Call of the Wild

"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club."

--Jack London

Sunday Lessons from Lula

"Of course I go to church. I gotta compensate for all the things I do that would otherwise send me straight to (pitchfork city)."

Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovitch


Cool Quote

"I believe in the aboriginal line of thinking that life's adventures are the verses and choruses of your unique song, and when it is over, you are dead. So far, I am still singing, but I would point out that adventures don't come calling like unexpected cousins visiting from out of town. You have to go looking for them, and that is exactly how I wound up on Cayo Loco."

A Salty Piece of Land by Jimmy Buffett

Best Slogan Ever

Be yourself--unless you can be Batman.

from the Legos Batman movie trailer

On Taking Chances

“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm is terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.”

—Vincent Van Gough

Doing the Time

From a tour of Alcatraz:

"These five words seem written in fire on the walls of my cell: Nothing can be worth this!"
--George "Machine Gun" Kelly


Mickey's Back

"Velda isn't the kind of woman you'd miss even in Penn Station. All you had to do was follow the eyes. She was standing by the information booth tall and cool-looking, in a light gray suit that made the black of her hair seem even deeper. Luscious. Clothes couldn't hide it. Seductive. They didn't try to hide it either. Nobody ever saw her without undressing her with their eyes, that's the kind of woman she was."

Mickey Spillane, The Big Kill

More Q&A

More from Marilyn.

Q. Why is it that our high school experiences occupy such a prominent place in our memories?
A. During high school, we develop the most vigorous adult bodies we will ever have. At the same time, we possess the least amount of sense we will ever have. The combination produces many memorable moments!

Q. You stated that everyone who compliments you makes you feel good, and everyone who criticizes you makes you do better next time. But how can you tell the difference between a critic and an enemy?


“I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.”
 -Woodrow Wilson

But what's your return policy?


Stephen King

When his life was ruined, his family killed, his farm destroyed, Job knelt down on the ground and yelled up to the heavens, 'Why god? Why me?' and the thundering voice of God answered, 'There's just something about you that pisses me off.'

Stephen King

I knew it! That explains SO MUCH!
