To me, "scruples" are Russian money, and "morals" are paintings on walls.

"And that's Jack. He thinks he's a god but he's so brain fried all the time he probably forgot his girlfriend's name. Or that she's really a guy."

We scottish have our own kung-fu. It's called, "F***K YOU!" and consists of mostly headbanging and kicking your foe when they pass out.

Foolish are the people who play Twister on the stairs.

depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

Never pick a fight with an ugly person, they've got nothing to lose.

"Substance is your strength. The true nature and depth of your search ignite the ink from black to blaze. The deep tread of a diver leaves the footprint of a man."

You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe. Its only after the "believers" have their faith shaken sufficiently that progress can start again...

Life is never fair, and perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not.

Mmm, you should ask them to implant one of those singing birthday/Christmas-card microchips into your tit, so that the next time somebody mooshes it around, they'll be surprised with a muffled, bleeping version of "Frosty the Snowman".

'The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread' -Anatole France

A critic is a man who knows the way but can't drive the car.

From all other ills do mine differ. It pleaseth me; my ill is what I want and my suffering my health. My ill comes to me by my will; but I am so pleased to want thus that I suffer agreeably, and have so much joy in my pain that I am sick with delight.

"a watched pot never boils. a watched pot with a flame under it does."

It's kind of hard to go for an insanity plea when your client reloads.

"Gump was wrong!! Life isnt like a box of chocolates its more like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow."


It all seems a terrible fuss over one person, and I agree with my friends who say Ms Mukhtaran's tribulations are not representative of all of Pakistan.
But her case has become a symbol, and symbols count. And it doesn't matter whether that involves good news or bad. It must be written.

Long after, and the night was again, shall I say, rather educational, he laughed at me eating apples in the bathtub. I was starving, of course, but I would have done it for the fact that it made him laugh.

We're running different races you and I, you can't win because I'm not competing against you.

There is no such thing as a tough child. If you boil them for 7 hours, they always come out tender.

The gene pool needs more chlorine.

found religion inside myself
i drank the blood, the flesh was stale

I have no doubt at all the devil grins,
as seas of ink I splatter.
Ye gods, forgive me for my literary sins-
The other kind don't matter.

I'm what your mother would have been if she'd never had kids

yesterday I...
shaved my legs with a blunt razor, and perhaps I would have let some blood fall from my veins if it wasn't so trendy and shallow now.
left wet towels on the floor.
dressed in baggy black clothes... to drown my figure,
to be a shapeless girl. if I can't be thin I will be shapeless.
being shapeless is better than being fat anyway.
passed through the car park
it doesn't collect warmth anymore,
thats why I don't stay there.
there is no sunshine to soak up.
held hands with someone:
who's love I do not deserve this easily.
because I'm cold and distant...
tightly closed
like the criss-crossed laces in those boots that I wear.
smiled: artificially, yet convincingly.
inhaled invisible pollution.
endured annoying noises
and annoying people
(who told me to SHUT THE FUCK UP
because I proved them to be a HYPOCRITE)

[fuck them]

(which I unfortunately did, once)
scrambled to catch up
watched online video clips
said goodbye in a predictable manner
tried not to die.
