To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition.
All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time.

Too bad that all the people who really know how to run the country are busy driving taxi cabs and cutting hair.
You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and
melancholy prospects of decay, it would give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.
Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.
A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it.

We've put more effort into helping folks reach old age than into helping them enjoy it.

I find it rather easy to portray a businessman. Being bland, rather cruel and incompetent comes naturally to me.
The problem with beauty is that it's like being born rich and getting poorer.
I think there's a terrific merit in having no sense of humour, no sense of irony, practically no sense of anything at all. If you're born with these
so-called defects you have a very good chance of getting to the top. That's what's enabled
her [Mrs. Thatcher] to turn Britain into a cross between Singapore and Telford.

I was in love with a beautiful blonde once, dear. She drove me to drink. That's the one thing I'm indebted to her for.
W. C. Fields
Never give a sucker an even break.
W. C. Fields
So people think I'm lying about my age all the time? It's the records that are wrong. I've never told anyone how old I am. The
minute they ask me, I say
That's none of your business. So that means I've never once lied about my age. Now that's true!
I've had a hell of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words
of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.
Being in jail is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. During the past several days, I have had a lot of time to think
and I believe that I am learning and growing from this experience ... I would hope going forward that the public and the media
will focus on more important things like the men and women serving our country in Iraq and other places around the world.
I'll see you at the debates, bitches.

If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into
your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.
Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only
light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.
Age is other things too. It is wisdom, if one has lived one's life properly. It is experience and knowledge. And it is getting to know all the
ways the world turns, so that if you cannot turn the world the way you want, you can at least get out of the way so you won't get run over.
I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book.
I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception.
After thirty, a body has a mind of its own.

When I die, my epitaph, or whatever you call those signs on gravestones, is going to read:
I joked about every prominent man
of my time, but I never met a man I dident like. I am so proud of that, I can hardly wait to die so it can be carved.
You can't say civilization don't advance... in every war they kill you in a new way.
I'd rather die with my boots on than live on my fuckin' knees.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.
Don't worry chief, it will be alright.
Women are not in love with me but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women paint their dreams.
All of us should have free choice when it comes to patriotic displays... a government wisely acting within
its bounds will earn loyalty and respect from its citizens. A government dare not demand the same.
As governor, there isn't a lot I can do beyond that to crack down on crime. Law
enforcement is really a local issue. It's the cops' job to tighten down on criminals.
Congratulations, you have a sense of humor. And to those who didn't: Go stick your head in the mud.
Government works less efficiently when it begins to grow out of control and
takes on more and more of the responsibilities that belong to the citizens.
Government's role should be only to keep the playing field level, and to work hand in hand with business on issues
such as employment. But beyond this, to as great an extent as possible, it should get the hell out of the way.
I also believe that government has no business telling us how we should live our lives. I think our lifestyle choices should be left
up to us. What we do in our private lives is none of the government's business. That position rules out the Republican Party for me.
I asked Dalai Lama the most important question that I think you could ask - if he had ever seen Caddyshack.
I believe in the America people's ability to govern themselves. If government would just
get out of the way and allow them to lead their lives as they choose, they will succeed.
I believe patriotism comes from the heart. Patriotism is voluntary. It is a
feeling of loyalty and allegiance that is the result of knowledge and belief.
I decided to run for governor because I got mad... I want to make government more directly accountable to the people.
I don't believe we need the government's help as much as some think we do. That belief sets me
apart from the Democrats, since their way of dealing with everything is to tax and spend.
I don't support abortion. I could never participate in one. But I think it would be a mistake to make them illegal again.
I don't think I would want the responsibility for enforcing the death penalties. There's always the
inevitable question of whether someone you gave the order to execute might truly have been innocent.
I don't want to spend the rest of my life in politics. When I'm finished with my term
as governor, I'm going back to the life that's waiting for me in the private sector.
I speak my mind. If it offends some people, well, there's not much I can do about that.
But I'm going to be honest. I'm going to continue to speak my mind, and that's who I am.
I'm against the draft. I believe we should have a professional military; it might be smaller, but it would be more effective.
If I could be reincarnated as a fabric, I would come back as a 38 double-D bra.
If I wanna be president, I probably can.
If you were to come to Minnesota, I could have you locked up like that. That's power.
Industrial hemp is a very useful plant. I challenged the attorney general to get rid of the
criminal stigma associated with hemp so we can look at it in terms of how it might be useful.
Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in
numbers. It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people's business.
Patriotism is voluntary. It is a feeling of loyalty and allegiance that is the result of knowledge
and belief. A patriot shows their their patriotism through their actions, by their choice.
Politics is not my life. I have a career in radio and another career in film.
Remember that government doesn't earn one single dollar it spends. In order for you
to get money from the government, that money must first be taken from somebody else.
Students often approached me about state-paid tuition while I was out campaigning. After I explained to them that if the state pays their
tuition now, they will pay higher taxes to pay other people's tuition for the rest of their lives, most of them ended up agreeing with me.
The Constitution guarantees us our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That's all. It doesn't guarantee our rights to charity.
There are a lot of good causes out there, but they can't possibly all be served by government.
There is much more to being a patriot and a citizen than reciting the pledge or raising a flag.
There's no question that we need tougher drunk-driving laws for repeat offenders. We need
to take a lesson from European countries where driving isn't a right but a privilege.
We call our country home of the brave and land of the free, but it's not. We give a false
portrayal of freedom. We're not free - if we were, we'd allow people their freedom.
When the Constitution gave us the right to bear arms, it also made us responsible for using them properly.
It's not fair of us as citizens to lean more heavily on one side of that equation than on the other.
Wrestling is ballet with violence.
You can't legislate morality.
You give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I'll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders.
