quote/unquote ...

“Dying is a matter of slapstick and pratfalls. No one should grow old who isn’t ready to appear ridiculous.”
--- John Mortimor, 1923-2009, English author and screenwriter

"No, because your hand-eye coordination was not good enough. You're kind of a big goof. You had one thing. If you uppercut a ball, you might hit it. If his hand-eye coordination was so good, why did he feel the need to apologize to the (Roger) Maris family? It's shame that he thinks we're all stupid, that he only did (steroids) because of injuries. That's such a cop-out, such a lie. These guys did (steroids) to take the money to pump up their egos and then take their consequences down the road.”
--- Former Cardinal/Giant Jack Clark on Mark McGwire’s statements that he would have hit 70 home runs without steroids

“This is the most interdependent age in human history. It goes way beyond trade. The rich world was as trade-dependent before World War I as it was in the 1990s, but we didn’t have the internet, we didn’t have so much travel, and we didn’t have so much immigration and so much diversity, so much shared scientific research. We’re linked in so many different ways that we can’t get a divorce.”
---- Bill Clinton, Newsweek, Dec. 28, 2009

“We may eventually come to realize that chastity is no more a virtue than malnutrition.”
--- Alex Comfort (1920-2000) British psychiatrist & author of “The Joy of Sex”
