He who would take an hour to say what could be said in 5 minutes surely is capable of other crimes. (unsure of source: it's a quote on my boss's wall)

And, in a related matter: As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler .(Henry David Thoreau)

I believe he said this quote on The Muppets, which makes it even more awesomely bizarre. Sellers was a strange dude

I could never divorce my wife, i would be afraid she might actually find happiness.
"no name"

My wedding day was the best day of my life, the only day i could imagine would be better is if we ever got divorced.
"Mrs. no name"

Not so much a quote as a little story i hear about Winston Churchill it goes...

One day Wisston Churchill was sitting having a Brandy with male firends, and Winston was making all the guys laugh by telling them how a wifes place is in the Kitchen and the Bedroom. When the maid came in and heard of all the "talk" and was clearly bothered by it. Churchill asked her is she disapproved of what he said. She said "yes, and if i was your wife i would poison your drink." Churchill responded. "no need my lady, if you were my wife i would poison myself."
