omg… great quote!

So I’m hanging out on my pal Kevin’s blog, and I click his quotes link…

I think he’s given me one of my new favourite quotes of all time:

“Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.”
~Steven Wright

OMG that’s brilliant!

I’m going to get a little group of my favourites together and post ’em. Yeah I’m skeezin’ in on his idea, but really, great quotes are meant to be shared, so maybe I’d have thought of it eventually… πŸ˜€

Here are a few I can think up right now:

Remember, Information is not knowledge; Knowledge is not Wisdom; Wisdom is not truth; Truth is not beauty; Beauty is not love
~ Frank Zappa

The Riddle of Epicurus
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

A casual stroll through a lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
~ Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

The only person who is a worse liar than a faith healer is his patient.
~ Abraham Lincoln

(about animal rights-) The question is not, “Can they reason?” nor, “Can they talk?” but rather, “Can they suffer?”†
~ Jeremy Bentham

Hunting is not a sport.† In a sport, both sides should know they’re in the game.†
~ Paul Rodriguez

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it’s safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.†
~ Author Unknown

When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.†
~ George Bernard Shaw

There is no hell. There is only France.
~ Frank Zappa

Remember there’s a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.
~ Frank Zappa

Good night kitties!
smooches by the dozen~

  1. Some great quotes, really like the Abe Lincon one. Don’t worry about “skeezin’ ” my ideas I am sure I have “skeezed” a few of yours since this whole blogging thing started 😳

    Hi ho, hi ho it’s off to work I go πŸ™

  2. OK, I’m getting in on this…
    Here’s the one quote that is more of a life mantra for me:
    “I attempt to paint what I have found and not what I have sought” – Pablo Piccasso

    And some more meaningless ones that I care nothing about:

    Fiction writing is great, you can make up almost anything.”  – Ivana Trump, on finishing her first novel 

    “The world is more like it is now than it ever has before.” – Dwight Eisenhower

    “Good looking people turn me off.  Myself included.” – Patrick Swayze, Actor

    “If people get a kick out of running down pedestrians, you have to let them do it.” – Paul Jacobs, marketing director for a video game company

    “Listen, everyone is entitled to my opinion.” – Madonna

    “It’s like when I buy a horse.  I don’t want a thick neck and short legs.” – Mickey Rourke, Actor, describing what he wants in a woman.

    “Please do not feed the animals. If you have any suitable food, give it to the guard on duty.” – Budapest Zoo sign

    That’ll do pig, that’ll do…

  3. I think I’ve found my blog mantra in your comments:
    “Listen, everyone is entitled to my opinion.” – Madonna

    Heh heh… isn’t that the point of all of this? πŸ˜‰
