Dog philosophy
If you can't eat it or fuck it piss on it.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

"So we must beware of a tyranny of opinion which tries to make only one side of a question the one which may be heard. Everyone is in favour of it. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage."

Before rushing around to your neighbor's house to warn them that there's a kangeroo in their backyard, remember to double check that its not their Great Dane having a shit.

Once, my neighbor bought a baby goat to have slaughtered for Christmas Dinner.

Now, quite a few years later, that same goat tries to raid my vegetable garden.

When the legions of morons unite, and consider their words on a screen the equivalent of the writings of Plato with a dash of Mao, the wise man retreats behind a wall of social critique and self-satire, with a dash of Hunter S Thompson.

Since the first day I was in the camp in Germany, I heard prisoners say, "I would like to live one hour longer than the Germans and see their defeat. I don't care if I die." And as time went on, it became also my life-motive, my thinking. Let's survive them! [Suppresses tears. – Ed.] Even for a short time. [Whispers. – Ed.] I'm sorry. You see when I say it, I live it. So. . . .

What is wisdom? It has nothing to do with beliefs. These change from person to person and from day to day. Only one who does not dare give up beliefs because he has no wisdom will insist that others believe as he does. Cleverness learns something, but wisdom gives up some certainty every day."

"I want very much to write this script and Joe very much wants it, and I think it probably will get written during this next season, but one never knows. I don't want to promise because if you promise, then all of a sudden fans on the internet start screaming, 'Well, where is it, where is it? Why doesn't he do it, why isn't he doing it? He's late again, he's late again.' And then I have to get cranky, go to their house and nail their heads to a coffee table!"

Actress Frances Barber remembered an occasion when he [Geoffrey Palmer – Ed.] had queried a residuals payment he had received for the ubiquitous commercial.

"I just called my agent and said they've put too many 0's on the cheque," she recalled him saying. "After lunch he said 'Apparently they haven't'. His face didn't change."
