KHftCEA Appendix D From Tufts Sigs pt 1

Because I had no shoes.
But then I met a man who had no feet.
And I said, "friend, can I have your shoes?"

"Fear is the lock, and laughter the key to your heart."
--Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
"Quitters never win."
  "But what if it was a quitting contest? One of them might win then, right?"
"Well, we all got misery, but it passes, it always passes!"
--Mike Feder, "New York Son"
"I would have made a good pope."
--Richard Milhous Nixon
the truth that lies closest, however, is only this, that you are beating your head against the wall of a windowless and doorless cell.
--Kafka 10/21/1921
"Lord what fools these mortals be"
"Psst!  Father Restrepo!  If that story about hell is a lie, we're all fucked, aren't we..."
--Isabel Allende, "The House of the Spirits"
"I like frogs, and their outlook, and the way they get together in wet places on warm nights and sing about sex."
"People are sheer stark raving crazy nuts.  Quote me."
--Jack Poderhotz, as quoted by Garrison Keillor
"Life is so peculiah don't let anybody fool ya!"
--Five Guys Named Moe
"I had to shoot my dog!"
  "Oh, was it mad?"

Man is certainly stark mad; he cannot make a flea, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens.
Today is the first day of the rest of your short,brutish existence as a sentient creature before being snuffed out into utter nothingness for all eternity.

"Now that I'm enlightened, I'm just as miserable as ever."
If A equals success, then the formula is A = X + Y + Z.  X is work.  Y is play.  Z is keep your mouth shut.

"Now is the winter of our discontent-- and I'm gonna make snowballs!"
There is no TRUTH.  There is no REALITY.  There is no CONSISTENCY.  There are no ABSOLUTE STATEMENTS   I'm very probably wrong.  
I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops.  But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn't fair.  It's just fairer than death, that's all.
--William Goldman, "The Princess Bride"
"If I want to think about having sex with 87 peacocks I can and it's not a crime, but in reality they might not be up for it, you know!"
--Bjork in "the Guardian" - June 2nd 1995
"Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death."
Proof that an elephant and a flea have the same weight:
e = weight of elephant
f = weight of flea
d = difference between e and f
e = f + d
e (e - f) = (f + d) (e - f)
ee - ef = ef - ff + de - df
ee - ef - de = ef - ff - df
e (e - f - d) = f (e - f - d)
e = f
The weight of an elephant equals the weight of a flea, QED.
That's the whole point; at least I think that's what Bethrah was saying although it's difficult to accept.  I mean it seems horrible that the most you can do for people you love is to leave them alone.
--Dymphna Willson, "A Different Drummer"
Here is my song for the asking
Ask me, and I will play
So sweetly, I'll make you smile.
--Paul Simon, "Song For The Asking"
Romeo was restless
he was ready to kill
Jumped out the window
'cause he couldn't sit still
Juliet was waitin'
with a safety net-
said "don't bury me
'cause I'm not dead yet"
-Elvis Costello, "Mystery Dance"
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call            
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo   
The way we look to us all                 
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky       
These are the days of miracle and wonder  
So don't cry, baby, don't cry             
Don't cry                                 
--Paul Simon, "Boy in the Bubble"
