the quote thread

A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

I think we need a quote thread. Post your witty remarks here! XD

I'll start it off:

Douglas Adams wrote:BOOK What to do if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground
underneath a giant boulder you can't move, with no hope of
rescue. Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to
you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so
far, which given your current circumstances seems more likely,
consider how lucky you are that it won't be troubling you much
longer.

- Comforting advice for Ford and Arthur in this current
situation, Fit the Eighth.

Arthur C. Clarke wrote:The challenge of the great spaces between the worlds is a stupendous one,
but if we fail to meet it, the story of our race will be drawing to a
close. Humanity will have turned its back upon the still untrodden heights
and will be descending again the long slope that stretches, across a
thousand million years of time, down to the shores of the primaeval sea.

"For a man to truly understand rejection, he must first be ignored by a cat."

I think Robert Heinlein is supposed to have said it.

Paul Dirac wrote:In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.


I'm just going through my quote-book in order of how I've written them, so I expect sometime to run across one that y'all have already written...so if I forget and write a repeat quote, that's why (mentioning it now because I think that 'cat' one of Jonnie's is in my book somewhere).

my quote file is Jonnie's. :P

or from some website that might have a quote by whoever. like, say, Tori Amos. etc.

*rummages online*

Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone - but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding. - Bette Davis

Isaac Asimov wrote:If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to
save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the
pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous
atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God, and whose
every deed is foul, foul, foul.


I'll probably end up repeating quotes too; I have so many in my quote files that some of them are in there twice.

And speaking of quotes, my .sig is a quote by Rod Serling
"We will not end the nightmare, we will only explain it."
