"We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered." - Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

"I love writing but hate starting. The page is awfully white and it says, 'you may have fooled some of the people some of the time but those days are over, giftless. I'm not your agent and I'm not your mommy. I'm a white piece of paper, you wanna dance with me?' And I really, really don't." -- Aaron Sorkin

"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country." -Kurt Vonnegut

"When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth." -Cynthia Heimel

"The President confessed to having had limited experience with enraged rabbits. He was unable to reach a definite conclusion about its state of mind. What was obvious, however, was that this large, wet animal, making strange hissing noises and gnashing its teeth, was intent upon climbing into the Presidential boat."

"I knew she could take care of herself. And yet something seemed to propel me to action. The trousers, perhaps."

"...the good Watson had at that time deserted me for a wife, the only selfish action which I can recall in our association. I was alone."

"It was worth a wound - it was worth many wounds - to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation."

"Your popularity is grating on my nerves and I'm going to go out and have fun in a way that is guaranteed to annoy you."

"If Christ was indeed born to suffer for our sins, I take it as my sacred duty to sin enough to make the sacrifice worth his while."

"Na dně moře máme failsave mechanismus. Obrovskou silou vytrhl kotvu města ze dna oceánu. My jsme zhrozili sme sme – zhrozili jsme se to. Neuvěřitelný c-co se to děje, a ten hluk! Celé město se třáslo, jako při zemětřesení, to bylo něco neuvěřitelnýho. A najednou oh. Se hneme. Celé město stoupalo, stoupalo nahoru, nahoru k hladině. To, to bylo něco neuvěřitelnýho. A-a-am-a a věže prorazily hladinu a vyjeli jsme nahoru, nahoru. Vody, vlny vodopády, všechno teče z těch vejšek a vy-vystřelili jsme nahoru, úplně, úplně na vršek. A najednou – Slunce, sluníčko prostě. Proudilo do všech voken. Do smrti, do smrti na to nezapomenu..."

"Wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair and all the terrible things that happen to us, come because we actually deserve them? So now I take comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the Universe." Marcus Cole

“I have had, and may have still, a thousand friends, as they are called, in life, who are like one’s partners in the waltz of this world—not much remembered when the ball is over.” Lord Byron
