Quotes:

You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon.' Need I say more?
View quotes by Chris Rock

It is not in fighting that my God delights but in causing the trees to grow, and in adorning the plains with grass and flowers. He loves not the proud warrior nor the hunter, but the lowly and the good
View quotes by Standish O'Grady

'I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.'
View quotes by Anne Frank

Poisoned by his mother? It is good, very good. It ranks up there with 'I got it from the toilet seat' (on Shane Warne's explanation for using a banned substance)
View quotes by Dick Pound

I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That's were the fun is.
View quotes by Donald Trump

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.
View quotes by John Wooden

The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.
View quotes by Voltaire

Conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long; even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.
View quotes by Louisa May Alcott

Buying the right computer and getting it to work properly is no more complicated than building a nuclear reactor from wristwatch parts in a darkened room using only your teeth.
View quotes by Dave Barry

Everything considered, work is less boring than amusing oneself.
View quotes by Charles Baudelaire

The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game. The cynic puts all human actions into two classes - openly bad and secretly bad.
View quotes by Henry Ward Beecher

The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it.
View quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Freedom consists not in refusing to recognize anything above us, but in respecting something which is above us; for by respecting it, we raise ourselves to it, and, by our very acknowledgment, prove that we bear within ourselves what is higher, and are worthy to be on a level with it.
View quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

We drive into the future using only our rearview mirror.
View quotes by Marshall McLuhan

Ideally, advertising aims at the goal of a programmed harmony among all human impulses and aspirations and endeavors. Using handicraft methods, it stretches out toward the ultimate electronic goal of a collective consciousness.
View quotes by Marshall McLuhan

Police in Washington D.C. are now using cameras to catch drivers who go through red lights. Many congressmen this week opposed the use of the red light cameras incorrectly assuming they were being used for surveillance at local brothels.

View quotes by Traci Bingham

Somerset's rent-a-quote, Peter Anderson, enjoyed another opportunity to stick the boot in, accusing the would-be reformers of knowing nothing about the game. It is undeniable, of course, that an ex-copper from Hong Kong should know more about cricket than the combined experience of two England captains.
View quotes by Mike Atherton

It was sooo great. I'd go out at night with those fake boobs and people treated me differently. At first I thought it was weird, but then I got into it. Man, it's amazing what breasts do! [on using false breasts]
