Still Occupied In Thought and Thong

In Thought and Thong (w/ Tom Stoppard Quotes)

"My whole life is waiting for the questions to which I have prepared answers." -

"I disagree with everything you say, but I would attack to the death your right to say it."

"An essentially private (wo)man who wished his (/her) total indifference to public notice be universally recognized."

"War is capitalism with the gloves off and many who go to war know it but they go to war because they don't want to be a hero. It takes courage to sit down and be counted."

"I had no idea Gwendolyn knew any foreign languages, and I am not sure that I approve. It's the sort of thing that can only broaden a girls' mind."

"For every thousand people, there's nine hundred doing the work, ninety doing well, nine doing good, and one lucky bastard who's the artist."

"I learned three things in Zurich during the war. I wrote them down.

->Firstly, you're either a revolutionary or you're not, and if you're not, you might as well be an artist as anything else.

->Secondly, if you can't be an artist, you might as well be  a revolutionary.....

->I forget the third thing."

"The media. It sounds like a convention of spiritualists."

"Public postures have the configuration of private derangement."

"It's the wanting to know that makes us matter."

" I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you might nudge the world a little or make a poem that children will speak for you when you are dead."

"Act first. The ideas will follow, and, if not---well, it's progress."

Lovin' Stoppard Since Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Were Dead, =)

p.s.: Bonus Quote=> "Power without responsibility---the prerogative of the harlot throughout the ages." - Rudyard Kipling
