paula paula said: "You can take the boy out of Western PA, but... We are enjoying this book on audio so much - my boys cheer with glee every time Tim Federle says "melk" (milk) or "crain" (crayon) - just like their dad, their uncles, and their all-time favorite, Jack G...more "

Stephen Fry
“If I had a large amount of money I should certainly found a hospital for those whose grip upon the world is so tenuous that they can be severely offended by words and phrases and yet remain all unoffended by the injustice, violence and oppression that howls daily about our ears.”
Stephen Fry, Paperweight

Anthony Bourdain
“No one understands and appreciates the American Dream of hard work leading to material rewards better than a non-American. ”
Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

Dr. Seuss
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
Dr. Seuss

“Swords, Lances, arrows, machine guns, and even high explosives have had far less power over the fates of nations than the typhus louse, the plague flea, and the yellow-fever mosquito. Civilizations have retreated from the plasmodium of malaria, and armies have crumbled into rabbles under the onslaught of cholera spirilla, or of dysentery and typhoid bacilli. Huge areas have bee devastated by the trypanosome that travels on the wings of the tsetse fly, and generations have been harassed by the syphilis of a courtier. War and conquest and that herd existence which is an accompaniment of what we call civilization have merely set the stage for these more powerful agents of human tragedy.”
Hans Zinsser, Rats, Lice and History

Douglas Adams
“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time
