OK, here's the rules of the game. I'll give you a few lines from a play, or poem, or something, and then you try and name the poem or play and who wrote it. The first one ot get it right puts down the next line, and so on.

OK...so here we go:

"There was movement at the station
For the word had passed around;
That the colt from Old Regret had got away
And had joined the wild bush horses, he was worth a thousand pounds;
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray."

OK, this took a lot longer than it should have... It's kinda hard to find something that's not incredibly obvious, but not so obscure that only a half-dozen people know it...

Anyways, here goes:
Billy: [Gene is loading a machine gun] Excuse me, is that an Uzi?
Gene: (glances at Babo & Billy) You know, that would make a great TV commercial? 'Excuse me, is that an Uzi?' 'Why, yes it is. Hey, self-defense is no laughing matter! That's why when I want number one, I pack an Uzi...accept no substitutes.'

Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;

TS Eliot!! The Wasteland/burial of the dead

EVERY ONE HAS HEARD people quarreling. Sometimes it sounds funny and sometimes it sounds merely unpleasant; but however it sounds, I believe we can learn something very important from listening to the kinds of things they say. They say things like this: "How’d you like it if anyone did the same to you?"--‘That’s my seat, I was there first"--"Leave him alone, he isn’t doing you any harm"--"Why should you shove in first?"--"Give me a bit of your orange, I gave you a bit of mine"--"Come on, you promised." People say things like that every day, educated people as well as uneducated, and children as well as grown-ups.

Now what interests me about all these remarks is that the man who makes them is not merely saying that the other man’s behavior does not happen to please him. He is appealing to some kind of standard of behavior which he expects the other man to know about. And the other man very seldom replies: "To hell with your standard."

The Taming of the Shrew, William Shakespeare, Act II

"There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret. Not because I'm in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then then, a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bullshit word. So you go on and stamp your form, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don't give a shit."

"Yes, I believe, truly."
"Then I want you to remove it at once. You are never to wear it within this castle again! Do you know how a falcon is trained, my dear? Her eyes are sewn shut. Blinded temporarily, she suffers the whims of her god patiently, until her will is submerged and she learns to serve. Has your god totally blinded you with crosses?"

I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.
