Rest in peace, my bulky sig. Great song, though, too bad it was banned from the radio.

Wow, not many people have posted here lately. I am now putting to rest the quote that I mentioned just a few replies ago:
"I'm against all 'it's me's'. It's so self-absorbed and egotistical, like those hip musicians with their complicated shoes."
-George Costanza
I now have another Seinfeld quote down there, from what my brother says is the funniest episode ever. He nicknamed it "Man-Hands".

Shortly before signatures longer than 2 lines were not allowed, I had added to more quotes to my sig to extend the meet & greet theme. So for a few days it looked like this:

Elen sla lmenn’ omentielvo, a star shines on the hour of our meeting.

"My mother told me to give a cheery greeting to everyone I meet. And to take a ring from a good lady if the occasion arose." - Parzival: The Quest of the Grail Knight retold by Katherine Paterson

ZAPHOD: Oh God...Ford. This is Trillian, hi, Trillian, this is my semi-cousin Ford, who shares three of the same mothers as me, hi. Trillian, is this sort of thing going to happen every time we use the Infinite Improbability Drive?
TRILLIAN: Very probably I'm afraid.
ZAPHOD: Zaphod Beeblebrox, this is a very large drink. Hi.

P.S. My avatar is Parzival/Parsifal/Peredur/Perceval in honour of Viggo Mortensen's publishing company.

Ive changed mine about 3 times, but my favourite is;

Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life!

from Jingo by Terry Pratchett.

Im reading Romeo and Juliet at the moment, thus I have my current sig.

Here's some of mine:

D. Adams' "The Ultimate Hitch-hiker's Guide"
Quote:
Smart is sexy
Actually Jennifer Aniston said that..
Quote:
This is an important announcement. This is flight 121 to Los Angeles. If your travel plans today do not include Los Angeles, now would be a perfect time to disembark.

Oh yeah, I suppose I can lay to rest my Thomas Mann quote here:

"For you know that we poets cannot walk the way of beauty without Eros as our companion and guide."

It's self-explanatory, if you know me at all, and know who Eros is. This is the quote I use to justify almost all the "youthful indescretions" in the world. Try it on your mother next time you come home after dawn.

How did you get that? I didn't post it. Clearly I'm being spied upon, and I'm most upset. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

This forum is themed around a graveyard. What else would my signatures be about but death? Actually I mainly choose them for their poetic qualities.

My first sig was from the Wizard of Oz:

Quote:
She's not just merely dead, she's really most sincerely dead.
I was reading a newspaper article which mentioned it, and I thought it fit perfectly for the dead theme on the Downs. But then I watch WoZ again recently and realized just how annoying, cloying and insipid the whole munchkin land is (it's certainly no Shire and those paint-by-number midgets are no Hobbits!)

Second sig, a quote by Faramir:

Quote:
We look towards Nmenor that was, and beyond to Elvenhome that is, and to that which is beyond Elvenhome and will ever be.
I may go back to that because I love it immensely, but I changed it for Christmas. I may as well post my current sig since it will be changing after Christmas:

Quote:
Under that bed there runs a flood, the bells of Paradise I heard them ring.
The one half runs water the other runs blood, and I love my Lord Jesus above anything.
That is a verse from "Down in Yon Forest", a Christmas song.

Memory trolls for submerged words. Here are the two quotations I have used at the BarrowDowns:

I went looking for the garden of my mother and lo! I found my own.

Never speak to women/Unless you speak of flowers
illustrate your garden/and walk with them past fountains
but never let them carry your secrets/they are lapses


The first I found on a stone plague in a garden centre; the second is from Jane Urquhart, Some Other Garden.

The more I looked at this sig, the more stupid it seemed, so I've decided to change it at last.

I like your new one, Dragoneyes:

Quote:
'Hm, tired? No, I am not tired. I do not easily get tired. And I do not sit down. I am not very, hm, bendable.' - Treebeard
I changed mine, a little. It is still "The higher you build your barriers, the taller I become. The more you refuse to hear my voice, the louder I will sing," except it is in Spanish.

I can't seem to make up my mind when it comes to sigs. I always change mine.

This very short-lived sig was doomed to be brief, as I wrote it in a fey mood and was annoyed by it ever since:

Quote:
Delight in the dance of the dying duck and weep,
Or may a thousand electric eels devour you in your sleep.
It's fun and quirky the first time around, but not when one has to read it every time she posts...

Rest In Peace.

Both of those quotations are absolutely brilliant. I especially like Macchiavelli there. Most apposite for some threads.

Here I lay to rest my most treasured sig quote:

1. "But this story [the gospel] is supreme; and it is true. Art has been verified. God is the Lord, of angels and of men, and of elves. Legend and History have met and fused." --J.R.R. Tolkien [On Fairy Stories]

BTW: I might revive it someday...

I am bidding a fond farewell to my writing quote in light of a more... optimistic signature.
Quote:
"...words are the only true power. The wisest monarchs know this, the foolish and the cowardly fear it. The gods respect it, but they, too, are not immune to the sting of a bitter truth well told."
And so I lay thee to rest.

Ok, since I just recently changed my sig, I'm gonna put the old one here, too.

" We are not always what we seem and hardly ever what we dream."

It was from the Last Unicorn, one of Schmendrick's lines, of course... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
