  • I eat as much as I ever did, I drink more than I should, and my sex life is none of your goddamned business.

  • If I had known this, I would've put that patch on thirty-five years earlier.
  • We had a pretty good time together, when she wasn't trying to kill me!

  • With a lot of blacks, there's quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can't all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don't believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.
