    With upcoming elections in my province, I’m reminded of this nugget by Mark Twain:

    “Politicians, like diapers, should be changed often, and for the same reason.”

    I agree fully with that statement.

    Having just read Frankenstein, I thought I’d place a couple of my favorite lines here.

    “if I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear”

    “I am malicious because I am miserable. Am I not shunned and hated by all mankind? You, my creator, would tear me to pieces and triumph; remember that, and tell me why I should pity man more than he pities me? … Shall I respect man when he condemns me?”

    “I desired love and fellowship, and I was still spurned. Was there no injustice in this? Am I to be thought the only criminal, when all humankind sinned against me?”

    -The Creation, who is by far my favorite character of the book

    Read a good one today:

    “If you have anything to say, make sure your words are sweet. You never know when you may have to turn around and eat them.”

    “People were created to be loved.
    Things were created to be used.
    The reason why the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved, and people are being used.”

    From one of my performance pieces, commenting on how do you know where a rock comes from?

    . . . what if Mt. Rushmore’s sculptor was almost done, [mime hammer & chisel] and George Washington had this booger . . . [crane neck as if looking up inside giant nose]

    Been listening to Tom Lehrer a lot lately, so here’s a favourite line from one of the pre-song bits:
    “Life is like a sewer; What you get out of it depends on what you put into it.”
