Do you have a favorite quote? One of my favorites is:

"I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling." --Frida Kahlo

I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later.

Mitch Hedberg

I love Mitch Hedberg. One of my favorite jokes is from him: “An escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. You should never see an ‘Escalator temporarily out of order’ sign, just ‘Escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.’”

I always liked the sentiment behind this quote illustrating a certain hypocrisy in Christian values:

“But who prays for Satan? Who in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most, our one fellow and brother who most needed a friend yet had not a single one, the one sinner among us all who had the highest and clearest right to every Christian's daily and nightly prayers, for the plain and unassailable reason that his was the first and greatest need, he being among sinners the supremest?”
Mark Twain's Autobiography

Lucifer must not have been saved.

@RoboGraham I guess his name was never written in The Book of Life.

Just when you think you see light at the end of the tunnel you realise it is some bastard bringing you more work,
Such is life - without a wife
twice as bad with one.
Lie's a bitch, then you marry one
Life sucks and then you die
