Animals are off my list… I might more accurately state that I do not like animals, with two exceptions. The first being in the past tense, at which point I like them just fine, in the form of nice crispy spareribs and Bass Weejun penny loafers. And the second being outside, by which I mean not merely outside, as in outside the house, but genuinely outside, as in outside in the woods, or preferably outside in the South American jungle.

Over time, and across the Earth, freedom will find a way. George Bush The problem with the French is that they have no word for entrepreneur.

George Carlin I don’t believe there’s any problem in this country, no matter how tough it is, that Americans, when they roll up their sleeves, can’t completely ignore. George Carlin Brain Droppings Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky, and he has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these things he will send you to a place full of fire, and smoke, and burn and torture forever and ever 'till the end of time.... but he LOVES you. And he needs money. George Carlin The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating...and you finish off as an orgasm. George Carlin The very existence of flame throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.” George Carlin Why do they tell you to get on the plane? F* that! Let Eivel Knievel get ON the Plane, I'm getting IN the plane! George Carlin As far as I'm concerned, there won't be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead. George Harrison How do you like that bird I sent you home for your birthday? … You cooked it? … Mama, that was a South American parrot – he spoke five languages! … He should have said something? George Jessel Phone Call to Mama The human brain starts working the moment you are born and never stops until you stand up to speak in public. George Jessel There is nothing the body suffers which the soul may not profit by.
George Meredith My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image, to be servants of their human interests. George Santayana The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other poor bastard die for his. George S. Patton I've read about foreign policy and studied, I now know the number of continents. George Wallace 1968 presidential campaign I've seen many politicians paralysed in the legs as myself, but I've seen more of them who were paralysed in the head George Wallace Why does the Air Force need expensive new bombers?

Gerald Wellman You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely. Germaine Greer Accident, n.: A condition in which presence of mind is good, but absence of body is better. Gideon Wurdz The Foolish Dictionary Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a coloured pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling. Gilbert K.

It's an incredible con job when you think of it, to believe something now in exchange for life after death. Even corporations with all their reward systems don't try to make it posthumous. Gloria Steinem Jack, inviting three hot guys over to your apartment for a "fourgy" does not qualify as group therapy. Grace Will & Grace Life is a roller coaster. We spend part of the time waiting for the ups, part of the time screaming at the downs, wishing we could ride it again when we're dying, and the entire time sitting on our butts getting lazier. Grace Kelly A sexagenarian? At his age? I think that’s disgusting! Gracie Allen I want to be what I was when I wanted to be what I am now. Graffito London, 1980 Curiosity didn't kill the cat; it made the kittens. Graham H.

Groucho Marx I'm gonna live forever or die trying. Groucho Marx Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism. Harrison It's only when you look at an ant through a magnifying glass on a sunny day that you realize how often they burst into flames. Harry Hill I have found the best way to give advice to children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. Harry S. Truman I never give 'em hell. I just tell the truth, and they think it is hell. Harry S. Truman More people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, my friends, that is true perversion. Harvey Milk I still don't see how it's possible to rape a cloud. Hayden I can’t believe we still have the Miss America pageant. This is America! Where we’re not supposed to judge people based on how they look; we’re supposed to judge people based on how much money they make. Heidi Joyce I fell asleep reading a dull book, and I dreamt that I was reading on, so I woke up from sheer boredom. Heinrich Heine No one will ever win the battle of the sexes; there's too much fraternizing with the enemy. Henry Kissinger When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate now knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Henri Nouwen Out of Solitude Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. Henry Louis Mencken Prejudices
For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong. Henry Louis Mencken It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place. Henry Louis Mencken Love is like war; easy to begin but very hard to stop Henry Louis Mencken The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom. Henry Louis Mencken The time to stop talking is when the other person nods his head affirmatively but says nothing. Henry S. Haskins Treat the other man's faith gently; it is all he has to believe with. His mind was created for his own thoughts, not yours or mine. Henry S. Haskins My wife dresses to kill. She cooks the same way. Henry Youngman Zsa Zsa Gabor is an expert housekeeper. Every time she gets divorced, she keeps the house. Henry Youngman A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Jack Handy If you ever fall off the Sears Tower, just go limp, because maybe you'll look like a dummy and people will try to catch you because hey, free dummy. Jack Handy Deep Thoughts I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it. Jack Handy It makes me mad when I go to all the trouble of having Martha cook up about a hundred drumsticks, the guy at the Marineland says: 'You can't throw chicken to the dolphins. They eat fish.' Sure they eat fish, if that's all you give them. Man, wise up. Jack Handy I wish outer space guys would conquer the Earth and make people their pets, because I'd like to have one of those little beds with my name on it. Jack Handy Most people don't realize that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a child look like a deer. Jack Handy One of the worst things you can do as an actor, I think, is to forget your lines, and get so flustered you start stabbing the other actors. Jack Handy Sometimes life seems like a dream, especially when I look down and see that I forgot to put on my pants. Jack Handy

