Had the same quote in my sig for a year now, perhaps time for a change, even though it was one of my favourite quotes, said by one of my more odd friends..
"I listen to the voices inside my head, so please speak up"

Had to go though, Douglas Adams is, after all, Douglas Adams. The genius. =)

Silmaril

And here I lay to rest possibly my shortest sig, duration-wise:

Quote:
The whole house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume
But then, it was only meant to be a temporary, Easter style siggy. And along comes my new one, which is from the book I am currently reading: The Plague Dogs, by Richard Adams. Brilliant book, though maybe a little grisly. Snitter, the character who sings this little ditty, is a brilliant character: utterly mad, but all the better for it...

Quote:
The whitecoats painted a mouse bright blue, and stuffed his ears with sneezing glue.
They shone a biscuit in his eye, to see what lay beyond the sky.
The mouse he knew not what he did, he blew them up with a saucepan lid...

Didn't last very long, but another random quote laid to rest:
Quote:
"Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

These line in particular resonated deeply with me when I read Arnold's "To Marguerite", but I've decided that at last it is time to exchange it for a more contemporary (though no less pertinent to my own inclinations) quotation.

I realized I haven't laid my old sig to rest:

Imi elyŽ na vanessŽ Ambaron ya QualmŽ nye i Lindir carnŽ.
Menelnya ontanŽ sinomŽ
A laven auta


It's Elvish (Quenya) for:

Sinussa maailman kauneus
Josta kuolema teki minusta taiteilijan
Oman taivaan tšnne loin
Anna minun pššstš pois

which is Finnish for:

In you is the beauty of the world, of which death made me an artist
My own heaven I created here
Let me get away

Hope I confused you all.
Lyrics by Nightwish, Quenya translation by yours truly. Someone said on this forum (apologies for not remembering exactly who at this moment!) that this song reminds one of LOTR, despite no obvious reference. I agree...

I lay to rest the short-lived, but no less beloved, The Boondock Saints quote:

Quote:
Now you will receive us. We do not ask for your poor, or for your hungry. We donít want your tired and sick. It is your corrupt we claim...
But since I fell in love with The Pax Cecilia (google it, foo ) this winter, I've been waiting to use their lines for signatures. So now I have a piece of the segment that goes thus:

"i stole my inspiration from a lonely ghost road, someday this curse will catch up with me. and someday i will fit my memiors in the palm of your hand. meredith, meredith, someday you will fit my memiors in the palm of your hand, and they will accompany you as you give up hope. and meredith, all my life you'll be humming lullabies into my ear in such a disjointed and quivering melody, and on my deathbed you'll be screaming repentance to the rhythm of my slowing heartbeat. god, i have never known a thought so lovely."

My new one is from the same band, but instead comes from the song MDCCLXXV. Or was it The Crux Candide? Crazy CD intertwines tracks almost flawlessly.

It is no longer appropriate to be after impressing young women, so my former quote should be laid to rest from now on:

Quote:
Poetry is like hermits - No point freezing your nadgers off while communing with the Infinite unless you could rely on a lot of impressionable young women to come along occasionally and say Gosh
It was fun, but now is over. We move to new horizons with Mark 10:8

I realized that for a while now I've only been quoting songs in my sigs, and keeping them a relatively short time.

Here comes a candle to light you to bed and here comes the chopper to chop off your head...

It's from an old nursery rhyme and a children's game called Oranges and Lemons.

Fun to play and appeals to the more gruesome side of a child's personality.

"...who's got their claws in you, my friend,
into your heart I'll beat again." Crash (DMB)
Tol-in-Gauroth


This lyric from Dave Mathews Band, Crash I found to be quite fitting. Most obvious the 'claw part', as in wolves; the 'my friend' because I was innocent and concerned for other innocents.
The 'into your heart, I'll beat again' because I was the seer and after my death all would be looking back to all that I said and therefore I would 'live' again.

Lyrics from (if you'll pardon the disagreeable repetition) 'From the Dionysian Days' - by Therion. I love this song. The world still has need of Arcady.

My new one is very tongue in cheek but I can't be held responsible for it, oh no. Blame Mr Ezra Pound. I intend to keep it for a longer while *crosses fingers*

I hate Math and anything that reminds me of it, so I'll get rid of this:

To learn, sometimes we must unlearn.
It's actually a lesson I learned to make my Math class less of a torture chamber than it actually is.

They shone a biscuit through his eye, to see what lay beyond the sky,
The mouse he knew not what he did, he blew them all up with a saucepan lid...
Wonderfully weird: a quote from Snitter, one of the main characters in Richard Adams' 'The Plague Dogs', one of my favourite books. I liked that siggy very much, but hey, time to move on...
