“Shut up…let me tell you, LET ME. Every time I look at your face or even remember it, it wrecks me.

I don’t have enough time in any day to think about you enough...I don’t even think about women anymore. I think about you.”
Louis C.K.

Jimmy Tudeski, Comedian Gone Wrong

“A lot of people say there's a fine line between genius and insanity. I don't think there's a fine line, I actually think there's a yawning gulf. You see some poor bugger scuffling up the road with balloons tied to his ears, he's not going home to invent a rocket, is he?”

Chelsea Handler, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

“We try to stay as thin as possible - which also keeps us weak. When you’re skinny, you have no body fat; when you have no body fat, you’re cold all the time; when you’re cold all time, you stay inside; and when you stay inside... you don’t vote. I may be joking about that last part... but I’m not totally wrong. Ever stop to think that by keeping women eternally preoccupied with superficialities that we might be missing out in important thinks in life?”
