What they said:

Sometimes, when I look at my children,
I say to myself,
"Barbara, you should have remained a virgin."
-- Barbara Bush (mother of G.W.)

I had a rose named after me
and I was very flattered.
But I was not pleased to
read the description in the catalog:
"No good in a bed, but fine against a wall."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

The secret of a good sermon
is to have a good beginning
and a good ending;
and to have the two as
close together as possible.
-- George Burns

Santa Claus has the right idea.
Visit people only once a year.
- - Victor Borge

Be careful about reading health books.
You may die of a misprint.
-- Mark Twain

By all means, marry.
If you get a good wife,
you'll become happy;
if you get a bad one,
you'll become a philosopher.
-- Socrates

I was married by a judge.
I should have asked for a jury.
-- Groucho Marx

I don't feel old.
I don't feel anything until noon.
Then it's time for my nap.
-- Bob Hope

I never drink water
because of the disgusting things
that fish do in it.
-- W.C. Fields

We could certainly slow
the aging process down
if it had to work its way through Congress.
-- Will Rogers

Don't worry about avoiding temptation
as you grow older,
it will avoid you.
-- Winston Churchill

Maybe it's true that life begins at fifty.
But everything else starts to wear out,
fall out, or spread out.
-- Phyllis Diller

By the time a man is
wise enough to watch his step,
he's too old to go anywhere.
---Billy Crystal

The cardiologist's diet:
If it tastes good, spit it out

They've shown quite a few of his shows over the years on my local PBS station. I agree; I've always enjoyed his shows.

A quote from the last x-men movie.

You're beautiful, hank. Everything you are. You're perfect.
We are different, but we should be trying to fit into society.
Society should aspire to be more like us.
Mutant and proud.

I asked for strength and I was given difficulties to make me strong,
I asked for wisdom and I got problems to solve,
I asked for prosperity and I got brain and brawn to work,
I asked for courage and I had danger to overcome,
I asked for love and was given troubled people to help,
I asked for favours and was given opportunities,
I received nothing I wanted but received everything I needed.

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #353

I have long believed that we as human beings are genetically inclined to elevate and worship those of us we deem to be very beautiful or very talented. We do this because we are somehow comforted by our adoration. It makes us feel good. As children we sleep beneath the images of movie, TV, music and sports stars and dream about the mystery and grandeur of their lives. As adults, the posters come off the wall, only to be replaced by a steady, noxious stream of tabloid culture. But perhaps most enjoyable of all is watching the fall from grace. Nothing beats a good ol' public crucifixion. Especially when it's self-inflicted. My theory for why this is considered entertainment is, again, a genetic one. DNA, even if it's mediocre, wants to ensure its own survival. The existence of superior DNA is viewed as a threat. When beautiful and talented people screw up, we can't help but feel that this somehow improves the chances for our mediocre descendants to eat meat. In other words, evolution my ass.

Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. - Albert Camus
