This is a continuation of the Babble Quote Hall of Fame.

Just thought we could use a new thread.

Thanks, guys .

A propos of... something or other, I really dig how the New York Times has taken to referring to him as "Henry A. Kissinger." Reminds me of how those accused of crimes end up getting known by their full names -- in life, if we can believe Don DeLillo, Lee Harvey Oswald was just plain Lee Oswald.

"Heres my allegation. that the only reason that protesters want to end WHINSEC is that they want Central and South American police to have less training to make it easier for revolutionaries to overthrow governments."

That's a good one! In the Chilean example, though, it was the torturers who overthrew the government.

I know it is hard for some to conceive that torture might be objectionable, per se, and not in furtherance of a political objective. In that, you agree with Stalin.

I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our island home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necesary for years, if necessary alone. At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of His Majesty's Government -- every man of them. That is the will of Parliament and the nation. The British Empire and the French Republic, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength. Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, weshall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until in God's good time, the new world, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

Hey _Balla_, that was a great quote...

However, this thread is only for quotes made by people on babble. Since this is the second thread and the introductory message is on the first thread, it's an understandable mistake!

We started this thread for quotes by people not on babble, and famous quotes, etc.

Happy quoting!

Ha! I just came here to quote that exact passage, skdadl!

Except I'm going to put in the first two paragraphs that he uses to introduce that third paragraph, because I think his post in its entirety deserves to be here. Just insert these two paragraphs above the one skdadl posted:

quote:
All right, I've decided that you're all old enough to hear the Truth. I don't want to hear any guff about it, we're in the same boat, there's no use rocking it, and besides, it's for your own Good. So quit running around with those scissors and poking your eyes out with sticks and stop fidgetting and pay attention. All right. Here it is:

The standards of conduct and safety society enforces become ever more byzantine as real responsibility diminishes. Why? Because as our power to influence society decreases, we turn to the relatively petty things we can control. By-laws, etiquette, and so on.


Oh, and here's the thread since skdadl didn't link to it.

WingNut remembers the good old days:

quote:
Why ye snivelling little, pinko, commie, queerboy. Back when I was a lad -- when you were just a filthy thought in your father's one track mind -- we had no cars. We wanted milk we had to go back to the barn and ask the cow for it. And if the cow said no we had to either walk through swarms of black flies thicker than early mornin' fog or snow shoe through blizzards that would rip yer fragile, store bought skin off to the nearest town only there was no nearest town. Only a general store twenty-five miles away between the back forty and hell's half acre. And when you got there, half the time they had no milk because their cow was feelin' a bit ornery too. And who could blame it. Cold fingers pullin' on your teat just as yer tryin' to get a bit a shut eye or maybe watch yer programs. And kids nowadays think every single luxury is a right. Oh, they have a "right" to a car. Thet got a right to kick up the ass okay. But a car is a priviledge to be earned no matter where ya live and even if ye are some namby-pamby, artsy-fartsy, bleedin' heart socialist, never-worked-a-day, fairy boy who thinks he lives in the country just because there is some corn growin' out back of his subdivision. Kick his ass into the fields to do some real work some one should.

As Catholics it is our duty to show care and compassion for those less fortunate than ourselves and there is no act more compassionate than saving the poor unfortunate homless from being seen in public.

Let us pray for the police officers who are charged with the saintly duty of placing their lives on the line as they approach and apprehend for removal all of these incarnations of our Saviour Jesus Christ who do not belong on downtown streets at this time of happiness but out along the Kingston Rd strip where His presence might enlighten the heathen suburbanites.


And, finally, let us pray for joemama, who, without benefit of brain nor wit, has managed to post. Surely this demonstrates that the Lord our God is still performing miracles upon the unwashed and undeserving. Amen.

The problem with Philip Owen is that the man, most of the time, has about as much charm as a sidewalk and probably about as much thinking - you know, all concrete and no abstract.
