1: Who wouldn't like to atone for the sins of themselves, and the world, if it could be done in a hammock with ropes?
2: A bitch is no match for a lady except in a brass bed, honey, and sometimes not even there.
3: I respect a person that has had to fight and howl for his decency.
4: What did you think we were doing out there? Spawning?
5: And what do you respect in me, miss thin, standing-up, female Buddha? | I can't stand for a person I respect to behave like a small, cruel boy.
7: Miss Fellowes is a highly moral person. If she ever recognized the truth about herself it would destroy her.
9: Hysteria is a natural phenomenon, the common denominator of the female nature. It's the big female weapon, and the test of a man is his ability to cope with it.
10: The Fantastic Level and the Realistic Level are the two levels upon which we live.
11: The decline of the Western world began with the invention of the wheel.
12: There are worse things than chastity, Mr. Shannon. Yes: lunacy and death ... A man can die of panic ...!!! Not when he enjoys it as much as you do, Mr. Shannon.
13: Youth must be wanton, youth must be quick, Dance to the candle while lasteth the wick.
14: How calmly does the olive branch Observe the sky begin to blanch Without a cry, without a prayer With no betrayal of despair | Some time while light obscures the tree The zenith of its life will be Gone past forever And from thence A second history will commence | A chronicle no longer gold A bargaining with mist and mold And finally the broken stem The plummeting to earth, and then
15: And intercourse not well designed For beings of a golden kind Whose native green must arch above The earth's obscene corrupting love | And still the ripe fruit and the branch Observe the sky begin to blanch Without a cry, without a prayer With no betrayal of despair | Oh courage! Could you not as well Select a second place to dwell Not only in that golden tree But in the frightened heart of me
17: I just cut loose one of God's creatures at the end of his rope, Maxine. What for? So that one of God's creatures could be free from panic, and scamper home safe and free. A little act of grace, Maxine.
