“What really alarms me about President Bush's 'War on Terrorism' is the grammar. How do you wage war on an abstract noun? How is 'Terrorism' going to surrender? It's well known, in philological circles, that it's very hard for abstract nouns to surrender.”
Terry Jones

“Sarah: That's not fair!

Jareth: You say that so often, I wonder what your basis for comparison is?”
Terry Jones

“Short or long to Goblin City?
The straight way's short
But the long way's pretty...”
