“I’m the enemy because I like to think. I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy that could sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs or the side order of gravy fries? I want high cholesterol. I would eat bacon and butter and buckets of cheese. Okay? I want to smoke Cuban cigars the size of
Cincinnati in the nonsmoking section. I want to run through the streets naked with green Jell-O all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I might suddenly feel the need to. Okay, pal?”
Denis Leary

  Mark Twain

George Bernard Shaw

“Some men can live up to their loftiest ideals without ever going higher than a basement.”  
Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”

Northeast Mississippi who could shake his hips and still be loved by rednecks, cops, and hippies.”
 Jimmy Buffett

Jackie Gleason
