Golf is like chasing a quinine pill around a cow pasture. ~Winston Churchill

"Why, flowers are violent, cruel, terrible and splendid... like love!" He picked a ranunculus which gently swayed its golden head above the grass beside him, and with infinite delicacy, slowly and amorously, he turned it between his fat red fingers, from which the dried blood scaled off in places: "Isn't it adorable?" he repeated, looking at it. "It's so little, so fragile, and besides, it's all of nature; all the beauty and power of nature. It contains the world. A puny and relentless organism which goes straight to the goal of its desire! Ah, milady, flowers do not indulge in sentiment. They indulge in passion, nothing but passion. And they make love all the time, and in every fashion. They think of nothing else; and how right they are! Perverse? Because they obey the only law of life; because they are satisfied with the only need of life, which is love? But consider, milady, the flower is only a reproductive organ. Is there anything healthier, stronger, or more beautiful than that? These marvelous petals, those silks, these velvets... these soft, supple, and caressing materials are the curtains of the alcove, the draperies of the bridal chamber, the perfumed bed where they unite, where they pass their ephemeral and immortal life, swooning with love. What an admirable example for us!" ~"The Garden," Chapter 6

In Beverley Hills, they don't throw their garbage away - they make it into television shows. ~Woody Allen

One man's quiet is another man's din. ~Carrie Latet

America is so vast that almost everything said about it is likely to be true, and the opposite is probably equally true. ~James T. Farrell

Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they're in the game. ~Paul Rodriguez

What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive. ~Arnold Palmer

Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls. ~David Thomas

A full heart has room for everything and an empty heart has room for nothing. ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin
