"We're like actors, turned loose in this world to wander in search of a phantom, endlessly searching for a half-formed shadow of our lost reality. When others demand that we become the people they want us to be, they force us to destroy the person we really are. It's a subtle kind of murder. The most loving parents and relatives commit this murder with smiles on their faces." - Jim Morrison

"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more." -Erica Jong

"A man who doesn't spend time with his family, can never be a real man." -Don Vito

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut and still think that they are sexy.

Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
Ben Franklin 1706-1790

Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed by the facts.
Finley Peter Dunne 1867-1936


The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.
Mark Twain 1835-1910

Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.

Its better to be hated for who you are, than loved for who you're not.

Sitting in Church doesn't make you any more of a Christian, than standing in the garage makes you a Cadillac.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than its worth.

"I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters."
- Frank Lloyd Wright (1868-1959)
"The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good."
- Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
I have often regretted my speech, never my silence."

"Delusions are often functional. A mother’s opinions about her children’s beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth."

" There is only one way to console a widow. But remember the risk."

"You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once."

"Courage is the compliment of fear. A man who is fearless cannot be courageous. (He is also a fool.)"

"The most preposterous notion that H. Sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all of history."

"Never crowd youngsters about their private affairs--sex especially. When they are growing up they are nerve ends all over, and resent (quite properly) any invasions of their privacy. Oh sure, they’ll make mistakes--but that’s their business, not yours. (You made your own mistakes, did you not?)"

" A whore should be judged by the same criteria as other, professionals offering services for pay--such as dentists, lawyers, hairdressers, physicians, plumbers, etc. Is she professionally competent? Does she give good measure? Is she honest with her clients? It is possible that the percentage of honest and competent whores is higher than that of plumbers and much higher than that of lawyers. And enormously higher than that of professors."

" The correct way to punctuate a sentence that starts: “Of course It is none of my business but--” is to place a period after the word “but.”"

"Formal courtesy between husband and wife is even more important than it is between strangers."

"Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other sins are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful--just stupid.) "

Always remember that your final destination... is the same as everyone elses.

Ah, yes, divorce... from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet.
Robin Williams


Love, the quest; marriage, the conquest; divorce, the inquest.
Helen Rowland

If your parents never had children, chances are... neither will you.
Dick Cavett


“The difference between divorce and legal separation is that a legal separation gives a husband time to hide his money.” ~ Johnny Carson
