Years ago, I picked up figure skating. How hard could spins and jumps be, I thought? It's just applied Newtonian physics.

What people fear most about tragedy is its randomness - a taxi cab jumps the curb and hits a pedestrian, a gun misfires and kills a bystander.

When an office-holder facing a multi-count indictment says that he has decided to spend more time with his family, the proper response is a horse-laugh.

Alfred North Whitehead
When one jumps over the edge, one is bound to land somewhere.
D. H. Lawrence
Men have a psychological need to show off their courage and strength. When he sees you talking to another guy, that instinct kicks in and he jumps to protect you and prove he's worthy of your love.
