"Aint it funny how it is...you never miss it till its gone away" ~ Steve Harris
"Because we don't know, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember as certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps 4 and 5 times more. Perhaps not even. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20. And yet it all seems limitless." ~James Bowles
"Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid."
"There is only one god and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to death: not today." ~ George RR Martin
After the film "Psycho"'s release Alfred Hitchcock received an angry letter from the father of a girl who refused to bathe after seeing Les Diaboliques and to shower after seeing "Psycho"...
Hitchcock sent a note back, simply saying
"Send her to the dry cleaners."
