The unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean life is tough.
It takes up a lot of your time and what do you get in the end of it? A death.
What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards.
You should die first, you know,
start out dead; get it out of the way.
an old age home, feeling better every day.
You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, then,
when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day.
You work 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.
You drink alcohol, you party, you're generally promiscuous
(hey, you've only got a few years left, what's the big deal?!?)
and you get ready for High School.
go to primary school, you become a kid, you play,
you have no responsibilities,
you become a baby, then, you spend your last 9 months
floating peacefully with luxuries like central heating, spa,
room service on tap, larger quarters every day,
and then you finish off as an orgasm…
I believe, as long as any
politician or Judge is intolerant toward gays,
lesbians, blacks, unions, women, poor people, and the first, fourth,
fifth, and ninth amendments, I will remain intolerant toward them.

"Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers.
Open unmarked doors.
And if you see a group of people in a field,
go find out what they're doing.
Do things without always knowing how they'll turn out."
"Why are you telling me this?"
"Because you're curious and smart and bored,
and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off.
There are so many adventures that you miss
because you're waiting to think of a plan.
To find them, look for tiny interesting choices.
And remember that you are ALWAYS making up the future as you go."

President Josiah Bartlet: I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I don't say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.
........President Josiah Bartlet: Yes it does. Leviticus.
.............Dr. Jenna Jacobs: 18:22.
President Josiah Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while
I have you here. I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in
Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table
when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask
another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly
says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the
police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town:
touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves,
can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole
town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side?
Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different
threads? Think about those questions, would you?
