Some Mae West quotes:

When women go wrong, men go right after them.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough
Good sex is like good bridge. If you don’t have a good partner, you’d better have a good hand.
Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.
When I’m good, I’m very good, but when I’m bad, I’m better.
It isn’t what I do, but how I do it. It isn’t what I say, but how I say it, and how I look when I do it and say it.
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.

Existential Cartoons?

I’m a big fan of quotations. I also like cartoons. I believe in randomness. Put all three together and you have the design for a number of websites.

One is The Nietzsche Family Circus which pairs a randomized Family Circus cartoon with a randomized Friedrich Nietzsche quote. Doesn’t sound like it would work, but it does.



The best weapon against an enemy is another enemy.

And if you gaze for long into an abyss,
the abyss gazes also into you.

If a combination comes up that you like, you can copy the permalink to it to pass on.

Another site is Garfield Minus Garfield which is just that - Garfield comics with no Garfield or his words.

It is self-described as “a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.”

It has the approval of Garfield creator Jim Davis. Why not? He got another book out of it .
