You eventually come to the conclusion that there's only so much you can do with these established characters, and you start wondering who among us will be the one to create the next 'Superman' or 'Batman' or 'James Bond' or next 'Lone Ranger.'Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: You eventually come to the conclusion that there's only so much you can do with
Mrs Smiling's character was firm and her tastes civilized. Her method of dealing with wayward human nature when it insisted on obtruding its grossness upon her scheme of life was short and effective; she pretended things were not so: and usually, after a time, they were not. Christian Science is perhaps a larger organization, but seldom so successful.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: Mrs Smiling's character was firm and her tastes civilized. Her method of dealing with wayward
While she lay there with these old worn thoughts coming obediently into her mind, called there by habit and the familiar quiet of early morning, she was aware that at the back of her mind there was another thought that was not at all stale, but so fresh that it was nearly a feeling, with all a feeling's delicious power to kill thought.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: While she lay there with these old worn thoughts coming obediently into her mind, called

One of the disadvantages of almost universal education was the fact that all kinds of persons acquired a familiarity with one's favorite writers. It gave one a curious feeling; it was like seeing a drunken stranger wrapped in one's dressing gown.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: One of the disadvantages of almost universal education was the fact that all kinds of
Twice, in half an hour, Hetty had held up Miss Barlow's plans, and prevented her from moving as quickly as possible on to the next pleasure. Miss Barlow liked her life to be a steady movement towards pleasure.

Who cared, anyway?Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: No one had seen anything of Urk since he had gone galloping out into the
Gene Tunney called Gibbons 'the perfect boxer.' Gene said he learned more about the technique of boxing and punching from watching Mike training in New York gymnasiums and in actual fights in Gotham than he learned from any other individual associated with the fistic sport.
Moreover, Tunney has told me it was Gibbons' clean-cut victory over Jack Dillon, the mighty light heavyweight from Indianapolis, that inspired in him the belief he could whip Jack Dempsey.
George Aaron Barton Gibbons's Sayings By George Aaron Barton: Gene Tunney called Gibbons 'the perfect boxer.' Gene said he learned more about the technique
Most of the time when I have met artists who have meant a lot to me, the experience has been well above expectation. People like Iggy, Lou Reed, Jerry Lee Lewis, Black Sabbath, Nick Cave, Hubert Selby Jr, Billy Gibbons, Al Pacino, John Lee Hooker, James Brown, Johnny Cash etc. have been really great to me. What strikes me is most of the time, the bigger the celeb/legend, the more polite and cool they are. It's the insecure ones who treat you like they're doing you a favor by shaking your hand.Henry Rollins Gibbons's Sayings By Henry Rollins: Most of the time when I have met artists who have meant a lot to
During the sixteen years I served as the secretary to the First Presidency, I attended hundreds of meetings where President Hunter was in attendance. In the course of these meetings, President Hunter's voice was heard less frequently than almost any other. That is quite amazing when one considers the popular perception of lawyers as being verbose, but it is not to suggest that he sat mute in these meetings. He was always actively involved; however, he did not feel the need to be heard on every subject under discussion. When he did speak, what he said was thoughtful and analytical.Francis M. Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Francis M. Gibbons: During the sixteen years I served as the secretary to the First Presidency, I attended

I generally like very visually striking films. I love a lot of Stanley Kubrick's films. I would have to say 'Dr. Strangelove', which of course has got resonance in 'Watchmen'. It's a favorite movie of mine.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: I generally like very visually striking films. I love a lot of Stanley Kubrick's films.
The original series of Watchmen is the complete story that Alan Moore and I wanted to tell. However, I appreciate DC's reasons for this initiative and the wish of the artists and writers involved to pay tribute to our work. May these new additions have the success they desire.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: The original series of Watchmen is the complete story that Alan Moore and I wanted
Persons of Aunt Ada's temperament were not fond of a tidy life. Storms were what they liked; plenty of rows, and doors being slammed, and jaws sticking out, and faces white with fury, and faces brooding in corners, and faces making unnecessary fuss at breakfast, and plenty of opportunities for gorgeous emotional wallowings, and partings for ever, and misunderstandings, and interferings, and spyings, and, above all, managing and intriguing. Oh, they did enjoy themselves! They were the sort that went trampling all over your pet stamp collection, or whatever it was, and then spent the rest of their lives atoning for it. But you would rather have had your stamp collection.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: Persons of Aunt Ada's temperament were not fond of a tidy life. Storms were what

