I quite agree with you, said the Duchess; and the moral of that is -- 'Be
what you would seem to be' -- or, if you'd like it put more simply -- 'Never
imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others
that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had
been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.'

I read a column by George Will that Scarface should be rated X because
parents were taking their children to see it. So what? Why should the
motion-picture industry be responsible for our morality?
Dad says to Mom, "Honey, Scarface is in town."
"What's it about?"
"Human scum who kill each other over cocaine deals."
"Sounds great! Let's take the kids!"

To see the sights I'm never going to visit.

I realize that today you have a number of top female athletes such as
Martina Navratilova who can run like deer and bench-press Chevrolet
trucks. But to be brutally frank, women as a group have a long way to
go before they reach the level of intensity and dedication to sports
that enables men to be such incredible jerks about it.

I really hate this damned machine
I wish that they would sell it.
It never does quite what I want
But only what I tell it.

I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens
who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known
something of what has been passing in their time.

I recently moved into a new apartment, and there was this switch on the
wall that didn't do anything... so anytime I had nothing to do, I'd just
flick that switch up and down... up and down... up and down...
Then one day I got a letter from a woman in Germany... it just said
"Cut it out."

I recognize terror as the finest emotion and so I will try to terrorize the
reader. But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if
I find that I cannot horrify, I'll go for the gross-out.
