Thumbs up hanging in the air in exactly the same way bricks don't....

Which reminds me of something Mandy in 'Grim & Evil' said; "Hope is wasted on the hopeless"

My favorite line is a tie from two bond movies.

The first is from goldeneye. Bond surprises Valentine Zucovski pointing a gun at the back of his head. Valentine - "5.76 mm walter ppk. I know of three men who use such a gun. I believe I've killed two of them." Bond - "Lucky me."

And the second is from Goldfinger, and is much more well known. It's when Goldfinger has James Bond straped to a table and inches a laser closer towards him to eventually kill him.Bond - "You expect me to talk?" Golfinger - "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!"

My all time favorite "I wish I had said that..."
from Robert Heinlein:
"A Human Being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."


The other quotes I posted earlier are mine.

Ahh Bond films certainly do have a few good quotes, the one that gets me smiling without fail and proves to the world that Roger Moore was the best Bond is from Live and let die: Bond has just been 'entertaining' agent Rosie Carver when he pulls a gun on her "James! You're not going to shoot me after what we've just done?" Bond raises one eyebrow "Well I certainly wouldn't have shot you before"

it is an illusion that youth is happy,
an illusion of those who have lost it

one who aims at nothing is sure to hit it

I can't remember who said this: Even if you're on the right track you'll get run over if you just sit there.
