Humour springs from rage, hay fever, overdue rent and miscellaneous hell. ~ Will Cuppy #quote

I see many people die because they judge that life is not worth living. I see others paradoxically getting killed for the ideas or illusions that give them a reason for living (what is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying). I therefore conclude that the meaning of life is the most urgent of questions. ~ Albert Camus #quote, The Myth of Sisyphus

Find out what you're afraid of and go live there. ~ Chuck Palahniuk #quote

Anger repressed can poison a relationship as surely as the cruelest words. ~ Dr. Joyce Brothers #quote

A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires. ~ Joseph Conrad #quote

Democracy don't rule the world, you better get that in your head; this world is ruled by violence, but I guess that's better left unsaid. ~ Bob Dylan #quote

The supreme satisfaction is to be able to despise one's neighbour and this fact goes far to account for religious intolerance. It is evidently consoling to reflect that the people next door are headed for hell. ~ Aleister Crowley #quote

Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them. ~ Salvador Dali #quote

I feel my belief in sacrifice and struggle getting stronger. I despise the kind of existence that clings to the miserly trifles of comfort and self-interest.

One woman who managed to corner him, the story runs, said in a treacly gushing voice: Doesn't it thrill you, Mr. Churchill, to know that every time you make a speech the hall is packed to overflowing?

The mistakes are all waiting to be made. ~ chessmaster Savielly Grigorievitch Tartakower #quote on the game's opening position

You have to believe in yourself, that's the secret. Even when I was in the orphanage, when I was roaming the street trying to find enough to eat, even then I thought of myself as the greatest actor in the world. I had to feel the exuberance that comes from utter confidence in yourself. Without it, you go down to defeat. ~ Charlie Chaplin #quote


A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold. ~ Ogden Nash #quote