Terry Pratchett God does not play dice with the universe: He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time. Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman Good Omens I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it. Terry Pratchett 'Pessimist' is a word used by optimists to describe someone who sees the world for what it really is. Terry Pratchett
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. Terry Pratchett Do not always assume the other fellow has intelligence equal to yours. He may have more. Terry Thomas Freedom means having power, not the power to control other people but the power to control the circumstance of one’s own life. Theodore Kaczynski Unabomber Manifesto It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

You have the sweetest smile I've ever seen... So, I'm wondering, do the other cookie animals feel sorta ripped? Like, is the hippo going 'Hey man! Where are _my_ pants? I have my hippo dignity!’ And, you know, the monkey's just 'I mock you with my monkey pants!’ Willow: (laughs) Oz: And then there's a big coup at the zoo. Willow: The monkey is French?

Your friends are at the factory. I'm really glad I came here, you know? I've been all wrong-headed about this. Weepin', crawlin', blamin' everybody else. I want Dru back, I've just gotta be the man I was. The man she loved. I'm gonna do what I shoulda done in the first place. I'll find her--wherever she is--tie 'er up; torture her--'til she likes me again. Spike Yeah, I did a couple slayers in my time... I don't like to brag... Who am I kidding I love to brag!

Guns of Avalon I sometimes think of us as a gang of mean little old ladies in a combination rest home and obstacle course.

It became apparent that one reason why the Ice Giants were known as the Ice Giants was because they were, well, giants. The other was that they were made of ice. Sourcery Of course, Ankh-Morpork's citizens had always claimed that the river water was incredibly pure. Any water that had passed through so many kidneys, they reasoned, had to be very pure indeed.

Hey Joey, I wrote a song today, it's called 'get up'. Chandler Chandler: Hey, you guys in the living room all know what you want to do. You know, you have goals. You have dreams. I don’t have a dream. Ross: Ah, the lesser known ‘I Don’t Have a Dream’ speech. Hitting her with a frying pan is a good idea. We might want to have a backup plan though, just in case she isn't a cartoon. Chandler I'll show you to my room... That sounds so weird when it isn't followed by 'no thanks, it's late.' Chandler Joey ate my last stick of gum, so I killed him. Do you think that was wrong? Chandler Chandler: No, [nipple] it's totally useless. Rachel: As opposed to your other multi-functioning nipples?

Phoebe I think the baby kicked, oh no wait, oh no, it's the elastic in my underwear busted. Phoebe Phoebe: It's not mine, I didn't earn it; if I kept it, it would be like stealing. Rachel: Yeah, but if you spent it, it would be like shopping. Phoebe: Ok, ok, let's say I bought a really great pair of shoes with the money. Do you know what I'd hear with every step I took? 'Not-mine, not-mine, not-mine.' And even if I were happy, ok, and, and skipping, I'd hear 'notNOT-mine, notNOT-mine, notNOT-mine, notNOT-mine...' New York City has no power. And the milk is getting sour. But to me this is not scary, 'Cause I stay away from dairy. Phoebe Phoebe: No, Mr. Heckles, we're not making any noise. Mr. Heckles: You're disturbing my oboe practice. Phoebe: You don't even play the oboe! Mr. Heckles: I could play the oboe. Phoebe: Well, then I'll have to ask you to keep it down! Now go away so we can talk about you. Phoebe Now, I don't eat chicken soup, and there's no chicken in the broth, so it's really just chicken noodle water. Phoebe They have a liking problem with you... in that they don't.

Rachel: Tit for tat. Chandler: Well, I'm not showing you my tat. Ross: Didn't you read 'Lord if the Rings' in High School? Joey: No, I had sex in High School. Ross: Do you have a point? Chandler: You'd think I would. I suppose we're looking for a more sophisticated answer than, 'To get you into bed?' Ross Ross: I think my marriage might be kind of over. Phoebe: Oh my god, why? Ross: Cause Carol's a lesbian, and I'm not... and apparently it's not a mix and match situation. Ross: What did the doctor say? Joey: I have to wear a cast for a couple of weeks. Ross: What did you tell him when he asked you how you hurt it? Joey: Chandler sold me out; I had a whole story worked out. Chandler: Well, I'm sorry Joe I just don't think he would have believed that it just fell out of the socket. Ross: What did the insurance company say?

Hawkeye: Or the next time somebody nails my shoe to the floor... BJ: ...or when somebody gives me a martini that tastes like lighter fluid. Hawkeye: I'll miss you. BJ: I'll miss YOU.

So here's the deal: You freeze everything the way it is, and I won't ask for anything more. If that is OK, please give me absolutely no sign. OK, deal. In gratitude, I present you this offering of cookies and milk. If you want me to eat them for you, give me no sign. Thy will be done. Homer Simpson Don't let Krusty's death get you down, boy.

Homer Simpson You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is 'never try'. Homer Simpson Moe Szyslak: Hey, I don't need no advice from a pinball machine.

