The complete quote, for as far as I know:<br><br>Some scientist claim the hydrogen, because it is so plentifull,<br>is the basic building block of the universe.<br>I dispute that.<br>I say there is more studpidity then hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.<br><br>And this is also a very nice one:<br><br>Information is not knowledge<br>Knowledge is not wisdom<br>Wisdom is not thruth<br>Thruth is not beauty<br>Beauty is not love<br>Love is not music. Music is the best.

"Without deviation from the norm, 'progress' is not possible."<br><br>it isn't funny or so, but it is very very true.<br>(& it didn't fit in the space at the right in its original form)

there are lots of good ones out there. some of my favourites (that haven't already been mentioned) are<br><br>"art is making something out of nothing then selling it"<br><br>"the united states is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced"<br><br>"communism doesnt work because people like to own stuff"<br><br>"people don't appreciate excelence because they are so used to exaulting the achievments of the mediocre"<br><br>"Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mediocre educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and educate yourself if you've got any guts. Some of you like pep rallies and plastic robots who tell you what to read."<br><br>"One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people's minds."<br><br>"Without deviation progress is not possible."<br><br>"The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows."

Rock journalism:  People who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read.<br><br>Music is the best.<br><br>Paraphrasing from an interview with Jane Pauley on the NBC Today show; they had shown a clip from Video From Hell wherein FZ was playing the guitar and Jane commented something like . . . Well we just saw you on stage playing the guitar and that isn't exactly what most people would think of as Father Knows Best (an old American TV program where dad was a real swell guy).  FZ responded:  Let me tell you something.  I just came from a country called Spain.  In that wonderful country, people think it's a good thing if you play the guitar; people respect you because you play a guitar.  Then I come to America and I get questions like you just asked, "How could he possibly be a good father when he plays the guitar?"<br><br>At the ASUC convention, after dissing the organization and their beliefs: And is that weren't bad enough, I make a living by playing the electric guitar.<br><br>It is my contention that every member of this band owes me a cheeseburger.<br><br>And turn up those goddamn handclaps!<br><br>I tell them to stop, shut up, and do exactly what I'm telling you.<br><br>Air sculpture.<br><br>Here's a special beer for sports; in paper cups that hold two quarts.<br><br>Better look around before you say you don't care; shut your fucking mouth about the length of my hair.<br><br>There will come a time where you won't even be ashamed if you are fat.<br><br>The influence of the frozen beef pie.<br><br>Shut up n play yer guitar.<br><br>How about that chord that Ray played?<br><br>And how many yous nice people believe that the gubmint be totally unconsouwned about de prooliforation uh undesirable tenents in the condominium er life.<br><br>Jesus thinks you're a jerk.<br><br>Captain Beefheart on vocals, soprano sax, and madness.<br><br>I don't wanna know about the things that you pull out of your nose, or where they goes.  But if you are wasted from the stuff you're sticking in then I get madder everyday 'cause what you do and what you say affects my life in such a way . . . I learn to hate it every minute.<br><br>And in case you've forgotten: Music is the best.<br><br>VCF<br>
