Ok, I'm going through a lot of old stuff and throwing most of it away. I have a notebook that I used to write quotes down in high school and college (because I'm a reader and I'm quote geek... maybe that's one thing that appealed to me about Tastefully Simple). Anyway, I'm throwing the notebook away, but not before I do a quiz on some of the quotes I'd written down. The type of quote it is is written in parenthesis after the quote itself. They are in the same order that I wrote them down.

  1. After all, tomorrow is another day and Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. (book) (WN, Joanna, Jaime, Nick - Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell)
  2. It is no ordinary skeleton. (book)
  3. There is incessant influx of novelty into the world, and yet we tolerate incredible dulness. and The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star. (book)
  4. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. (book) (WN & Nick - Animal Farm by George Orwell)
  5. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. (play) (WN, Joanna, Nick & Jaime - Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare)
  6. XXX believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther... and one fine morning -- So, we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. (one of my favorite quotes, I have it memorized. It's a book) (WN & Nick - The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald)
  7. It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man. (tv show) (WN - Saturday Night Live - Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey)
  8. If they can call the champagne province Champagne, why don't they call Wisconsin cheese? -- A guy in my French IV class, you don't need to guess that one.
  9. Well, there's bound to be rough waters, and I know I'll take some falls, but with the good Lord as my captain, I can make it through them all. (song) (WN - The River by Garth Brooks)
  10. There's small choice in rotten apples. (play)
  11. All true believers shall break their eggs at the convenient end. (book)
  12. I died that day! And you can die too for all I care! (movie) (WN, Jaime & Nick - The Princess Bride)
  13. Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December, and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. (book/poem type thing) (WN, Joanna & kinda Jaime - The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe)
  14. The bridge is crossed, so stand and watch it burn. (play/musical) (Joanna - The Phantom of the Opera)
  15. There are years that ask questions and years that answer. (book) (Mary - There Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston)
  16. In the rain, the pavement shines like silver, all the lights are misty in the river. (play/musical) (Joanna & Jaime - Les Miserables)
  17. When I was seventeen, I walked into the jungle and when I was twenty-one I walked out. And by God, I was rich! (play)
  18. Nature's first green is gold. (poem, but if you can get just the author, that's fine.)
  19. They drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks back to the phone company, the record store, too. (song, which I liked because I drove a Buick and worked in a record store) (Joanna, Jaime & Nick - Sheryl Crow, All I Wanna Do)
  20. Why you buggin'? (person, but Jess would know this one)
  21. Home is where your rump rests. (movie) (Jaime - The Lion King (poumbaa specifically))
  22. Some pig! (book) (Jaime, Nick & WN - Charlottes Web by EB White)
  23. Bacon tastes good, pork chops taste good. (movie) (Joanna - Pulp Fiction)
  24. I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. (poem) (WN, Joanna, Jaime, Nick - The Road Less Traveled by Robert Frost)
  25. O, what a rogue and peasant slave am I. (play) (WN, Joanna, Jaime - Hamlet by William Shakespeare)
  26. Wind the frog! (movie)
There were more, but I'm bored now.

I plead Tired Mommy syndrome. I know the poem is called The Raven, really I do. I just had a momentary lapse of intelligence.

(But I didn't get the Phantom of the Opera quote, like you said I did. I should've, but I didn't. Joey did.)

Kim said...

... corrected. It gets easy to get people all confused and such.

Mary said...

I think #15 is Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.

Jaime said...

21 just came to me. The Lion King.
