July 7th Quotes
"Let's make my birthday, July the 7th at noon, Peace and
Love Day. Everybody go, 'Peace and love.' In the office, on the
bus, wherever. It's still peace and love for me, I'm a product
of the 60s and it was a very influential period in my life, and
you know, my head was turned around a bit, my eyes were opened
as it were. In fact, I even have it on my arm, 'Peace and love'.
I see nothing wrong with peace and love."
"The Pearly Gates. Am I the only one who finds it odd that
Heaven has gates? What kind of neighborhood is Heaven in?"
"How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?"
"If you fight back and get hit, it hurts a little while;
if you dont fight back it hurts forever."
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an
invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write
a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort
the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve
equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer,
cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization
is for insects."
"Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never
been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching."
"Whenever you correct someone's grammar just remember that
nobody likes you."
