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."

[It] became a cult film, appropriately enough, down under. It did well in other countries, but not in Merrie England, where our dour-faced critics insisted on taking it seriously. How on earth can you take seriously the vision of Catherine Oxenberg, dressed in Marks & Spencer’s underwear, being sacrificed to a fake, phallic worm two hundred feet long?

“I went to the Democratic Convention as a journalist, and returned a raving beast.”

His journalism morphed into something entirely original, laced with vitriolic scorn and dripping in sarcasm—henceforth, the writer would be at the forefront of the story, outrageous and bold, like a Hemingway for the hippie era.

Boys, this is the greatest adventure in military history. Here we sit in the enemy’s country with only a handful of troops, looking down the throats of nineteen fully armed divisions and seventy million fanatics. One false move and the Alamo would look like a Sunday-school picnic!
