We’re having something a little different this year for Thanksgiving. Instead of a turkey, we’re having a swan. You get more stuffing.
Rhetoric paints with a broad brush.
Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
Some people see the cup as half empty. Some people see the cup as half full. I see the cup as too large.
Let a smile be your umbrella, and you’ll end up with a face full of rain.
Standing ovations have become far too commonplace. What we need are ovations where the audience members all punch and kick one another.
Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.
The very existence of flamethrowers 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.’
Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.
Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist
Religion is just mind control
I am not a complete vegetarian. I eat only animals that have died in their sleep
I’m completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
Weather forecast for tonight: dark.
There will be a rain dance Friday night, weather permitting
I have a suggestion that I think would help fight serious crime. Signs. There are lots of signs for minor infractions: No Smoking, Stay Off the Grass, Keep Out, and they seem to work fairly well. I think we should also have signs for major crimes: Murder Strictly Prohibited, NO Raping People, Thank You for Not Kidnapping Anyone. It’s certainly worth a try. I’m convinced Watergate would never have happened if there had just been a sign in the Oval Office that said, Malfeasance of Office Is Strictly Against the Law, or Thank You for Not Undermining the Constitution.
Scientists announced today that they have discovered a cure for apathy. However, they claim no one has shown the slightest interest in it.
Regarding jam sessions: Jazz musicians are the only workers I can think of who are willing to put in a full shift for pay and then go somewhere else and continue to work for free.
And, of course, the funniest food of all, kumquats.
Regarding the Boy Scouts, I’m very suspicious of any organization that has a handbook.
The paradox of our time in history is that:
we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
we spend more, but have less;
we buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
wee have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicine, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions,
but reduces our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, hate too often.
We learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We’ve added years to life, but not life to years.
W’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space;
we’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;
we’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice;
we have higher incomes, but lower morals;
we’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are the times of tall men, and short character;
steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace
but domestic warfare;
more leisure, but less fun;
more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce;
of fancier houses, but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the show window
and nothing in the stockroom;
a time when technology can bring this letter to you,
and a time when you can choose
either to make a difference—
or just hit delete.
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.-
People who say they don’t care what people think are usually desperate to have people think they don’t care what people think.
Some people see things that are and ask, Why? Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not? Some people have to go to work and don’t have time for all that …
