The loading of my Diaryland notes has slowed so I'm editing out some of the old messages. All the quotes will eventually be moved to pages in the diary.


"O You whom I often and silently come where you are, that I may be with you; as I walk by your side, or sit near, or remain in the same room with you, little you know the subtle electric fire that for your sake is playing within me." Walt Whitman

"I like libraries. It makes me feel comfortable and secure to have walls of words, beautiful and wise, all around me. I always feel better when I can see that there is something to hold back the shadows." Roger Zelazny

"I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will." Henry David Thoreau

"I keep a conscience uncorrupted by religion, a judgment undimmed by politics and patriotism, a heart untainted by friendships, and sentiments unsoured by animosities." Ambrose Bierce

"There comes a time in every man's life when he's consumed by the desire to spit on his palms, hoist the black flag and start cutting throats."
Henry Louis Mencken

"Once you see that everything is unreal, you can't see why you should bother to prove it." E. M. Cioran

"I maintain nonetheless that yin-yang dualism can be overcome. With sufficient enlightenment we can give substance to any distinction: mind without body, north without south, pleasure without pain. Remember, enlightenment is a function of willpower, not of physical strength." Chairman Sheng-ji Yang, Essays on Mind and Matter

"The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction."
William Blake

"I don't believe in an afterlife, so I don't have to spend my whole life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse." Issac Asimov

"Well, I believe in the soul... the cock... the pussy... the small of a woman's back... the hangin' curveball... high fiber... good scotch... that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap... I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Goodnight." Crash Davis

"A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices." William James

"Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped." Elbert Hubbard

"Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain." Lily Tomlin

"People who backseat-drive streams of consciousness and never pause for breath grow up to be stern task masters of worthless consideration. Think, people, think. Feeling is altogether useless without thought."

"The absurd is born of the confrontation between the human call and the unreasonable silence of the world." Albert Camus

"Any great work of art revives and readapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world -- the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air." Leonard Bernstein

"The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues."
Elizabeth Taylor

"The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it." Oscar Wilde"

"Too much of a good thing is WONDERFUL." Mae West


Twelve from queentrixie:

"My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself." Noel Coward

"If you could understand everything I said, you'd be me." Miles Davis

"Reality is whatever refuses to go away when I stop believing in it."
Philip K. Dick

"Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly."
Rose Franken

"Tell the truth and run." Yugoslavian Proverb

"I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me." Noel Coward

"If it's against state law, it's generally considered a breach of Etiquette." Miss Manners

"You appeal to a small, select group of confused people." Fortune cookie

"There ain't no rules around here. We're trying to accomplish something." Thomas Edison

"The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind." Humphrey Bogart

"Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted."
Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love, 1963

"You remind me of a poem I can't remember, and a song that may never have existed, and a place I've never been to."
Abraham J. (Grandpa) Simpson


"I have found God, but He is insufficient. I am only spiritually dead. Physically, I am alive. Morally, I am free. The world I leave behind is a menagerie. The dawn is breaking on a new world. A jungle world, in which the lean spirits roam with sharp claws. If I am a hyena, I am a lean and hungry one. I go forth to fatten myself." Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." Albert Einstein

"Life's tough. It's tougher if you're stupid." John Wayne

"The problem with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat." Jane Wagner

"Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live." Oscar Wilde

"The spirit and the body carry different loads and require different attentions. Too often we put the saddlebags on Jesus and let the donkey run loose in the pasture." Rumi (Coleman Barks, Trans.)

"The fact is that anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days." Flannery O'Connor

"What do you despise? By this are you truly known." Frank Herbert, Dune

From queentrixie:
"I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves." August Strindberg

"Women like cats, men say they like cats, but when women aren't around, men kick cats." Willie Heath

"Wherever there is human despair, there is Walmart." The Sardonic Bomb, Ten Great Truths,

"Porn and art. Two great tastes that taste great together." Mei,

"'Oh Bother,' said Pooh as he stared into the unspeakable visage of Cthulhu."

"'Know thyself?' If I knew myself, I'd run away." Goethe

"The road to truth is long, and lined the entire way with annoying bastards." Alexander Jablokov

"I'm definitely not wearing my underwear." Raymond (The Rain Man)


"To be patriotic, hate all nations but your own; to be religious, all sects but your own; to be moral, all pretenses but your own." Lionel Strachey

"Not by speeches and majority votes are the great questions of the day decided, but by blood and iron." Bismarck

"It infuriates me to be wrong when I know I'm right." Moliere
