether he feared death. He said that he did not, in view of the fact that he had been dead for billions and billions of years before he was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it. -- Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain, 1835-1910

Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

-Jack Handey
