Robin AH Waterfield Quotes

"If I am in love, many things about the world, not just the immediate object of my love, seem lovable. To say I love X is somehow really to say X inspires love in me, and that love then attaches itself to objects other than X as well. The expansiveness of love is a natural means of ascent between levels."

Penn Jillette Quotes

"Every time something really bad happens, people cry out for safety, and the government answers by taking rights away from good people. We have no proof that the bad, stupid crazy people who have planted bombs in the past few years used the phone much for their stupid bad crimes, let alone logged on the Internet. Yet when those kind of bad things happen nowadays, the government tries to do bad things to phones and the Net. The phones and the Internet are just good smart things, and the government should leave them alone. You have to watch the government all the time on everything. Thomas Jefferson didnt say that, but he said something very close to that."

Quotes About Catching Fireflies

"As we drove off into the moonless night, raindrops danced through our headlights like the fireflies of my childhood. I silently cursed the frailty of happiness and doubted whether it ever existed for me. I could remember happier times, though, and those memories fluttered about my mind like fireflies, beckoning with their elusive splendor. But chasing memories held no more promise than catching fireflies. The pursued feelings either vanished or lost their magic upon examination, hardly the green-glowing beauty seen at a distance. So I looked ahead of me and dreamed on into the darkness, hoping to one day find someone who would love me." - Author: Scott Gaille

Quotes About Liquor And Life

"Kenneth was a sitting duck.
