More Words To Ponder

April 22, 2008

This is our second installment of Words To Ponder. The first installment is here.

“Our childhood is what we spend the rest of our lives overcoming.”
—Amy Bennett

“A cousin of mine who was a casualty surgeon in Manhattan tells me that he and his colleagues had a one-word nickname for bikers: Donors. Rather chilling.”
—Stephen Fry

“No matter how happily a woman may be married, it always pleases her to discover that there is a nice man who wishes she were not.”
—H.L. Mencken

“I guess a drag queen’s like an oil painting: You gotta stand back from it to get the full effect.”
—Harvey Fierstein

“You’re not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.”
—Dean Martin

“Stand firm in your refusal to remain conscious during algebra. In real life, I assure you, there is no such thing as algebra.”
—Fran Lebowitz

“Like all parents, my husband and I just do the best we can, and hold our breath, and hope we’ve set aside enough money to pay for our kids’ therapy.”
—Michelle Pfeiffer

“I occasionally get birthday cards from fans. But it’s often the same message: They hope it’s my last.”
—Al Forman (former MLB umpire)

“A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments, soccer games, romances, best friends, location of friend’s houses, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.”

“The truth is that parents are not really interested in justice. They just want quiet.”

    Siggy, after reading your account on that lovely date you had so long ago, you should come up with some words to ponder of your own. I am sure it would be quite insightful! :-) I am still laughing and giggling! :-)

    Some comics thrive by telling the truth. They teach us about our faults. Some thrive by telling about our fantasies. They teach us about our foibles. And some present the fantasies as truth. They pose the danger that some people will believe them. “No such thing as algebra”? I prefer the remark (Heinlein?) that people who haven’t mastered it are at best marginal sentients who can bathe and feed themselves and avoid leaving messes on the carpet.
