Quote of the Day
The harsh truth is, most red-haired men look like blondes who've spoiled from lack of refrigeration. They look like brown-haired men who've been composted out behind the barn. Yet that same pigmentation that on a man can resemble leaf mold or junkyard rust, a woman wears like a tiara of rubies.
Any jackass can kick down a barn, but it takes a good carpenter to build one.
My father kept me busy from dawn to dusk when I was a kid. When I wasn't pitching hay, hauling corn or running a tractor, I was heaving a baseball into his mitt behind the barn... If all the parents in the country followed his rule, juvenile delinquency would be cut in half in a year's time.
Do not let a flattering woman coax and wheedle you and deceive you; she is after your barn.
I was so naive as a kid I used to sneak behind the barn and do nothing.
If a farmer fills his barn with grain, he gets mice. If he leaves it empty, he gets actors.
A little and a little, collected together, becomes a great deal; the heap in the barn consists of single grains, and drop and drop make the inundation.
Cars let us out of the barn and, while they were at it, destroyed the American nuclear family. As anyone who has had an American nuclear family can tell you, this was a relief to all concerned.
P. J. O'Rourke
We don't see a lot of models for male social interaction. There's sports and barn raisings.
The moon is brighter since the barn burned.
If someone as blessed as I am is not willing to clean out the barn, who will?
Mommy smoked but she didn't want us to. She saw smoke coming out of the barn one time, so we got whipped.
Having been let out of the barn once, I know I wouldn't be happy if I were home all the time.
A jackass can kick a barn down, but it takes a carpenter to build one.
When you are new at sheep-raising and your ewe has a lamb, your impulse is to stay there and help it nurse and see to it and all. After a while, you know that the best thing you can do is walk out of the barn.
A farmer travelling with his load Picked up a horseshoe on the road, And nailed if fast to his barn door, That luck might down upon him pour; That every blessing known in life Might crown his homestead and his wife, And never any kind of harm Descend upon his growing farm.
James Thomas Fields
When I do entertain, in the summer, which is rare, I receive my guests on the front porch, set up wicker trays found at Pottery Barn, and serve iced beverages. Anytime I do welcome friends, it's always a tray of canapes or Planters peanuts, jellied candy from Paris, and a good bottle of Sancerre.
Andre Leon Talley
I see this fella built like a barn door... and there's all these fox hunters, who didn't like me, screaming and shouting and as I walked past him I looked at him and he hit me with something.

I want people to be excited about cooling towers and megasheds; they're as much part of our history as the rural barn.
This mug of mine is as plain as a barn door. Why should people pay 35 cents to look at it?
I really wanted to find a piano for the farm house. There were so many free pianos on Craigslist, I thought, 'Let's get as many free pianos as we can and stick them all in the barn.' I got eight in a short period of time, only six of which were tunable, but it's still quite funny.
