    Craig Ferguson
    “The Universe is very, very big.
    It also loves a paradox. For example, it has some extremely strict rules.
    Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever.
    Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun. It is an absolute rule. Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies.

    Rule number two: Everything lasts forever.”
    Craig Ferguson, Between the Bridge and the River

    Hugh Laurie
    “In books, day breaks, and night falls. In life, night rises from the ground. The day hangs on for as long as it can, bright and eager, absolutely and positively the last guest to leave the party, while the ground darkens, oozing night around your ankles, swallowing for ever that dropped contact lens, making you miss that low catch in the gully on the last ball of the last over.”
    Hugh Laurie, The Gun Seller

    Craig Ferguson
    “Its hard to stay up. Its been a long long day
    And you've got the sandman at your door.
    But hang on, leave the TV on and lets do it anyway.
    Its ok.
    You can always sleep through work tomorrow. Ok?
    Hey, Hey, Tomorrow's just your future yesterday.
    Tell the clock on the wall, "Forget the wake up call."
    Cause the night's not nearly through.
    Wipe the sleep from your eyes. Give yourself a surprise.
    Let your worries wait another day.
    And if you stay too late at the bar,
    At least you made it out this far.
    So make up your mind and say, "Let's do it anyway!"
    Its Ok
    You can always sleep through work tomorrow, ok?
    Hey, Hey, Tomorrow's just your future yesterday.
    Life's too short to worry about
    the things that you can live without
    And I regret to say,
    the morning light is hours away.
    The world can be such a fright,
    But it belongs to us tonight.
    What's the point of going to bed?
    You look so lovely when your eyes are red.
    Tomorrow's just your future yesterday.”
    Craig Ferguson

    Craig Ferguson, American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

    Michael  Jackson
    “In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
    Michael Jackson

    Stephen Fry
    “Choking with dry tears and raging, raging, raging at the absolute indifference of nature and the world to the death of love, the death of hope and the death of beauty, I remember sitting on the end of my bed, collecting these pills and capsules together and wondering why, why when I felt I had so much to offer, so much love, such outpourings of love and energy to spend on the world, I was incapable of being offered love, giving it or summoning the energy with which I knew I could transform myself and everything around me.”
    Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot

    Stephen Fry
    “Language is my whore, my mistress, my wife, my pen-friend, my check-out girl. Language is a complimentary moist lemon-scented cleansing square or handy freshen-up wipette. Language is the breath of God, the dew on a fresh apple, it's the soft rain of dust that falls into a shaft of morning sun when you pull from an old bookshelf a forgotten volume of erotic diaries; language is the faint scent of urine on a pair of boxer shorts, it's a half-remembered childhood birthday party, a creak on the stair, a spluttering match held to a frosted pane, the warm wet, trusting touch of a leaking nappy, the hulk of a charred Panzer, the underside of a granite boulder, the first downy growth on the upper lip of a Mediterranean girl, cobwebs long since overrun by an old Wellington boot.”
    Stephen Fry

    George Harrison
    “It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.”
    George Harrison

    Craig Ferguson
    “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with telling the truth. I know it isn’t fashionable.”
    Craig Ferguson


  • #29
    Craig Ferguson
    “Be careful who you choose as your hero or who you choose to deify, be it Clay Aiken or Barack Obama. You put all you're hope and all your dreams and all your ideas about stuff into one human being. They're a human being they're going to let you down.

    You can't make someone your hero because of something you read on the internet. The internet is not a source of information it is a source of disinformation.”
    Craig Ferguson

    Craig Ferguson
    “Gillette--The best a man can get."

    I stared at the screen. What happened to me? I was meant to be one of those guys, vigorous and athletic and successful and, most of all, American. I was going to walk on the moon, be a movie star or a rock got or a comedian. I was going to have an amazing life and kids with Helen and die like Chaplin a thousand years from now in my Beverly Hills mansion surrounded by my adoring family, with the grieving world media standing by. Instead, I was just another show-business mediocrity. A drunk who shat his pants and ran for help.

    My life had been careless and selfish. Pleasure in the moment was my only thought, my solitary motivation. I had disappointed whoever had been foolish enough to love me, and left them scarred.

    I was a very long way from being the best a man can get.”
    Craig Ferguson, American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot
