    I didn't like that movie at all. Seemed like it went way too slow... sort of like Lord Of The Rings.

    A good quote is from Maynard James Keenan.

    "Today's woman puts on wigs, fake eyelashes, false fingernails, sixteen pounds of assorted make-up/shadows/blushes/creams, living bras, various pads that would make a linebacker envious, has implants and assorted other surgeries, then complains that she cannot find a "real" man."

    However one of my fav's has to be:

    "Eat well, stay fit, die anyway."

    or this one from Robin Williams....

    "Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet."

    "Women, they make the highs higher and the lows more frequent."
    -Friedrich Nietzsche

    "I am responsible for everything ... except for my very responsibility, for I am not the foundation of my being. Therefore everything takes place as if I were compelled to be responsible. I am abandoned in the world ... in the sense that I find myself suddenly alone and without help, engaged in a world for which I bear the whole responsibility without being able, whatever I do, to tear myself away from this responsibility for an instant."
    - Sartre

    "The undisturbed mind is like the calm body water reflecting the brilliance of the moon. Empty the mind and you will realize the undisturbed mind."
    -Yagyu Jubei

    "The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world."
    -Lao Tzu

    Good stuff, isn't it?