My favorite book of all time is Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons.Meg Cabot Gibbons's Sayings By Meg Cabot: My favorite book of all time is Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons.
That's all my grandfather was guilty of, fear, faith in his words, but that was a high crime in her eyes. That's all Jack was guilty of that day, but I've lived with him a good while and I believe I understand him. Sometimes it might take an afternoon or evening of being here in this kitchen alone, thinking, but I can usually come to see his reasons through his ways. And half the job of finding peace is finding understanding. Don't you believe it to be so?Kaye Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Kaye Gibbons: That's all my grandfather was guilty of, fear, faith in his words, but that was
I thought I had a clear picture of death, but now I know it's a mystery and it will always be a mystery, although it is something we all have in common: everybody knows that life ends with death.Beth Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Beth Gibbons: I thought I had a clear picture of death, but now I know it's a
When I first came to New York City, what I was thrilled about was not the Empire State Building, or the Statue of Liberty; it was the fireplugs in the street. These things that Jack Kirby had drawn. Or these cylindrical water towers on top of buildings that Steve Ditko's 'Spider-Man' fights used to happen in and around.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: When I first came to New York City, what I was thrilled about was not
One of the things when you're drawing a comic book is that you're spending four or five times as long to draw it as the writer takes to write it. In my career I've had to spend a week drawing something that a writer has thrown out in an hour. And there's nothing worse than having to work on something that no previous thought has gone into.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: One of the things when you're drawing a comic book is that you're spending four

Women are all alike
aye fussin' over their fal-lals and bedazin' a man's eyes, when all they really want is man's blood and his heart out of his body and his soul and his pride ...
Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: Women are all alike aye fussin' over their fal-lals and bedazin' a man's eyes, when
I think it's degrading of you, Flora,' cried Mrs Smiling at breakfast. 'Do you truly mean that you don't ever want to work at anything?'
Her friend replied after some thought: 'Well, when I am fifty-three or so I would like to write a novel as good as "Persuasion", but with a modern setting, of course. For the next thirty years or so I shall be collecting material for it. If anyone asks me what I work at, I shall say "Collecting material." No one can object to that. Besides, I shall be.'
Mrs Smiling drank some coffee in silent disapproval.
'If you ask me,' continued Flora, 'I think I have much in common with Miss Austen. She liked everything to be tidy and pleasant and comfortable around her, and so do I. You see Mary,' - and here Flora began to grow earnest and to wave one finger about - 'unless everything is tidy and pleasant and comfortable all about one, people cannot even begin to enjoy life. I cannot endure messes.
Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: I think it's degrading of you, Flora,' cried Mrs Smiling at breakfast. 'Do you truly
Dear, Missus, Mister - I beg you never to give thoughts to war, in no way, not to work for it, not by writing nor by reading about it nor by looking at the pictures nor on the television about it. Not in any way ever, at all. Not by being a soldier, sailor, airman, work in factory or above all at atom bombs. Above all at atom bombs. No obligation for this, dear fellow creature. Signed Your Fellow Creature.'
'P.S.,' said Gerald slowly, without turning from the window, 'If we all do this, we shall succeed.
Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: Dear, Missus, Mister - I beg you never to give thoughts to war, in no
Behaviorism was a busted flush, but neo-behaviorist theories, especially choice architecture, achieve behavioral change without coercion or the downsides of carrots and sticks.Paul Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Paul Gibbons: Behaviorism was a busted flush, but neo-behaviorist theories, especially choice architecture, achieve behavioral change without
When I was around 7 or 8 my Dad took me to a B.B. King recording session, well, that really did it. Huge and lasting impressions. After all that I pretty much knew playing guitar was something I was going to do because I just had to do it.

There were no exceptions for the aged, the ill, the women in pregnancy.Herbert Adams Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Herbert Adams Gibbons: There were no exceptions for the aged, the ill, the women in pregnancy.
I envision my mind as a plot of grass full of sheep surrounded by a perimeter of electric fence. If I'm not constantly vigilant and aware of my thoughts, the electric fence shuts off, the sheep jump out, and my panic gets away from me. The chance for an attack is especially bad just before bed or when I'm distracted or lost in thought in the car, causing me to slap myself in the face as hard as I can or bite the inside of my upper arm. If I can feel the pain, then I am still alive and can begin to focus on rounding up the sheep again. See? This makes perfect sense in my head.Brittany Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Brittany Gibbons: I envision my mind as a plot of grass full of sheep surrounded by a

