    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteA fact is like a sack - it won't stand up if it's empty. To make it stand up, first you have to put in it all the reasons and feelings that caused it in the first place.

 Luigi Pirandello quotes (Italian short-story Playwright, Writer, Dramatist and Novelist, who became famous as an innovator in modern drama with his creation of the “theater within the theater” in the 1920s, 1867-1936)

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteFEMALE, n. One of the opposing, or unfair, sex.



The Maker, at Creation's birth, With living things had stocked the earth. From elephants to bats and snails, They all were good, for all were males. But when the Devil came and saw He said: "By Thine eternal law Of growth, maturity, decay, These all must quickly pass away And leave untenanted the earth Unless Thou dost establish birth" -- Then tucked his head beneath his wing To laugh --he had no sleeve --the thing With deviltry did so accord, That he'd suggested to the Lord. The Master pondered this advice, Then shook and threw the fateful dice Wherewith all matters here below Are ordered, and observed the throw; Then bent His head in awful state, Confirming the decree of Fate. From every part of earth anew The conscious dust consenting flew, While rivers from their courses rolled To make it plastic for the mould. Enough collected (but no more, For niggard Nature hoards her store) He kneaded it to flexible clay, While Nick unseen threw some away. And then the various forms He cast, Gross organs first and finer last; No one at once evolved, but all By even touches grew and small Degrees advanced, till, shade by shade, To match all living things He'd made Females, complete in all their parts Except (His clay gave out) the hearts.

"No matter," Satan cried; "with speed I'll fetch the very hearts they need" -- So flew away and soon brought back The number needed, in a sack. That night earth range with sounds of strife -- Ten million males each had a wife; That night sweet Peace her pinions spread O'er Hell --ten million devils dead! --G.J.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteIMMODEST, adj. Having a strong sense of one's own merit, coupled with a feeble conception of worth in others.



There was once a man in Ispahan Ever and ever so long ago, And he had a head, the phrenologists said, That fitted him for a show.



For his modesty's bump was so large a lump

(Nature, they said, had taken a freak) That its summit stood far above the wood Of his hair, like a mountain peak.



So modest a man in all Ispahan, Over and over again they swore -- So humble and meek, you would vainly seek; None ever was found before.



Meantime the hump of that awful bump Into the heavens contrived to get To so great a height that they called the wight The man with the minaret.



There wasn't a man in all Ispahan Prouder, or louder in praise of his chump: With a tireless tongue and a brazen lung He bragged of that beautiful bump



Till the Shah in a rage sent a trusty page Bearing a sack and a bow-string too, And that gentle child explained as he smiled:

"A little present for you."



The saddest man in all Ispahan, Sniffed at the gift, yet accepted the same.

"If I'd lived," said he, "my humility Had given me deathless fame!" --Sukker Uffro

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteTo me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say, Sorry, got these sacks. - Deep Thoughts (Saturday Night Live)

 Jack Handy quotes (American Writer and cast member of Saturday Night Live from 1991-2003. Famous for his Deep Thoughts comedy sketches.)
