Masked Man

“I got the bill for my surgery. Now I know what those doctors were wearing masks for.”  James H. Boren

Alfred Hitchcock

From that wonder fountain of suspense fiction comes this little mystery gem. Plot pursuers take note: there’s nothing like a good way to dispose of the body.

“There is nothing quite so good as burial at sea. It is simple, tidy, and not very incriminating.” Alfred Hitchcock (English Film Director, 1899 – 1980)

Night Assaults

One of my favorite quotes. If only it could be taken to heart.

“Once in cabinet we had to deal with the fact that there had been an outbreak of assaults on women at night.  One minister …suggested a curfew;  women should stay home after dark.  I said, “But it’s the men who are attacking the women.  If there’s to be a curfew, let the men stay at home, not the women…”  –  Israeli Prime Minister, Golda Meir

Quote Umberto Eco

“I felt like poisoning a monk.”  –  Umberto Eco, on why he wrote the novel ‘The Name of the Rose’.
