I found a few good quotes by Samuel Clemens whilst whiling away my day on this darned interweb, but this one caught my eye:

 

"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."

 

I see the phrase Clothes make the WOMAN, but that's just me.

 

Anyone care to share their favorite quotes?

This really isn't a quote, but it is one of my favorite movie lines.

 

From: Star Trek V The Final Frontier

 

"Don't worry about me captain, I know this ship like the back of my hand".

Spoken by Scotty as he walks right into a bulkhead and knocks himself out.

 

Reminds me a lot of myself. I claim to know something then I find out how much I really know .

For all of those of us (and that must be 99.999999999999999% of the population) who are different; from having a passion for fur to having two heads - Johnny Eck says it all!

"Why do I wear real fur?

Because it is voluptuous, sumptuous, very beautiful, very warm and very soft".

Not sure who said this, but it pretty much sums up my current mood atm:

 

"Opinions are like assholes - everybody's got one"

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

"Frankly my dear I dont give a damn" clark gable to vivien Leigh in gone with the Wind. No reason; just like the way he had to emphasise give intead of damn for censorsip reasons. Sometimes its not WHAT is said but the way it is said.

Thats why churcills quotes always come to mind. Especially "we will fight them on the beaches.....and we will NEVER surrender". That ought to be our furden anti PETA slogan.

 

 

 

Incidentally my girlf is the spitting image of Vivienne Leigh.

I quite like what is written on Spike Milligan's headstone:

 

"I told you I was Ill"

 

A joker to the last, bless 'im!! Also, you may want to consider a brief exchange during one Sketch from his "Q" series:

 

"You're standing on my hole."

 

"well, you must be a funny shape!"

 

Classic!!
