Default Classic Monty

"Most affections are habits or duties we lack the courage to end."
Henri de Montherlant

WRQ9 on 2012-03-12 16:03:28
Nice guy, eh?

abra on 2014-02-01 08:29:38
Wow! So glad he's not in my family.

montyb on 2014-02-17 12:12:37
Tell me about it. I have to invite him for Christmas every year.

JenDiaz72 on 2014-09-24 06:28:35
LOL Montyb

susanith on 2017-03-20 01:49:29
Scary. And sad for him.

maradnu on 2017-06-22 14:34:07
Sometimes true.

Persephone59 on 2017-09-05 18:51:35
Monty, why don't you help him find the courage to end the habit?

writeon on 2018-02-06 22:03:20
Oh the courage it took for poor Henri to try to stop going to Monty's every Christmas, but Monty kept insisting on having the famous Montherlant fruitcake.

Good job not splitting that infinitive

I split an infinitive once. It took several weeks to heal.

maradnu on 2017-04-06 15:30:21
How many stitches did it require?

skeeter on 2017-11-05 07:25:55
An infinite number.

Make them an offer they can't refuse.

universalmom on 2014-04-15 09:51:40
In context, a scary statement!

LLapp on 2015-02-08 20:08:40
What do you get when you cross a Mafioso with a semiotician?

kb83 on 2015-04-01 04:33:18
A semiot-a-Mafic? An ichthyologist?

abra on 2016-01-23 11:08:04
I have no idea what the answer is (I had to google semiotician), but I love kb83's first answer.

kb83 on 2016-03-30 04:01:38
I hope LLapp gets back to this quote, so we can all learn her answer. Conversations take a long, long time, on this site.

LLapp on 2016-06-05 14:38:28
And the answer is: An offer you can't understand. (Maybe next time I'll just include the punchline with the riddle!)

marnita on 2016-07-10 08:53:24
It's more fun this way, LLapp.

KMMRN on 2017-02-20 06:05:27
I liked kb83's answer.

kb83 on 2017-04-05 08:38:18
Well, I like my answer too, but I also like the real answer. Thanks, LLapp.

Default quotes-Not sure what Melania Trump has to do with it though.

"By necessity, by proclivity, and by delight, we all quote. In fact, it is as difficult to appropriate the thoughts of others as it is to invent."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

oddcouple on December 7th, 2014
I love quotes about quotes.

Spenser on January 16th, 2015
oddcouple just coined a quote about quotes about quotes.

abra on August 21st, 2015
Spenser just coined a quote, about oddcouple coining a quote, about quotes.

marnita on May 26th, 2016
Quoting quoted quotes about quotes - this could get ridiculous.

marnita on July 20th, 2016
Just ask Melania Trump.

Default Elbert's most famous essay was A Message to Garcia

"Lovers are fools, but Nature makes them so. "
Elbert Hubbard

wolf on 2015-10-06 00:02:41
He wrote A Message To Garcia? Did he get an answer?

montyb on 2016-06-06 15:59:08
Yes. Garcia wrote back asking Hubbard to try to keep it under 140 characters.

May all your sentences end after a period.

Default And the beat goes on...

See Queethebean's post on page 88 of this thread...

"One man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world will be better for this."
Joe Darion

THis always brings back wonderful memories. When I was 16, a "state gleeclub" made up of hundreds of HS students sang this...and I was lucky enough to be a part of it all. To Dream the Impossible Dream....

haverwench on May 16th, 2013
The line is backward. It should start with, "And the world will be better for this: that one man..."

abra on July 27th, 2013
I wish I had recognized it sooner.

nevadasmith68 on September 13th, 2013
Isn't this from "Man Of La Mancha"?

debzhaus on February 12th, 2014
yes it is out of order

LLapp on November 12th, 2017
My last quote was from the song "Over the Rainbow." I better put on tap shoes so I'm ready for the next one.
