Ah, lighten up...

Heres a couple more...

If one could teach the English to talk, and the Irish how to listen, society here would be quite civilised.

Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever.

America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.

The English country gentleman galloping after a fox is the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable.

Sound English common sense, the inherited stupidity of the race.

The English really have everything in common with the Americans nowadays, except of course the language.

Happy new year x

"I also live in a dangerous world, Mike. I find myself in a situation similar to what you describe, but my reaction to it is quite different. I see two distinct options. I can regard other people as objects of suspicion and fear, potential enemies I must be prepared to kill if necessary. I can keep a gun to "protect" my home, not look people in the eye, be full of mistrust and fear. Alternatively, I can accept the risk involved living in this world, and refuse to make it worse. I will not make it worse by perpetuating the violence I abhor. I will not make it worse by regarding and treating other human beings as my enemies. I will move through this dangerous world happy and free of fear of "them," whomever they may be. "

"Rose: Don't be worried, Mr. Allnut.
Charlie: Oh, I ain't worried, Miss. Gave myself up for dead back where we started."

Rose = Katharine Hepburn

Charlie = Humphrey Bogart

I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use? Toothpicks?
