Can't beat Groucho for quotes:


Behind every successful man is a woman - behind her is his wife.

I've had a wonderful night - but this wasn't it.

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

Quote me as saying I was misquoted.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
-Teddy Roosevelt. "The man in the arena"

Forgive the Bible references.

If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

and

Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.

Beyond that, TS Eliot's incomparable line from Ash Wednesday,

Teach us to care, and not to care.

Those who hate you don't win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.

Mickey Mantle. A team is where a boy can prove his courage on his own. A gang is where a coward goes to hide.

“Hey Lord… Whatever I done… Don’t strike me blind for another couple ah minutes.” – George Kennedy as ‘Dragline’ watching a pretty girl wash a car in ‘Cool-Hand Luke’.


“…and I’m gonna be that way ‘til I’m a DEAD old man.” – Red Foxx as Fred Stanford in ‘Sanford and Son’ responding to his son Lamont calling him a dirty old man.


If you don't mind smelling like peanut butter for two or three days, peanut butter is darn good shaving cream.
Barry Goldwater


"All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian." – Pat Paulsen


“All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”, Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty in Blade Runner.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
