    I love quotes. Here's a few that I've collected recently:

    Life is like a grapefruit... It's orangey-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle... and some people have half a one for breakfast.
    - Douglas Adams

    It is possible that you are the fish under the bridge,
    maybe even the pigeon on the general's head,
    but you are not even close
    to being the field of cornflowers at dusk.
    - Billy Collins

    I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
    -Galileo Galilei, astronomer

    Hey, I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but I'm certainly not the dumbest. I mean, I've read books like "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" and "Love in the Time of Cholera", and I think I've understood them. They're about girls, right? Just kidding.
    - Rob, in the movie/book "High Fidelity"

    I believe the noted historian Doris Kearns Goodwin put it best when she said, Its the end of the republic, bitches! Better learn ya some f@#king Chinese!"
    - Stephen Colbert

    Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggie" until you can find a rock.
    - Will Rogers

    Ron Paul doesn't cut taxes. He kills them with his bare hands.
    - A random website

    Maturity is knowing you were an idiot in the past... Wisdom is knowing that you'll be an idiot in the future... and common sense is knowing that you should try not to be an idiot now.
    - from the webcomic "Questionable Content"

    Dammit man, I'm a doctor, not a physicist!
    - Leonard "Bones" McCoy

    Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.
    - George W. Bush

    I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it.
    - Groucho Marx
    and it's nice enough to
    make a man
    weep, but I don't
    weep, do
    you?

    My favourite quote of the now is ascribed to the late president of Gabon, Omar Bongo, who died earlier this month.

    Bongo had changed his name from Albert-Bernard and converted to Islam in the 70s. On a presidential visit to Saudi Arabia, he was treated to all the fineries a head of state could expect. Hovering just under 5 feet tall, Bongo let his emotions get the better of him a proclaimed at a Saudi bash in his honour - "Long live Allah!".

    So offended were the Saudis, Bongo had to be spirited out of the country asap, lest his stature be further reduced by a Saudi axeman and the term "head of state" take on a new, literal meaning...

    The remarkable quotability of the British writer Cyril Connelly seems to be inversely proportional to his lasting fame as a writer of anything more than a few sentences long. Here are a few:

    "We must select the illusion which appeals to our temperament, and embrace it with passion, if we want to be happy."

    "A life based on reason will always require to be balanced by an occasional bout of violent and irrational emotion, for the instinctual tribes must be satisfied."

    "Whom the gods wish to destroy, they first call promising."

    "The man who is master of his passions is Reason's slave."

    "Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self."

    "Optimism and self-pity are the positive and negative poles of modern cowardice."

    "The secret of happiness ... is to be in harmony with existence, to be always calm, always lucid, always willing "to be joined to the universe without being more conscious of it than an idiot," to let each wave of life wash us a little farther up the shore."

    "Most people do not believe in anything very much and our greatest poetry is given to us by those that do."

    "Slums may well be breeding grounds of crime, but middle class suburbs are incubators of apathy and delirium."

    "All charming people have something to conceal, usually their total dependence on the appreciation of others. "

    Ah, the cynicism!
