"I interviewed a young anthropologist working with women in Mali, a country in Africa where women go around with bare breasts. They're always feeding their babies. And when she told them that in our culture men are fascinated with breasts there was an instant of shock. The women burst out laughing. They laughed so hard, they fell on the floor.

They said, "You mean, men act like babies?""

— Carolyn Latteier, Breasts, the women’s perspective on an American obsession

From James Sallis' collection of essays, in particular on essay on the literary life:

One of the toughest things about being a serious writer – I mean, I can handle poverty, not being read, and checks endlessly “in the mail” – is the reputation you get, the rumors that start up for no good reason.

For instance, it is generally believed among friends, other writers and editors, that I am sorrowful and despairing. This is untrue. I distinctly remember being happy for almost five minutes in the winter of 1976, and though I cannot now recall the exact source of that happiness, I remember the emotion well, as I first took it for the onset of flu.

Here are some favorite bumper sticker quotes (I have a list of over a hundred favorites I have collected of the years):

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

I let my mind wonder and it didn't come back.

I got lost in thought; it was unfamiliar territory.


"If a people could ever succeed by itself in destroying or even diminishing the equallity that reigned within, it would arrive at that only by long and painful efforts. It would have to modify its social state, abolish its laws, renew its ideas, change its habits, alter its mores. But to lose political freedom, its enough not to hold on to it, and it escapes."

"One sees peoples whose first education has been so vicious, and whose character presents such a strange mixture of passions, ignorance, and erroneous notions of all things, that by themslves they cannot discern the cause of their miseries; they succumb under evils of which they are ignorant."

"A people who have lived with freedom under law for two centuries are in peril of forgetting how rare and precious that condition is."

"My countrymen, one and all, think calmly and well upon this whole subject. Nothing valuable can be lost by taking time."

"Many free countries have lost their liberty, and ours may lose hers; but if she shall, be it my proudest plume, not that I was the last to desert, but that I never deserted her."

"The man who stands by and say nothing when the peril of his government is discussed, cannot be misunderstood. If not hindered, he is sure to help the enemy; much more if he talks ambiguously -- talks for his country with 'ifs' and 'and's' and 'buts'."

"Important principles may and must be inflexible."

"But history wil record that in a period when the forces of tyranny were mobilizing for the extermination of liberty and democracy everywhere, when a mistaken policy of 'appeasement' was stocking the arsenals of despotism, and when in many high social, and some political, circles, fascism was a fad and democracy an anthem, he stood foursquare for out democratic way of life, fought the good fight and kept the faith, and when death touched him his flag was flying still."

"No man would refuse to give brass for silver or gold, because the latter had some alloy in it. No man would refuse to quit a shattered and tottering habitation for a firm and commodious building because the latter had not a porch to it, or because some of the rooms might be a little larger or smaller, or the ceiling a little higher or lower than his fancy would have planned them."

"The colossal misreprsentation of facts -- 'terminological inexactitudes', if you like the expression (there are shorter variants, but we have to be very careful now at this election, which we are told must be kept thoroughly genteel) -- well, the first of these misrepresentations of fact was a statement that the Conservative Party meant to create unemployment in oder that the need for finding a job should add a greater spur to labour. there is no truth in this. It is a monsterous suggesstion. there was reference to this last night on the wireless by a government spokesman.
The Socialist boast they cured unemployment has been exploded out of their mouths by statements of Mr. Morrison and Sir Stafford Cripps. All of them have said there would be anything up to 2,000,000 unemployed if it had not been for the American Loan. Fancy the Socialist Government in England keeping itself alive, economically and politically, by these large annual drollops of dollars from capitalist America!
They seek the dollars; they beg the dollars; they bluster for the dollars; they gobble the dollars. But in the whole of their 8,000-word manifesto they cannot say 'Thank you' for the dollars."

But words mean things and you have to make distinctions. One man may push old ladies around in wheelchairs, and another push old ladies down stiars. It simply will not do to describe both as men who push old ladies around.

(I'm having to paraphrase this last one as I cannot locate th exact quote)

"Never give in. Never give in. Never! Never! Never! In nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense."


Harry Callahan: "Well, opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one."

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: "Respect is something earned, not bestowed."
("Star Trek: The Next Generation")

Number 6: "Questions are a burden to others; answers a prison for oneself"
Number 6: "Unlike me, many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment and will die here like rotten cabbages."
Number 6: "Everyone votes for a dictator."
("The Prisoner")

Kelso: "Say Perry, who has two thumbs and doesn't give a crap? Me: Bob Kelso."

Homer Simpson: "You cancelled The Platapus Man! And The Cosby Mysteries! That show had endless possibilities!!!"

Batman: "I'm afraid I got it bad... Robin baby."
(1966 series)

Butters: "And so then Skeletor told Terminator he wanted a divorce, and apparently it's all going to be finilized soon!"
Stan: "Dude, Butters, how many times do we have to go over this? That's not Skeletor, that's a woman named Maria Shriver."
Butters: "But then why does his face look like that?"

Token: "I'm trying to make compelling television, Kyle."
Kyle: "You got Randy Newman to do the theme song; you're not trying that hard!"

Doc: "Were you born in a barn?" (to Festus)


Venkman: "Yes, it's true: this man has no dick."
