Since most of you reading and following my blog already know who I am, this “about” page sure seems silly. So, instead of rambling on about how handsome I am and how witty and funny you all think I am, I will spare you. Instead, I will put down some of my favorite quotes from movies, literature, music, fortune cookies etc. Enjoy!
“But why is all the rum gone?” – Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean)
“My dreams are sails that I point towards my true north,
stretched thin over my rib bones, and pray that it gets better
but it won’t, at least I don’t believe it will.
So I’ve built a wooden heart inside this iron ship,
to sail these blood red seas and find your coasts.
Don’t let these waves wash away your hopes
this war-ship is sinking, and I still believe in anchors” – Listener “Wooden Heart”
“So was I once myself a swinger of birches.
And so I dream of going back to be.
It’s when I’m weary of considerations,
And life is too much like a pathless wood
Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs
Broken across it, and one eye is weeping
From a twig’s having lashed across it open.
I’d like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate willfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth’s the right place for love:
I don’t know where it’s likely to go better.
I’d like to go by climbing a birch tree,
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.
That would be good both going and coming back.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.” – Robert Frost “Birches”
“I knew a man who once said, ‘Death smiles at us all. All a man can do, is smile back.'” – Maximus (Gladiator)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understandings; but in all ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary…” – Edgar Allan Poe “The Raven”
“If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden, and Toby, I would shoot Toby twice.” – Michael Scott (The Office)
“You! Are! A! Toy! You aren’t the real Buzz Lightyear! You’re – you’re an action figure! You’re a child’s play thing!” “You are a sad, strange little man, you have my pity.” – Woody and Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story)
