Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Quote of the Day II:


Well, yeah, if you're trying to be realistic. All the more reason to film it in flashback, like noir, an interior monologue with lots of nudity and images of heroic behavior. Because that's what it's REALLY like.

Naturally I agree with Rambo and wish he would furnish more details, but I also love the quote from Szymborska. In the 1970e I remember a great Firesign Theater sketch in which Thomas Hardy is about to begin a novel sitting at a desk in a big crowded arena with a play-by-play man describing the action.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
