"'Resting. My ambition is handicapped by laziness.'"

"She'd trot off to the bathroom, happy as a bird, clean herself, poop, look at the hair under her arms, look in the mirror, worry more about age than death, then trot and get between the sheets again..."

"Sexual intercourse is kicking death in the ass while singing."

"Dripping faucets, farts of passion, flat tires - are all sadder than death."
