I know someone who did. He sh*t in a pot of resin and catalyst, fished it out and polished it when it had set hard. Then put it on his shelf. He was progressing nicely towards insanity when I last saw him...

MASH :

Charles: Sir, my father knows Harry Truman. He doesn't like him, but he knows him.

Col. Potter: Fine, you have dad call Harry, then have Harry call me, and then we will work something out. In the mean time, vamoose.

Charles: Yes, sir, I am... vamoosing. But know this. You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer.
Col. Potter: I think he's starting to get the hang of this place.

Re: Favorite Quotes

I guess this line spoken by Sean Connery in The Rock is one of my favorites, since I found myself quoting it today when I was encouraged to do my best: "Losers always whine about doing their best; winners go home and kiss the prom queen."  Only neither Sir Sean nor I actually said "kiss". . .

"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul." from the classic novel, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.

It sounds like a damn enviable attachment and love to a romantic's ears. That sort of romanticized never-let-go love and lust in the old movies.

Saving is a very fine thing, especially if your parents have done it for you - Churchill

Time you enjoy wasting was not wasted - John Lennon

The world is like a book and those who do not travel read but one page of it - Saint Augustine

I'm sure I read the next one once, but I've never been able to find the source and am starting to wonder if I dreamt it, although modesty tends to stamp out the idea that my own subconscious could produce it  ajb007/wink

It takes great courage to put down words that could be evidence of your stupidity.

I find the last one particularly inspiring and have it above my desk when working  ajb007/smile  I think a blank page is the hardest thing to start writing on.

I have still yet to see the Bond film where this line came from, Jim Carrey did a Connery impression saying this quote in Ace Ventura and ive always asumed its from one of the Bond flicks.

"You are just as well placed to argue with any of the greats in the library."

Today I had the hangover from hell. I woke up to find a deflating rubber swimming ring on my bedroom floor and vague memories of swinging my shirt round my head in a nightclub to the Baywatch theme.
Somehow I made it to my lecture.

The quote is from my lecturer. I'm studying English and History at university and today's lecture was for a module that is basically preparation for my History dissertation next year.
The idea that my lecturer will consider my work in comparison with that of some of the authors that I admire and are held in such high esteem by other academics was hugely inspiring and I will never forget it.  ajb007/smile

I have a habit of noting down quotes from teachers and lecturers. I remembered one from my A Level English teacher. His incredulous response to a student's very brief review of Shakespeare's Othello:

"You 'don't rate' Othello?!"

ajb007/lol

Incidentally, I do rate Othello! Despite it not being my favourite Shakespearean tragedy, it does at the very least IMO surpass Romeo and Juliet.

That is the one thing I like about Mitt Romney - he has said a couple of things that reminds me of the last Republican president. Maybe he can make a new law that permits windows in airplanes to be opened? Obama is too cool and well spoken - Bush jr was a lot funnier!

Re: Favorite Quotes

I think it's a pity that the two best known quotes from this presidential campaign are both very much taken out of context. I'm of cource refering to "I like to be able to fire people" (Romney) and "You didn't build that!" (Obama)