And when April like an over-lustful lover leaped upon the lush flanks of the Downs there would be yet another child in the wretched hut down on Nettle Flitch Field, where Meriam housed the fruits of her shame.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: And when April like an over-lustful lover leaped upon the lush flanks of the Downs
On the whole, Flora liked it better when they were silent, though it did rather give her the feeling that she was acting in one of the less cheerful German highbrow films.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: On the whole, Flora liked it better when they were silent, though it did rather
Peter Gibbons: The thing is, Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.
Bob Porter: Don't... don't care?
Peter Gibbons: It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime; so where's the motivation? And here's something else, Bob: I have eight different bosses right now.
Bob Slydell: I beg your pardon?
Peter Gibbons: Eight bosses.
Bob Slydell: Eight?
Peter Gibbons: Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That's my only real motivation is not to be hassled; that, and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired.
Mike Judge Gibbons's Sayings By Mike Judge: Peter Gibbons: The thing is, Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just
The kind of crabbing my wife likes to do is to return from an afternoon's swim or sunbathing session, open the refrigerator door, and find a generous plate of crab cakes all ready to cook.Euell Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Euell Gibbons: The kind of crabbing my wife likes to do is to return from an afternoon's

Gibbons wondered vaguely if he was becoming a morphine addict. He had certainly dosed himself into a stupid on account of the hideous pain resulting from the nurse's insistence that he get up and sit in a chair. He rather thought that being a drug addict would interfere with his career as a police detective, but that didn't seem to matter as much as it had a little while ago.Cassandra Chan Gibbons's Sayings By Cassandra Chan: Gibbons wondered vaguely if he was becoming a morphine addict. He had certainly dosed himself

The rawness and the richness of music on vinyl almost went away, but it still seems to be on a lot of people's radar, and for good reason. It does something different than more accessible means of music playing, like MP3 players and downloads and whatnot. You get in front of these archaic contraptions that go 'round and 'round.Billy Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Billy Gibbons: The rawness and the richness of music on vinyl almost went away, but it still
You'll find your one-in-a-million. But you're sharp enough to know there's no point in sludging through the first nine hundred, ninety-nine thousand, and ninety-nine to get to him.Kaye Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Kaye Gibbons: You'll find your one-in-a-million. But you're sharp enough to know there's no point in sludging
The way we get to live forever is through memories stored in the hearts and souls of those whose lives we touch. That's our soul print. It's our comfort, our emotional nourishment at the end of the day and the end of a life. How wonderful that they are called up at will and savored randomly. It seems to me we should spend our lives in a conscious state of creating these meaningful moments that live on. Memories matter.Leeza Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Leeza Gibbons: The way we get to live forever is through memories stored in the hearts and
She could feel magic in the quiet spring day, like a sorcerer's far-off voice, and lines of poetry floated over her mind as if they were strands of spider-web.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: She could feel magic in the quiet spring day, like a sorcerer's far-off voice, and

First things first, I'm going to tell you why I'm fat, because I actually get this question a lot, much in the way people are asked how they got into live-action role playing or funeral home cosmetology. The answer I'd like to give to people who ask me that question is that God made us all different, and she made some people round-shaped, like me, and some people asshole-shaped, like you. Too direct? Fine, here's the deal.

Most kids inherit their best qualities from their parents. I inherited mental illness and fat thighs. Oh, and astigmatism and course body hair.

I think the problem with the term graphic novel is it sounds pompous, it sounds pretentious, whereas on the continent, they call it an album, which to me sounds, it's got more much of a connotation of a kind of a music single and an album collection.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: I think the problem with the term graphic novel is it sounds pompous, it sounds
All the same, I don't mean nothin' you wouldn't like yer mas to know about, see? That's straight, that is.

Tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals [in Hollywood should] ... go make their movies and their music and whine somewhere else ...

In closing, I hope everything helps show that I wouldn't be a fade-out or a person who turns to think to drink or dope when things get tough. I believe that anything is possible if you have the combination of love for what you're doing and the will to sit down and not get up until it's done ... .Kaye Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Kaye Gibbons: In closing, I hope everything helps show that I wouldn't be a fade-out or a
Oh, it's no crime to want and need somebody to love and to be loved by and to go and do what you need to do to have that, but its certainly a pity when you want it so badly you'll let it be anybody.Kaye Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Kaye Gibbons: Oh, it's no crime to want and need somebody to love and to be loved
It's a real uphill challenge to battle the white-guyness.Billy Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Billy Gibbons: It's a real uphill challenge to battle the white-guyness.
Instead, I realized that people are allowed to say whatever they want to me about my weight, but it's entirely up to me how much power I let those words have over me. I'm not obligated or required to accept negative commentary about my looks. I'm not less confident or honest for ignoring that it's there. I'm just confident enough to know it's not true.Brittany Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Brittany Gibbons: Instead, I realized that people are allowed to say whatever they want to me about

