„At last we see what a four-hour erection looks like.“

—  Roger Ebert American film critic, author, journalist, and TV presenter 1942 - 2013
Context: I didn't have a stop watch, but it seemed to me the elephantine action scenes were pretty much spaced out evenly through the movie. There was no starting out slow and building up to a big climax. The movie is pretty much all climax. The Autobots® and Decepticons® must not have read the warning label on their Viagra. At last we see what a four-hour erection looks like. The Fall of the Revengers, discussing the film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen "Roger Ebert's Journal" http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2009/06/the_fall_of_the_revengers.html (24 June 2009)

Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.“

„Have no mean hours, but be grateful for every hour, and accept what it brings. The reality will make any sincere record respectable.“

—  Henry David Thoreau 1817-1862 American poet, essayist, naturalist, and abolitionist 1817 - 1862
Context: Have no mean hours, but be grateful for every hour, and accept what it brings. The reality will make any sincere record respectable. No day will have been wholly misspent, if one sincere, thoughtful page has been written. Let the daily tide leave some deposit on these pages, as it leaves sand and shells on the shore. So much increase of terra firma. this may be a calendar of the ebbs and flows of the soul; and on these sheets as a beach, the waves may cast up pearls and seaweed. July 6, 1840

For the facing of this hour.“

„On 9/11, those of us who do the jobs that I do, flew without a net for hour and hour and hour after end. And then you hope and pray that you've had the experience to be up to it.“

—  Peter Jennings News anchor 1938 - 2005
Context: On 9/11, those of us who do the jobs that I do, flew without a net for hour and hour and hour after end. And then you hope and pray that you've had the experience to be up to it. Because then you're editor, analyst, reporter, correspondent, ringmaster, the whole thing.
