O, meine Herren Spießer, Sie sagen, die Kunst sei in Gefahr? Ja, wissen Sie nicht, daß die Kunst eine schöne weibliche Gestalt ist, ohne Kleidung, daß sie darauf rechnet, ins Bett genommen zu werden, oder dazu anzuspornen? Nein, meine Herren, die Kunst ist nicht in Gefahr - denn die Kunst existiert nicht mehr! Sie ist tot.

Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.

(Terry Pratchett, *1948)




He didn't look around, and watch and learn, and then say. This is how people are, how do we deal with it?' No, he sat and thought: This is how the people ought to be, how do we change them?' And that was a good enough thought for a priest but not for a copper because Swing's patient, pedantic way of operating had turned policing on its head.

(Terry Pratchett, *1948)




They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

If you took cigarettes away from the 20th century, we wouldn't have any of the writers you go on about. They just would not exist, and I want this acknowledged. In fact, I think non-smokers should be barred from buying any product that a smoker created."

Generic Wisdom


A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired.