His young man's limbs, sleek in their dark male pride, seemed to disdain the covering offered them by the brief shorts and striped jersey. His body might have been naked, like his full, muscled throat, which rose, round and proud as the male organ of a flower, from the neck of his sweater.Stella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: His young man's limbs, sleek in their dark male pride, seemed to disdain the covering
The cows in Stella Gibbons's immortal 'Cold Comfort Farm' are named Graceless, Aimless, Feckless and Pointless, and that more or less is the verdict on 'Ocean's Kingdom,' the wildly hyped and wildly uninteresting collaboration between Peter Martins and Paul McCartney.Robert Gottlieb Gibbons's Sayings By Robert Gottlieb: The cows in Stella Gibbons's immortal 'Cold Comfort Farm' are named Graceless, Aimless, Feckless and

Claud twisted the television dial and amused himself by studying Flora's fair, pensive face. Her eyes were lowered and her mouth compressed over the serious business of arranging Elfine's future. He fancied she was tracing a pattern with the tip of her shoe. She could not look at him, because public telephones were not fitted with television dials. 'Oh, yes, we certainly don'tStella Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Stella Gibbons: Claud twisted the television dial and amused himself by studying Flora's fair, pensive face. Her
I think if you want to do a thing properly you have to take a lot of care. I've always found it's easier to draw comics if you know clearly in your head what you're drawing, rather than if you try and make it up as you go along.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: I think if you want to do a thing properly you have to take a
I stopped glorifying women as beautiful only if they were also thin. In fact, beautiful was the very last thing I decided I would tell Gigi she was each day, after brilliant, hilarious, curious, creative, and daring. There are so many important things to be in this world, it's unfair to devote so much of what describes us to our body size.Brittany Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Brittany Gibbons: I stopped glorifying women as beautiful only if they were also thin. In fact, beautiful
You feel the music needs something but you don't know what. So you start searching, fitting, measuring, trying. Every time you try another angle. And sometimes that's frustrating, especially if you don't come up with something for three days.Beth Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Beth Gibbons: You feel the music needs something but you don't know what.

Mrs. Smiling's second interest was her collection of brassieres, and her search for the perfect one. She was reputed to have the largest and finest collection of these garments in the world.

Well, everybody faces the fact there really aren't many records stores around to just go and browse. Maybe browse online, yet that tactile feel of flipping through a stack of vinyl remains one of life's simple pleasures.Billy Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Billy Gibbons: Well, everybody faces the fact there really aren't many records stores around to just go
Side note: is anyone else grateful social media wasn't a thing when they were a teenager? It's like Draco Malfoy and all three Heathers smooshed into one invisible organism that thrives on Internet memes and passive aggression.Brittany Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Brittany Gibbons: Side note: is anyone else grateful social media wasn't a thing when they were a
Philately is normally a boys' hobby but for some reason it was in vogue at my junior school. Between the ages of eight and ten I collected avidly. I'd pore over my Stanley Gibbons book, obsessively checking my collection's value. I always hoped I'd stumble across a really valuable one, a Penny Black or an Inverted Jenny, but it wasn't to be.Sophie Ellis-Bextor Gibbons's Sayings By Sophie Ellis-Bextor: Philately is normally a boys' hobby but for some reason it was in vogue at
The lady who works in the grocery store at the corner of my block is called Denise, and she's one of America's great unpublished novelists. Over the years she's written forty-two romantic novels, none of which have ever reached the bookstores. I, however, have been fortunate enough to hear the plots of the last twenty-seven of these recounted in installments by the authoress herself every time I drop by the store for a jar of coffee or can of beans, and my respect for Denise's literary prowess knows no bounds. So, naturally enough, when I found myself faced with the daunting task of actually starting the book you now hold in your hands, it was Denise I turned to for advice.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: The lady who works in the grocery store at the corner of my block is
Sooner rather than later, any other form other than digital media will be a thing of the past.

In God's economy, vision should move from the fringes to the middle.Dave Gibbons Gibbons's Sayings By Dave Gibbons: In God's economy, vision should move from the fringes to the middle.
It had grown cold in the night but he was numb with other weathers. An equinox in the heart, ill change, unluck. Suttree held his face in his hands. Child of darkness and familiar of small dooms. He himself used to wake in terror to find whole congregations of the uninvited attending his bed, protean figures slouched among the room's dark corners in all multiplicity of shapes, gibbons and gargoyles, arachnoids of outrageous size, a batshaped creature hung by some cunning in a high corner from whence clicked and winked like bone chimes its incandescent teeth.Cormac McCarthy Gibbons's Sayings By Cormac McCarthy: It had grown cold in the night but he was numb with other weathers. An
When you're drawing something, you kind of run a movie in your head.
