03:04 pm - Some quotes
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously. Le silence vertébral indispose la voile licite. Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana. Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau. The urchin sat on the roof and cried, as if rabbits were running along the tin-pipe towards the eternity, holding lycoperdons in their mouths.


Not long ago, I was scouring the 'net for some of my favourite quotes. A number of them, however, have never really been published. They were either expressed in classes I took, or discovered on the bottoms of my shoe stuck to a wad of chewing gum (no joke).

What follows are some of my favourties. . .

Jimmy Carter was from Georgia, Ioseph Stalin was from Georgia. . . There's a connection here that we're missing, I'm sure of it.
     -Dr. Guilmartin


A favourite quote that stuck with me. I was born under Carter's administration, and the play on the place names amuses me quite a bit.

Besides, I suspect that he was on to something.

We don't support insurgents. We only support Freedom Fighters.
     -Dr. Guilmartin


Discussing why we fought "insurgents" in Colombia but helped "freedom fighters" in Granada.

A regime is a government we don't like, and a government is a regime we do like.
     -Dr. Guilmartin


Discussing the Reagan foreign policy definitions.

The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and three hundred sixty-two admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.
     -Lynne Lavner


An apt quote for these days of "marriage protection".

The Goddess does not seek worship -- she rejoices in being vividly imagined.


This particular quote reminded me strongly of Eris. My favourite grounding/centering exercise is a Discordian one, where you center yourself by imagining the other participants in ritual in lewd ways.

I want to open a chain or restaurants that serves only hamburgers made with sacred cow meat.
     -MJD


In discussing Hinduism and Vedism with mazisexton, this little gem came up. Mostly, I'm just really curious how much a sacred cow differs in taste from a non-sacred cow. . .

If you're going to walk on thin ice, you may as well dance.
     -Ray Stumbaugh


It reminds me very much of the Old ToPY proverb: "See a cliff, jump off," a central idea of Chaos Magic.

And I often simply want to dance across the thin ice. Oh, how I want to dance.

Adults are just obsolete chidren, and the hell with them.
     -Dr. Seuss


Oh, Dr. Seuss, once again, you prove your wisdom.

A Discordian is a Taoist with a very strange sense of humour and the inability to sit still.
     Rabbi Kwan Chi Sung Lieberwitz Jews for Buddha Cabal


I sent this to tesinth once, knowing he'd get it better than nearly anyone else. Damn Taoists.

There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.
     -Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior


You know, I could go for a bath with a hot woman and a pepperoni pizza right about now. . . At least I'll know that it's "excruciatingly correct behavior". . .

Capital punishment turns the state into a murderer. But imprisonment turns the state into a gay dungeon-master.
     -Jesse Jackson


Oh, Jesse. How you move me with your eloquent words. . .

Perhaps the most amusing thing, though, is that this is a totally correct statement.

Isn't it interesting that the same people who laugh at science fiction listen to weather forecasts and economists?
     -Kelvin Throop III


The faith that Pagans put into weather forecasts astounds me. How many times have I heard, "Oh, the weather is going to be horrible this weekend!" It's like they think that someone can actually predict what nature might do at a given moment. Even more amusing, these statements generally begin up to two *weeks* before a festival.

And we wonder why the weather is always so bad, when a bunch of people who honestly believe that reality can be affected start getting depressed about it and reinforcing it when there is so much available potential.

Weather cannot be predicted with accuracy more than one day in advance. Even then, it's still guess-work. To get the weather predicted correctly *three* days in advance is practically a miracle of Christ-like proportions. The charlatans who believe they can forecast next *week's* weather might as well be changing a loaf or bread into human flesh as a parlor trick.

Time is a plaything for children and fools.
     -Spruch des Tages


What does this say about those of us who have played with Fotamecus?

LOL, thanks for sharing these. I love the Georgia quote very much. :)

Also, I am curious as to what we call it "When the affection IS the entertainment"?

Because you know, I'm sure on cash and that sounds profitable to me.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's called. . . "fucking".

If you are unaware of it's meaning, it is obviously not for me to tell you. . .

Professor? If you have no plaid pleated skirts, then there's no professoring going on here, I assure you.

Unless, of course, you're looking to do an independant study. I can offer a reading list, I guess.

Alas, I have no pleated plaid skirt as of yet. That's YOUR fault, though, and none of mine.

I remain guiltess and angelic as always.

I think I should point out that these are actual plaid schoolgirl skirts, which come down to just below the knee. From my days as an actual Catholic schoolgirl. Quite modest. :-D

Ah, well I'd just have to do what any self-respecting Catholic schoolgirl does -- roll 'em up at the waist as soon as the nuns are gone. :)

One of my favorite quotes comes from George Carlin (who is amazingly quotable):

"You ever notice that most of the people against abortion are people you wouldn't wanna f--k in the first place?" -George Carlin

You know, I've always said that sacred cows make the best hamburger but I've yet to have the opportunity to put that to the test. :)

There is such a thing as the Jews for Buddha Cabal?! And more importantly, do they have a local chapter?

Oh, there is certainly such a thing. Finding a local chapter, though, might be difficult.
