"In an honest service there is thin commons, low wages, and hard labor; in this, plenty and satiety, pleasure and ease, liberty and power; and who would not balance creditor on this side, when all the hazard that is run for it, at worst, is only a sour look or two at choking. No, a merry life and a short one, shall be my motto." Edward "BlackBeard" Teach

 

"I am sorry to see you here, but if you had fought like a man, you needn't be hanged like a dog." -Anne Bonny said to Calico Jack in prison after he had decided to surrender to pirate hunters instead of fight.

A couple good ones from Mark Twain:

 

I did not attend his funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.

 

I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.


Buckle up. I'm going to try something. I saw it on a cartoon once... but I'm almost positive it can be done.

The last words of Dominique Bouhours, a renowned French grammarian:

''I am about to -- or I am going to -- die: either expression is correct.'' Some people just have a grim sense of humour.

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."   Mark Twain attributed the quote to 19th-century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.

Dr. Strangelove, Peter Sellers as the President of the United States. One of the greatest films of all time ( and funniest! ).

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives…
You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours…
You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."
-Mustafa Kamal Ataturk, memorial to the Anzacs that died at Gallipolli (attacking his country.)

You should watch it.  It's not hard to get hold of, one way or another, and it's Peter Sellers' finest hour.   You will never hear the phrase 'precious bodily fluids' in the same way again....

 

... and of course, you learn to stop worrying and love the bomb.

Indeed. I quote it often. Not often you see someone memorialize their foe so honorably.

Stop what you are doing. Watch this movie. Your precious bodily fluids may depend on it.

Beat me to that one. I was one click from posting it when I saw yours. That movie had some of the best actors of the time.
