We bloggers like a good quote, don't we?

This group is for your favourite quotations, and i'm not just talking about things you read in Bartlett's. It could be an inspirational excerpt from an ancient text; a memorable line from a movie; advice an old school teacher gave that stuck with you. It can even be something you overheard at the bus stop this morning.

Add a poignant photo to accompany your quote.

If you tag the posts, perhaps we can build up a searchable bank of our own favourite words, phrases, quotations...

You get the picture. Join the group and get quoting. You can quote me on that.

“The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.”

“The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them”

Thank you. Do you like Stephen King's work?

That's OK, ramble on, I'm still not allowed to let my hand get tired so I can't, but I can still read someone else's rambling...

Briefly, I've read a few, and seen some of the movies. He is indeed very clever. There is a British horror writer called James Herbert who I also like.

But with the exception of scary clowns and especially Pennywise (and who does like clowns) I have found real life to much more frightening than fiction.

Did you ever see that episode of Malcolm in the middle where they beat up the clowns? I cheered.... : )

I didn't see the one with the bats. As well as stopping reading fiction, somewhere back there I stopped watching TV too. I watch very little now.

I liked the eldest son Francis best...

I lost interest after the Tommyknockers. Got a third of the way in, got bored and never read another. Funny thing is, that year I was given two copies of Tommyknockers for Christmas.

I DO watch TV but only comedies and documentaries. Actually, mostly comedies.

taniwha: In the interests of complete disclosure and at risk of getting a dead leg from The Boyfy for using a keyboard when I'm supposed to be resting my bad hand, my favourite Stephen King film is
*langoliers* but I didn't read the book. I also like comedies, most recently The Inbetweeners and the Thick of it. Any reality TV or audience participation stuff makes me heave! Especially if it is on a Saturday evening... : (

Season 3 of the Thick of it is still on iplayer. I play to put aside some time and gorge. Peep Show marathon on late this Saturday. Need to watch.

You don't like Peep Show? I love the whole skin crawling humour of it BUT after 6 episodes in a row will probably end up feeling rather dirty.

I think ~R~ thinks the peep show might be porn! It's not ~R~ it's very quality British comedy.

taniwha says:

hohoho, didn't think of that. If I mainly watch what I class as comedy or documentary, I wonder what category porn falls into?

Craft says:

I like the peep show well enough because the characters are so whack but I prefer that Mitchell and Webb look. Also Armstrong and Miller, OMG, the airmen, they crack me up every time...Fo' shiz!
