"Next time you're afraid to share ideas remember that someone once said 'Let's make a movie with a tornado full of sharks.'"

A Freudian Slip...

...or something no woman has EVER said?

"Freud thought the control of fire led to self-control. Around a hearth, he said, we have to suppress a primal urge to quench the flames with a stream of urine."

Catching Fire by Richard Wrangham

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)."

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

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 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?
