This hunger for novelty which makes sensuous love equally changeful and rapacious, which makes us seek the same emotion in other bodies which we cast off as fast as they fall turns life into an infernal succession of disenchantments, spites and scorn; and it is chiefly that hunger for novelty which leaves us a prey to unrealizable hope and irrevocable regret. Those lovers who persist in remaining together execute themselves; the name of their common death, which at first was Absence, becomes Presence.
We must remain constantly vigilant. We dare not underestimate our enemy. Al Qaeda is committed to the destruction of America, and they are in it for the long haul. They are much smarter than many give them credit for being, and they are definitely much more patient than the pace of our fast-food society conditions us to be. Their commitment does not depend on bin Laden or any other single leader.

My own father had always said the measure of a man wasn't how many times or how hard he got knocked down, but how fast he got back up.
Do not speak fast, for that shows folly.
There's good news and bad news about 2 Fast 2 Furious, the moronic follow-up to The Fast and the Furious and a contender for the worst movie of 2003. The good news is that it's better, albeit marginally, than Freddy Got Fingered. The bad news is that it's 15 minutes longer.
Always felt like you was so accustomed to the fast life, have a nigga thinking that he met you in a past life.
And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand, and I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can. (Dear John)
And Ill look back and regret how I ignored when they said, Run as fast as you can.
The whole Renaissance tradition is antipethic to me. The hard-and-fast rules of perspective which it succeeded in imposing on art were a ghastly mistake which it has taken four centuries to redress; Cezanne and after him Picasso and myself can take a lot of credit for this Scientific perspective forces the objects in a picture to disappear away form the beholder instead of bringing them within his reach as painting should.
