Quotations I found recently

Oscar Wilde

I have often been called a Nazi, and, although it is unfair, I don't let it bother me. I don't let it bother me for one simple reason. No one has ever had a fantasy about being tied to a bed and sexually ravished by someone dressed as a liberal.
P.J. O' Rourke

I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.
Rudyard Kipling
(This explains why blogging and Facebook are addictive.)

All food is the gift of the gods and has something of the miraculous, the egg no less than the truffle.
Sybille Bedford

Make it a lifelong habit to seek out smart people with whom you disagree.
Liesl Tziolis

Your birthday is the date God decided the world couldn't carry on without you.
Rabbi Schneerson 

The modern Christian does not ask God to forgive him, but to admit that sin does not exist. 
Nicolás Gómez Dávila

Sheep encouraged to search the mountainside till they find the answer they want to hear. An Oratorian priest quoted on Twitter by louiseallain 

More intelligent individuals experience lower life satisfaction with more frequent socialisation with friends.
A recent study published in the British Journal of Psychology, lead researchers, Satoshi Kanazawa and Norman Li
