RE: Great quotes
" Listen to me, a two legged creature will
believe anything and the more preposterous the better:
whales speak French at the bottom of the sea. The
horses of Arabia have silver wings. Pygmies mate with
elephants in darkest Africa. I have sold all those
propositions."

Mr. Merriweather, Little Big Man

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

--Jake the Dog, Adventure Time
