Most quotes given on this thread (but mine of course) are unspeakable horrors for me. And some of their authors too.

I guess, tennis must be a bourgeois sport, and so are its fans.

Well, that might work for the cock, but a wise man would know how many bushels of barleycorn a precious stone can buy.

“You may be sure that the Americans will commit all the stupidities they can think of, plus some that are beyond imagination.” Well as an American I can truly agree with this quote! We keep doing the same stupid things while expecting to get different results! And I don't know who said this, but it applies here--"Insanity is to keep doing the same things the same way all the time and expecting difference results."

Default Re: Favourtie Quotes

I think American governments were referred to, here, not the people.


By the way, lacks some Pasolini quotes here:

"The anxiety to consume is an anxiety to obey an unspoken order. Everyone in Italy feels the degrading anxiety to be equal to others in consuming, in being happy, in being free: because this is the order he has unconsciously received, and which he must obey, to avoid feeling "different." Never has being different been such an appalling crime as it is now, in this time of tolerance."

(in "Corsair Writings")

So, accurate.

The American Government is supposed to represent the American people, but they don't! And as an American I still totally agree with that quote!

"Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured." - Mark Twain

Sorry I'm not up to your standards in quotes, but you are obviously much smarter than I am!
