I have been tagged by Mikayla Starstuff to give my 5 favourite quotations. Here's her list.
"Never again will a single story be told as though it's the only one" - John Berger
"Had she thought there was no meaning in life, no purpose, when God had gone?...'Well there is now,' she said aloud, and again, louder: 'There is now...We have to be all those difficult things, like cheerful and kind and curious and patient, and we've got to study and think and work hard, all of us...and then we'll build...the Republic of Heaven." Lyra, In 'The Amber Spyglass', Philip Pullman
"I'm not trying to counsel any of you to do anything really special
except to dare to think, and to dare to go with the truth, and to dare
to really love completely." - R. Buckminster Fuller
"Truth is my authority, not some authority my truth." - Mary Dyer
"If it turns out that there is a God, I don't think that he's evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever." - Woody Allen
(I was hard pressed to find a Woody Allen quotation - because I love his stuff! Partner dude and I are getting really into him - totally hilarious! Just what I need after a heavy work day.)
Now, I have to tag some people...so I'll tag Claire, Peterson, Ash, Tim and Rachie.
PS. Oh sod it, here's my 5 favourite Woody Allen quotes (6 if you include the one above):
"Basically my wife was immature. I'd be at home in the bath and she'd come in and sink my boats."
"I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me."
"I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick. Not wounded. Dead."
"If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative."
"Is sex dirty? Only if it's done right."
