wonder this man was a diplomat.
You couldn't trust him an inch, he thought in loops, and you couldn't help liking him despite it.

He said that there was death and taxes and taxes was worse, because at least death didn't happen to you every year.

To consist of their promising to do anything we ask provided we promise not to ask them to do anything.

Looking for any sign of intelligence in intelligence reports.

The origins were lost in the depths of time, which was as good a reason as any for retaining the custom.
They were grown men or at least lived for several decades, which in some societies is considered the same thing.

It was such a high-class establishment that it sold not sweets, but confectionary - often in the form of individual gold wrapped swirly things that made even larger holes in a bank balance that they did in a tooth.

In some parts of the city curiosity didn't just kill the cat, it threw it in the river with lead weights tied to it's feet.

Its skin is rare and highly valued, especially by the vermin itself; the selfish little bastard will do anything rather than let go of it.

This thief was an artist of theft. Other thieves merely stole everything that was not nailed down but this thief stole the nails as well.

He didn't administer a reign of terror, just the occasional light shower.
David Eddings
His "Belgarion" and "Mallorean" series are one of the jewels in Fantasy fiction (well, I think so).
The only reason there is such a thing as morning in the first place is to keep night and afternoon from bumping into each other.

People always travel faster when somebody's chasing them.

She's very careful with children and other breakable things.

I've regretted many things in my life, I doubt that one more will make all that much difference.

I'm always in trouble. I wouldn't know how to act if I weren't.

Somehow it restores my faith in the order of the Universe.

Just a short ones...
How do we know that fairy tales are fiction?
Because the prince is always smart, handsome, single, and straight.

The question of a little girl to her dad: "If you are a male and I'm a female, for goodness sake, what's an e-mail?"

- Do you speak Spanish?
- No, but I listen fluently.

There is nothing wrong with my wife that a miracle won't cure.
(Offended females can change 'wife' for 'husband'. It works pretty well both ways. I have checked!)

I'm lost, I've gone to look for myself, if I should return before I get back, have me wait.

Do you know the punishment for bigamy? Two mothers-in-law.

Do you believe in love at first sight or do I need to walk by again?


Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; and then it was too late."

How do most men define marriage? An expensive way to get laundry done for free.

A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?"
And the father replied, "I don't know son, I'm still paying."

Statistically 100% of all divorces started with marriage.
Shrink answering machine

The telephone rings and an answering machine answers...

"Welcome to the psychiatric hotline."
If you are obsessive compulsive, please press one repeatedly.
If you are co-dependant, please ask someone to press 2.
If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.
If you are paranoid/delusional, we know who you are, what you want, just stay on the line so that we can trace your call.
If you are a schizophrenic, listen carefully, and a little voice will tell you which number to press.
If you are manic depressive, it doesn't matter which number you one will answer anyways.

Only in Might and Magic VI...

Only in Free Haven...can a pizza get to your house faster than a doctor.

Only in Free alchemists make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy spells of poison at the front.

Only in Bootleg Bay... the barman gives you double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet beer.

Only in Silver banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in New we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in Castle we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.

Only in White Cap...we can do skiing the whole year and we still want snowing to stop.


You are becoming old if you are...

...when your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

...when your doctor doesn't give you x-rays anymore but just holds you up to the light.

...when you remember when the Dead Sea was only sick.

...when your wife says, "let's go upstairs and make love", and you answer, "honey, I can't do both!"
