Quotes for the week of September 6-12

"Can you say 'Values Clarification,' Class?"
      --Steve Taylor, "Lifeboat"

"The claw is our master. The claw chooses who will go and who will stay. Shhhh! It moves."
      --Toy Story

"Dead? No excuse for laying off work."
      --Time Bandits

"Don't f*** with the will of the people, young Harrison."

"Early on, [he] learned the favorite trick of all demagogues, peddle hatred to a downtrodden people. It is an easy sell."
      --Dick Young, in a sports column in the New York Daily News

"The ears open, eyes wide,
Feet steady, tongue tied."
      --Change-ringers' saying

"Everyone knows that dragons don't exist. But while this simplistic formulation may satisfy the layman, it does not suffice for the scientific mind. The School of Higher Neantical Nillity is in fact wholly unconcerned with what does exist. Indeed, the banality of existence has been so amply demonstrated, there is no need for us to discuss it any further here. The brilliant Cerebron, attacking the problem analytically, discovered three distinct kinds of dragon: the mythical, the chimerical, and the purely hypothetical. They were all, one might say, nonexistent, but each nonexisted in an entirely different way..."
      -- Stanislaw Lem, Cyberiad
