Quotables from notables

Why? Because even the best of us sometimes give in to the siren call of rhymes and alliteration.

"I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal." —Jane Austen

"You’re a full-grown man with teenage daughters who are probably dealing with the sexist, body-obsessed media environment that is difficult for all women. Is this really the legacy you want to be leaving for yourself?" Meghan McCain to Glenn Beck

"The fear that your best friend is leaving you behind for someone more successful, cooler[...]more anything; the crappiness of hooking up with a guy who is not worth your time, even though you tell yourself you're cool with it, you're just "having fun;" the bottom we inevitably hit when we realize life isn't going as we planned it: these are all true things that are rarely represented in giant mainstream movies."

The Bust movie review of "Bridesmaids"

"If the sky catches on fire next week, and you’re one of those people eagerly awaiting the burning of the wicked, odds are you’ll be one of them." Trib columnist Robert Kirby
