Here are the quotes I wrote down from Scent of the Roses.

"Recollection is the only paradise from which we cannot be turned out."
-- Jean Paul Richter

"Long, long be my heart with such memories free'd!
Like the vase in which roses have once been distill'd.
You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will,
But the scent of the roses will hang round it still."
-- Thomas Moore, "Farewell But Whenever"

"The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story,
and writes another."
-- James Matthew Barrie

"If you cannot be free, be as free as you can."

"The next 10 years are going to be terrible. After that, you'll get
used to it."

"It's nice to just sit here in the sun, doing nothing."

Also, here's the link to the "Saving Private Ryan is every movie":

And you're right, Slate's review of "There's Something About Mary" is

Nice quote: "Losers competing against one another (and even bigger
losers) for a dishy woman."

Oh, and the Thomas Friedman 8/8/98 Foreign Affairs piece on motives for
the bombing was great. I only wish it were available at
so I could FoRK it, but alas, their search engine cannot find it online.


.sig double play!

Maybe I don't want to sit around for the rest of my life explaining
stuff to people that is painfully obvious to me.

Let the marketplace decide.
