"Remember the future." -Allen Ginsburg

"Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything." - George Bernard Shaw

"We are meant to be here. We step from one piece of holy ground to the next under stars that ask ... imagine, for one second, you could drop in on a past life. What would you like to find yourself doing there? What would charm you, make you proud? Ask yourself that, and the question of what to do in this life becomes so simple, it's terrifying. Just to do that thing that would charm you, that would make you say yes, this is the real me. Do that, and you're alive." - Alex Venteaux

"The severity of the itch is proportional to the reach." -Steven Wright

Here is what Chris Rock said after famous animal trainer, Roy Horn, was mauled by Manticore, one of his white tigers, back in ’03:

That tiger ain’t go crazy; that tiger went tiger! You know when he was really crazy? When he was riding around on a unicycle with a Hitler helmet on!

There is a correct answer. Do NOT get it wrong.
manhattan is nasty, don't know how people can eat that stuff. new england made right or close to right is amazing. even poorly done, it's usually decent. the hotel i work at likes to make turkey chowder (mainly after thanksgiving) and seafood chowder from time to time using the the new england clam chowder formula but with turkey or seafood instead of the clams.

"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating...


...and you finish off as an orgasm."

I would probably write pages of quotes if I were using Hitchhiker's Guide... that book is full of random but fantastic quotes.
