From the late great Dave Allen.

"You look at old folk and you say to yourself, 'When get to that age, I'll shoot myself.' Only, when you get to that age, you know you want to shoot someone but you can't remember who it is."

My personal website is essentially a collection of my favorite quotes:

Loved your site Cori. I had a fondness for James Burke and, funnily enough, I almost posted one of his howlers as my favourite quote...On one of the lunar landings, when they were packing up to come home..."There they go, looning up the loader modules." And of course, that's exactly what they were doing.

Mark Twain is always good for quotes:

"Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."

"Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer."

"Few things are harder to put up with than a good example."

One of my favorite howlers comes from Elizabeth I. While bowing before her, a courtier broke wind. He was so ashamed he exiled himself from court for many years. When he returned, Good Queen Bess welcomed him back with pleasure. Then she wickedly said:

"My lord, I had forgot the fart."

A quote from Benjamin Franklin keeps running through my head over the past few years:

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

And another from Ben:

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

I once owned a t-shirt which said

'I'm fat, you're ugly - but I can diet'

I love Mark Twain: "All you in need in life is ignorance and confidence and then success is sure."

I like a quote for every day.
"My life needs editing" - Milt Abel

"Not a shred of evidence exists in favour of the idea that life is serious" - Brendon Gill

"I don't exercise. If God intended that I do push ups, he would have put diamonds on the floor" - Joan Rivers

"If it weren't for the gutter, my mind would be homeless!"

"Curosity killed the cat. But for awhile there, I was the suspect" - Steven Wright

"I sometimes think that God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability" - Oscar Wilde

"80% of life is just showing up" - Woody Allen

arty_farty reminded me of one:

There are 10 sorts of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
