Quote of the Day
'The time has come,' the walrus said, 'to talk of many things: of shoes and ships - and sealing wax - of cabbages and kings.'
Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive.
Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand.
Live-tweeting your bikini wax is not vulnerability. Nor is posting a blow-by-blow of your divorce . That's an attempt to hot-wire connection. But you can't cheat real connection. It's built up slowly. It's about trust and time.
A sense is what has the power of receiving into itself the sensible forms of things without the matter, in the way in which a piece of wax takes on the impress of a signet-ring without the iron or gold.
Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.
We must no more ask whether the soul and body are one than ask whether the wax and the figure impressed on it are one.
There's a statue of Jimmy Stewart in the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the statue talks better than he does.
American consumers have no problem with carcinogens, but they will not purchase any product, including floor wax, that has fat in it.
Colloquial poetry is to the real art as the barber's wax dummy is to sculpture.
I can install toilets. I know all about the wax ring. I can tile floors. I'm learning how to do basic wiring.

Be able to blow out a dinner candle without sending wax flying across the table.
Marilyn vos Savant
When I was a child, I had wax in my ears. Dad didn't take me to the doctor, he used me as a night light.
Populism has had as many incarnations as it has had provocations, but its constant ingredient has been resentment, and hence whininess. Populism does not wax in tranquil times; it is a cathartic response to serious problems. But it always wanes because it never seems serious as a solution.
Barack Obama is not Harry Truman, who dropped the A-bomb on Japan to stop World War II. Barack Obama is not John F. Kennedy, who lowered marginal tax rates to get economic growth and job creation. Barack Obama and the far left, they are a completely different ball of wax.
I'm one of those low-maintenance people - let's get it done and get going. It's not that painful to wax, but... I don't have time for it - just give me the razor.

The CD is now the wax album and so it is a collector's item for people who collect music and love to look at the liner notes and feel paper. I don't know what would turn them on about having to go through that terrible exercise of trying to open the packaging - it's unbelievable when you're trying to open a CD, right? You need a box cutter .

I took all my wax studies and threw them in the fire... that's the way it is when something unpleasant happens to me. I take my hammer and I squash a figure.
