Quotes from Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead & More


"...Come, my friends, Tis not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars until I die.

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." - Ulysses, Tennyson
"Everything is a non-issue, until someone decides otherwise." - The Universe
"If things do not turn out as we wish, we shall wish for them to turn out as they do." - Aristotle
"Then it got down off the mushroom and crawled away into the grass, merely remarking as it went, ‘One side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow shorter.’

"So the question may not be what is completely new but rather what is assembling recycled parts in a completely new way." - Via