Moe Szyslak I'm cold. Can I have another straightjacket? Ned Flanders My cat's breath smells like cat food! Ralph Wiggum
This is my sandbox. I'm not allowed in the deep end. That's where I met the leprechaun. He tells me to burn things. Ralph Wiggum I'm presently incarcerated. Convicted of a crime I didn't even commit.

Yorick (Skull): Underground. Charlie: What are we doing underground? Yorick (Skull): These are grave circumstances Charlie. Charlie: I can’t tell you how rotten I feel. Well, actually I can. I feel like a two-pound ball of slug slime that’s been sitting in a closed container and turning Karen: Oh, stop! I get the idea. I just told my mother the truth! Charlie Charlie: I’m in no mood for jokes. Yorick (Skull): Bad sign. Do you have a fever? Charlie: It’s getting worse! Yorick (Skull): What’s getting worse? Your haircut? Your breath? Your grade-point average? Charlie: Your jokes! She saw the toad’s butt sticking out of Gilbert’s mouth. Charlie
Charlie: What’s the king’s name? Yorick (Skull): Hamlet. Charlie: Are you kidding? The ‘to be or not be’ guy? Yorick (Skull): No, that would be the little git sitting on my back and turning my ribs black and blue. Charlie: What’s the message? Jerome (Rat): Let us in. Charlie: That’s not the message! Charlie: Why ask a question if you already know the answer? Yorick (Skull): To be annoying. Charlie: You can say that again! Yorick (Skull): Nah, you heard me the first time. Charlie: You kind of scare me. Jerome (Rat): Well, you scare me. Gramma: I wanted to be a mother. Once you do that, you stop doing a lot of other things that you love, at least for a while.

Gramma: An ecdysiast is a striptease dancer Gramma: Just how stupid do you think I am? Uncle Bennie: Actually, I think you’re quite a smart old dame. I just wish you weren’t so cranky.

Andy Simmons ate a bug today! Mimi I dreamed I was a monkey. What did you dream? Mimi Like that? Well it’s not for sale. Now what are you here for? Mr. Elives Tiffany: But what about Do-As-You-Love? Did he die too? Ms. Priest: Oh, of course he did. We all do, eventually.
Tiffany: Well, what happened when he went to heaven? Ms. Priest: He never noticed the difference. Truth: Time is but an illusion. We will get there when we get there. Charlie: Great! She – he - whatever! – is as annoying as you are! Old Woman: Do you think I’m ugly? Yorick (When Alive): Well, you aren’t the queen of May. Hope he doesn’t ask me if I liked tonight’s show.

Charlie: The Skull of Truth Dave: Boy, I can tell you two are from the same family Bennie. He’s as weird as you are! Uncle Bennie: Take that as a compliment. Wild and strange – like me!

Yorick (Skull): I don’t have the slightest idea. Yorick (Skull): Best joke I ever knew was about Millard Fillmore. Screamingly funny. Unfortunately, I doubt one person in a million would understand it today. Charlie: Who’s Millard Fillmore? Do you suppose you could get rid of your shoulders for a while? Yorick (Skull) Forget it. I wouldn’t hurt a fly. No, that’s not true. I hate flies. Always buzzing around me, creeping into my eye sockets. Man I hate when they get inside and crawl around. Tickles like crazy. I’d swat them in an instant if I still had hands. But I wouldn’t hurt you, not after the favour you did me today! Yorick (Skull) Hey, just because I only tell the truth doesn’t mean I have to make sense. Half of what I say is stranger than fiction. But it’s all true. Guaranteed.
Yorick (Skull) Yorick (Skull): I am not a thing. I am a child of the universe. Karen: Is he always like this? Charlie: No. Sometimes he’s even worse. Yorick (Skull): It’s a gift. Yorick (Skull): I cannot tell a lie, even if I try. Dee dee-dee dee-dee, die dee-die dee-die. Charlie: I never thought a dead person would find things so funny. Yorick (Skull): You think if I start to cry it will bring me back to life? If I had a body, I’d shiver. Yorick (Skull) I mean, don’t leave your hands lying on the desk like a pair of dead pigeons. Yorick (Skull) I take you were so impressed with how incredibly handsome I look sans hair that you decided to try it for yourself? Yorick (Skull) Yorick (Skull): It was fate. Charlie: Fate, my foot! I had no intention of stealing you from that shop. Yorick (Skull): Oh, calm down. It won’t hurt you to tell the truth for a while. Charlie: Hurt me? Something like that could kill me! Once you’re dead they bury you - at least, they do if they don’t want you smelling the place up. Yorick (Skull) The closet? You’re going to put me in the closet? Yorick (Skull) The only people who can get away with telling the absolute truth are fools and poets. Yorick (Skull) Yorick (Skull): Uh-oh Toto. I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore. Charlie: We weren’t in Kansas to begin with. Yorick (Skull): If you think Truth is annoying, you ought to try living with you.
