Palin Quotes

  • “I always wanted to be an explorer, but - it seemed I was doomed to be nothing more than a very silly person.”

  • “I mistrust total competence. I've always felt life is a series of small disasters we try to get through.”

  • “Armageddon is not around the corner. This is only what the people of violence want us to believe. The complexity and diversity of the world is the hope for the future.”

  • “There is barely a country in the world where you will be completely safe.”

  • “Contrary to what the politicians and religious leaders would like us to believe, the world won't be made safer by creating barriers between people.”

  • “I know that we shall meet problems along the way, but I'd far rather see for myself what's going on in the world outside, than rely on newspapers, television, politicians and religious leaders to tell me what I should be thinking.”

~Michael Palin

What? Who did you think I was talking about?

I get angry and the mere sight of the name Palin. It's a strange reflex.

Michael is still my favorite Palin

Anndi said...

He may be my favourite Python actually... other Palins are mere garden variety snakes ;) (had to... just had to, I've been hanging out with Matt-man too much!)

You know who else was good for a quote? Winston Churchill. I think.
I also think that I drink like him in that I'm not out partying and just more really to function and keep a clear head.

You know, every time I see the name Palin, I automatically think of Monty Python...this post included! It made me chuckle when I got to the end and saw that it was actually him :o)

Well, John Cleese and Eric Idle were pretty damn funny too.

You're especially adorable when you're being incredibly adorable.

Dianne said...

I meant incredibly clever. I just can't get your adorable-ness out of my mind plus I've had half a bottle of wine

Hey, thanks for trying to submit to the truth of water site. I don't know why my form isn't working but i put a note in there to email questions directly to questions@truthofwater.com in the meantime.

I've sent a help ticket into the people that run the server.

Thanks for telling me!! I owe you one.

I think that Michael Palin is going to make a damned fine Vice President. He's just gotta ditch the dress, heels and glasses.

Maybe John Cleese can be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. I'd pay good money to see that...

Why is it that absurd fantasy sounds so much better than tragic possible reality?

Thud said...

I think pythons lumderjack song may be more fitting!...I love both Palins.
