Advertising men and politicians are dangerous if they are separated. Together they are diabolical.More Phillip Adams [08/17/2010 12:08:00]
The book can produce an addiction as fierce as heroin or nicotine, forcing us to spend much of our lives, like junkies, in book shops and libraries, those literary counterparts to the opium den.More Phillip Adams [08/17/2010 12:08:00]
The Internet provides a delivery system for pathological states of mind.More Phillip Adams [08/17/2010 12:08:00]
Unless you're willing to have a go, fail miserably, and have another go, success won't happen.More Phillip Adams [08/17/2010 12:08:00]
I wanted to take the shot. I usually make my shots from that spot, so when I got the ball I knew it was going up. I live for situations like that. I'm not going to let us down, not going to let us lose. I love my team. We have a mission, to win the state, and we won't stop until we do it.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The events of September 11 were carried out by people armed not with weapons of mass destruction, but with blades you can buy at a newsagentMore Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

But Watson would have told us, had the [full version] gone ahead, that this was a dominating woman who drove him I suppose, dare one suggests, in much the same way that Janette [Howard] might drive John. But that [Keating] felt unsupported finally. This is murky territory. The only one who is entitled to comment, apart from the players, is Don.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We've been motivated this year. Everybody on our team expects to be good. Everybody expects to win every time we play. It won't be that hard to calm down and let everything work. We'll play until the final second.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You've only to walk amongst them, to trail your fingers over their spines, to be enriched by a wonderful osmosisMore Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Success is easy. Any mug can be successful and make a fist of it. It's how you deal with it afterwards that is the test of character. I've watched a lot of people lose everything. Now Keating in a sense has lost everything. If you add up all the things he's lost, it's pretty significant. But there is still an absolutely remarkable, unbroken, interesting, involved bloke who is not crushed by what he's been through at all. He's still defiant, he's still funny, he's still full of ideas.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Unless you are willing to try, fail miserable, and try again, success won't happen.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sport provides the spectacle, the metaphor, the religious ritual, the putty to fill the cracks in countless lives.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The old dead trees are the most fascinating - the countless trees lying in the gullies and up the hills that fell perhaps a century ago, pulling up their roots from the earth as they toppled. The great upheavals left rocks in their huge tentacles and, as they slowly rot, the trunks are home to populations of creatures, from goannas to wild pigs. As grey as tombstones in a cemetery they lie there, having outlasted generations of farmers, as they'll outlast me. In their own way they are as beautiful, more beautiful, thanMore Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Let the massacres remind us to turn down our political volume and venom.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While sticks and stones break bones, words can never hurt? Manifestly untrue. Politics everywhere are holistic, interconnected, and the rhetoric of right or left can produce toxic atmospheres in which lunacy thrives.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Today, words. Tomorrow, sticks and stones. And the day after that?More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fame often comes to those who are thinking about something else, whereas celebrity comes to those who think about nothing else. Celebrity is, if you like, a forgery of fame: it has the form but lacks the content.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Trees are very good friends. Firm friends. My five year olds tree could be relied upon to be there next day, uncritical and protective. And think of trees contribution to our lives. They provide boats, buildings, paper, furniture and, for clog-wearers, footwear. As well as contributing toothpicks and chopsticks they give little birdies somewhere comfy to sit. Best of all, they help produce breathable air and lock up that naughty carbon. Why is why I am talking to the Greens about giving trees the vote.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The most intense hatreds are not between political parties but within them.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I was five, a tree was my best friend. An old peppercorn on Grandpa's little farm. I'd haul myself into its calloused arms and hide from the world in its foliage. Apart from the pleasure of looking down on unsuspecting adults, I could be Robin Hood in a one-tree Sherwood Forest or Johnny Weissmuller in his jungle. I fell out of my friend once while Tarzan-ing. Gashed a large chunk from a leg. Almost 70 years later, there's still a scar.More Phillip Adams [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
