It's getting so that children have to be educated to realize that Damn and Taxes: are two separate words.
Just like the Alamo, somebody damn well needed to go to their aid.
Well, by God, I'm going to Viet Nam's aid!
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.
Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-God damn it, you've got to be kind.
The robot is going to lose. Not by much. But when the final score is tallied, flesh and blood is going to beat the damn monster.
Though by whim, envy, or resentment led, they damn those authors whom they never read.
I hate facts. I always say the chief end of man is to form general propositions -- adding that no general proposition is worth a damn.
Be careful -- with quotations, you can damn anything.
In this country, don't forget, a habit is no damn private hell.
There's no solitary confinement outside of jail. A habit is hell for those you love. And in this country it's the worst kind of hell for those who love you.
The man who is always worrying whether or not his soul would be damned generally has a soul that isn't worth a damn.
Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!
I don't give a damn about the stock market. But I do care about jobs.
They changed the floor back to old school.
They changed the uniform back to old school. Somebody tell the damn players to start playing like old school.
I don't give a damn about Hollywood.
Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.
That's the trouble with being me. At this point, nobody gives a damn what my problem is. I could literally have a tumor on the side of my head and they'd be like, 'Yeah, big deal. I'd eat a tumor every morning for the kinda money you're pulling down.'
Well, if you find a note tonight that sounds good, play the same damn note every night!
Fourth Law of Thermodynamics: If the probability of success is not almost one, then it is damn near zero.
Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of bar-room vernacular, that is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed but attentive.
We love kitties, gawd bless their little whiskers, and we don't give a damn whether they or we are superior or inferior! They're confounded pretty, and that's all we know and all we need to know!
Today's comedian has a cross to bear that he built himself.
A comedian of the older generation did an act and he told the audience, This is my act. Today's comic is not doing an act. The audience assumes he's telling the truth. What is truth today may be a damn lie next week.
We cannot cheat on DNA. We cannot get round photosynthesis. We cannot say I am not going to give a damn about phytoplankton. All these tiny mechanisms provide the preconditions of our planetary life. To say we do not care is to say in the most literal sense that we choose death.
It's a damn shame we have this immediate ticking off in the mind about how people sound. On the other hand, how many people really want to be operated upon by a surgeon who talks broad cockney?
All virtues come down to courage, at the sharp end of the sword.
But courage must be tempered by prudence. Courage wasted by misdirection is the most heart-breaking of all tragedies. If there is an eighth deadly sin, it ought to be stupidity, by which all virtues run out into dry sands. Yet...where does prudence end and cowardice begin? That's a very good damn question!
Geez, if I could get through to you, kiddo, that depression is not sobbing and crying and giving vent, it is plain and simple reduction of feeling. Reduction, see? Of all feeling. People who keep stiff upper lips find that it's damn hard to smile.
