"Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a main era - -the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant. There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda. You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - -that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - -on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - -the place where the wave finally broke and rolled back."
-Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
â€œCry â€˜Havocâ€™ and let slip the dogs of war!â€? - Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene I
My favorite quote has to be:
"The name of their god of war flooded out across the battlefield, energising each of the eldar warriors who heard it, rallying them into a renewed quest: blood for the blood god."
Which was in reference to Kaela Mensha Khaine, NOT Khorne (who you'd normally associate "blood for the blood god!" with.
"The terror which did not end for another 27 years if ever it did end began as far as i can tell with a boy and a paper boat" - Stephen kings IT the first pages made my skin crawl. The quote may not be exact as its been awhile since i read it but its very close
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer

Argh...far to many to post here. I'll just lay doena few from Catch 22 by Joseph Heller 'cause they're the funniest I can think of.Lt. Milo Minderbinder: I wanna serve this to the men. Taste it and let me know what you think.
Capt. Yossarian: What is it?
Lt. Milo Minderbinder: Chocolate covered cotton.
Capt. Yossarian: What are you crazy?!
Lt. Milo Minderbinder: No good, huh?
Capt. Yossarian: For Christ's sake, you didn't even get the seeds out!
Lt. Milo Minderbinder: Is it really that bad?
Capt. Yossarian: It's cotton!The case against Clevinger was open and shut. The only thing missing was something to charge him with."They couldn't dominate Death inside the hospital, but they certainly made her behave. They had taught her manners. They couldn't keep death out, but while she was in she had to act like a lady. People gave up the ghost with delicacy and taste inside the hospital. There was none of that crude, ugly ostentation about dying that was so common outside the hospitalDear Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Mr. And Mrs. Daneeka: Words cannot express the deep personal grief I experienced when your husband, son, father, or brother was killed, wounded, or reported missing in action
MY favourite has to be these ones from the "Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy:
"Many scientists consider the bable fish the final proof that God does not exist. God exists in faith alone, and thus cannot create anything which proves he exists. But the babel fish is such and extrodianry creatre that it must have been created by God. But scince it is proof that God exists, but God exists through faith alone God does not exist claim the scientists. Oh dear! says God and vanishes in a puff of logic."
"In the beggining the Universe was created. This has upset many people and is widley considered to be a very bad move."
Awesome stuff, make of it what you will.
That's fantastic Bawdy, have never read the book, but if it's half as good as the movie (books are usually so much better) it would be a great read. My second favourite movie of all time.Originally Posted by Bawdymonkey
My favourite quote... coming soon!
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.
