as dead as it can be.
First it killed the Romans,
and now its killing me!

"No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome"

" 'for every problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.' That quote explains a lot, but mostly the inability of millions of people to appreciate irony."

"If you're weak, they attack you," says the scientist. "If you're not weak, they won't attack you. We have to be a strong country and end these humiliating threats. And being strong means not listening to the foreigners."

When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute - and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.

If one remembers what he/she did last night - this shows a failure in doing; if he/she remembers with whom, this shows bad manners.

Too much attention is paid to the flattering postfactum that "sex is nothing without emotional involvement", while the hard fact that emotional involvement starts with/because of sex in some form and shape is commonly disregarded.

Keeping on struggling after the battle is lost increases the injuries, but makes a point; that's good enough for me.
