    Why would or should I necessarily look toward a singer or actor for a 'cognizant' quote?
    I guess I meant to say "showing any signs of intelligence whatsoever." They stay stuff like "Durr I have sex with flagpoles an' at the end of da day, is all jus about how awsum you are, durrrrr." And for some unholy reason, every little word they say gets all the recognition in Babylon. People in Hollywood are treated as gods on Earth.

    If you look at a lot of the celebrity quotes today, it's shocking. The lack of cognizance these millionaire singers and actors display is just astounding.
    How else are they going to sing songs someone else wrote?

    Victor was a little baby,
    Into this world he came;
    His father took him on his knee and said:
    'Don't dishonour the family name.'

    Victor looked up at his father
    Looked up with big round eyes:
    His father said; 'Victor, my only son,
    Don't you ever ever tell lies.'

    Victor and his father went riding
    Out in a little dog-cart;
    His father took a Bible from his pocket and read;
    'Blessed are the pure in heart.'

    It was a frosty December
    Victor was only eighteen,
    But his figures were neat and his margins were straight
    And his cuffs were always clean.

    He took a room at the Peveril,
    A respectable boarding-house;
    And Time watched Victor day after day
    As a cat will watch a mouse.

    The clerks slapped Victor on the shoulder;
    'Have you ever had woman?' they said,
    'Come down town with us on Saturday night.'
    Victor smiled and shook his head.

    The manager sat in his office,
    Smoked a Corona cigar:
    Said; 'Victor's a decent fellow but
    He's too mousy to go far.'

    Victor went up the his bedroom,
    Set the alarum bell;
    Climbed into bed, took his Bible and read
    Of what happened to Jezebel.

    It was the First of April,
    Anna to the Peveril came;
    Her eyes, her lips, her breasts, her hips
    And her smile set men aflame,

    She looked as pure as a schoolgirl
    On her First Communion day,
    But her kisses were like the best champagne
    When she gave herself away.

    It was the Second of April.
    She was wearing a coat of fur;
    Victor met her upon the stair
    And he fell in love with her.

    The first time he made his proposal,
    She laughed, said; 'I'll never wed;
    The second time there was a pause;
    Then she smiled and shook her head.

    Anna looked into her mirror,
    Pouted and gave a frown:
    Said 'Victor's as dull as a wet afternoon
    But I've got to settle down.'

    The third time he made his proposal,
    As they walked by the Reservoir:
    She gave him a kiss like a blow on the head,
    Said; 'You are my heart's desire.'

    They were married early in August,
    She said; 'Kiss me, you funny boy';
    Victor took her in his arms and said;
    'O my Helen of Troy.'

    It was the middle of September,
    Victor came to the office one day;
    He was wearing a flower in his buttonhole,
    He was late but he was gay.

    The clerks were talking of Anna,
    The door was just ajar:
    One said, 'Poor old Victor, but where ignorance
    Is bliss, et cetera.'

    Victor stood still as a statue,
    The door was just ajar:
    One said, 'God, what fun I had with her
    In that Baby Austin car.'

    Victor walked out into the High Street,
    He walked to the edge of town:
    He came to the allotments and the rubbish heap
    And his tears came tumbling down.

    Victor looked up at the sunset
    As he stood there all alone;
    Cried; 'Are you in Heaven, Father?'
    But the sky said 'Address not known'.

    Victor looked at the mountains,
    The mountains all covered in snow
    Cried; 'Are you pleased with me, Father?'
    And the answer came back, No.

    Victor came to the forest,
    Cried: 'Father, will she ever be true?'
    And the oaks and the beeches shook their heads
    And they answered: 'Not to you.'

    Victor came to the meadow
    Where the wind went sweeping by:
    Cried; 'O Father, I love her so',
    But the wind said, 'She must die'.

    Victor came to the river
    Running so deep and so still:
    Crying; 'O Father, what shall I do?'
    And the river answered, 'Kill'.

    Anna was sitting at table,
    Drawing cards from a pack;
    Anna was sitting at table
    Waiting for her husband to come back.

    It wasn't the Jack of Diamonds
    Nor the Joker she drew first;
    It wasn't the King or the Queen of Hearts
    But the Ace of Spades reversed.

    Victor stood in the doorway,
    He didn't utter a word:
    She said; 'What's the matter, darling?'
    He behaved as if he hadn't heard.

    There was a voice in his left ear,
    There was a voice in his right,
    There was a voice at the base of his skull
    Saying, 'She must die tonight.'

    Victor picked up a carving-knife,
    His features were set and drawn,
    Said; 'Anna it would have been better for you
    If you had not been born.'

    Anna jumped up from the table,
    Anna started to scream,
    But Victor came slowly after her
    Like a horror in a dream.

    She dodged behind the sofa,
    She tore down a curtain rod,
    But Victor came slowly after her:
    Said; 'Prepare to meet thy God.'

    She managed to wrench the door open,
    She ran and she didn't stop.
    But Victor followed her up the stairs
    And he caught her at the top.

    He stood there above the body,
    He stood there holding the knife;
    And the blood ran down the stairs and sang,
    'I'm the Resurrection and the Life'.

    They tapped Victor on the shoulder,
    They took him away in a van;
    He sat as quiet as a lump of moss
    Saying, 'I am the Son of Man'.

    Victor sat in a corner
    Making a woman of clay:
    Saying; 'I am Alpha and Omega, I shall come
    To judge the earth some day.'
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.
