Quote Of The Day

Yep, another brainchild of the random insomniac that is teh Ice.

Simple premise. Share an insightful, funny, monivational crude or just downright random quote. easy huh?

"Relationships are hard. It's like a full-time job, and we should treat
it like one. If your boyfriend or girlfriend wants to leave you, they
should give you two weeks' notice. There should beseverance pay, and
before they leave you, they should have to find you a temp."
--Bob Ettinger

From the beautiful Jane Austen:

I do not want people to be agreeable, as it saves me that trouble of liking them.

A few favorites from Woody Allen:

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying."

"I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland."

"Interestingly, according to modern astronomers, space is finite. This is a very comforting thought-- particularly for people who can never remember where they have left things."

(1) Things will get worse before they get better.
(2) Who said things would get better?

Nice quotes Jake. I love Woody Allen. My personal favourite has to be:

"I'm short enough and ugly enough to succeed on my own"

Hilarious !!

I would like to add one by Wagner :
"I have long been convinced that my artistic ideal stands or falls with Germany. Only the Germany that we love and desire can help us achieve that ideal."

From another character "attracted" to Poland :
"Gaiety is the most outstanding feature of the Soviet Union".
"The Pope? How many divisions has he got?"
- Stalin

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is having lots to do and not doing it.

I think that when you invite people to your home, you invite them to yourself. - Oprah Winfrey

Do you think she has a writer specifically for coming out with this pretentious crap? Don't get me wrong, Oprah is God but she has some godawful quotes.

This is William Butler Yeats... The poem is 'He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven' and the part goes like this:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
- W. B. Yeats
