Hard to pick just one, but I do like:"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic." - Gregory House
Sounds almost wilde ish
This is not original to House, a TV series that started in 2004. It's a ripoff of a question posed by actress Lily Tomlin several years before that, specifically: "Why is it that when we talk to God It is said we are praying but when God talks to us it is said we are schizophrenic?"

I totally agree with the turn on the light part ~

Wonderful....you are getting my film quote memories going here.. ALL ABOUT EVE alone could fill the page
Did I mention that Joe Mankiewicz who wrote and directed the screenplay for All About Eve was born right here in NEPA (Northeast Pennsylvania) in Wilkes-Barre? There's a reference in a dialogue between BD (Margo) and her real life husband playing the director (Gary Merrill) where she refers to opening in Wilkes-Barre. Mankiewicz was also director for what I've always thought was a pretty good movie - Cleopatra. a little pricey, but quite a spectacle. So, John, fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night. Funny business, a woman's career - the things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you'll need them again when you get back to being a woman. I’ll admit I may have seen better days…but I’m still not to be had for the price of a cocktail, like a salted peanut.
Thank you for that..as youknow I adore " EVE" I so wanted my life to be a little like that screenplay........i turned into celeste Holm
What doesn't kill me makes me stronger. - Albert Camus
Camus, whilst turning in his grave, may agree with the sentiment yet will, rightly, attribute it to Friedrich Nietzsche "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger."U
It is a good quote whoever said it
It's a line of de Musset's that Karen Blixen loved: "Il faut, dans ce bas monde, aimer beaucoup de choses Pour savoir, après tout, ce qu'on aime le mieux..."Which is, more or less: "We must, in this low world, love many things, so that we can know, in the end, what we have loved the most."
Im getting quotes in French now! how absolutely spiffing
The first one that came to mind today:"Two tears in a bucket...motherf*ck it" - the Lady Chablis(From Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)

Jesus loves you, but I think you're a c&nt.Chin up tits out!

Recently adopted:"What fresh hell is this?" - John Gray of Going Gently fame.Not only do I relish the phrase for how it rolls off the tongue, I think it every morning when - with trepidation - I check the news online. U
Id love to remember where i stole this from? Probably a movie
According to Wikiquote, the humorist Dorothy Parker would say "What fresh hell can this be?" whenever she answered her doorbell. "What fresh hell is this?"
I am not really sure... but I did think of you this morning, as a client left a Walking Dead quilt here to have the quilting done. John would love this, I thought. Barb

I've always liked - Life's a bitch and then you die! My long passed and much loved Nan always used say - The path of true love never runs smoothly and nor does any other sort of love. She also used say - My head will never save my legs, bless her.
I used to say this one a lot

I once had 'rudeness is a weak mans attempt to appear strong' in a frame on my desk at work. I went into work one morning and my colleague asked me what it was that the boss had taken from my desk..... The boss confiscated it as he thought it was directed at him.... he felt such a twit when I explained that it was to remind me why the bus driver on my way to work was an ignorant and obnoxious pig.
Rudeness is a weak mans weapon Was one of my mothers!
