Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful; yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the present age, alas! our pens are ravished by unlettered authors and unmannered critics, that make a havoc rather than a building, a wilderness rather than a garden. But, a lack! what boots it to drop tears upon the preterit?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women have no wilderness in them. They are provident instead content in the tight hot cell of their hearts. To eat dusty bread.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What would the world be, once bereft of wet and wildness? Let them be left. O let them be left, wildness and wet; Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

RJ: Please don't think I'm prying, but I couldn't help overhearing, and I think I can shed a little light on what this whole hedge situation is about. You see, what was once mere wilderness is now 54 acres of man-made, manicured, air-conditioned paradise.
[Points at map]
RJ: Except for that little-bitty speck. You are here.
[All gasp]
RJ: No, no, that's a good thing. You're hibernators, right? You gather up a bunch of food, store it away for the winter?
Hammy the Squirrel: Aha! We fill the log!
Verne: Hammy.
RJ: Really? This log? This cave-like log?
Ozzie: All the way to the top.
Verne: Ozzie.
RJ: Let me ask ya, how long's it take, you know, to fill the log?
Heather: Two-hundred and seventy-four days.
RJ: Ooh! Ever done it in a week?
Verne: That's impossible.
RJ: Not if we work together. You see, you've got the food-gathering skills, I've got the know-how, and they have the food.
Heather: How much food?
RJ: Loads of food! Heaps of food! Food out the wazoo!
Verne: Well, you know, whatever kind of food comes out of a wazoo, I really don't think we're interested in eating.
Lou: I don't know. The guy's making a lot of sense to me. I think we should listen.
Penny: Yeah. I'm okay with wazoo food there.More [04/27/2007 12:04:00]
Lt. Fergus Falls: Alright listen up, people. Our man will be on foot and running. A man that's tired, a man that's possibly hurt will have a stride of 4 ft, 2 and 3/4 inches while wearing boxer shorts. Four feet even, with the restrictions of a brief. Which means he will cover four miles in one hour. He's got an hour and 3/4 start on us. He'll take to the nearest highway. He'll commandeer a car or hop on a truck.
[Ryan is in a garbage can for hiding on the back of a truck]
Lt. Fergus Falls: Now, the average elevation in this area is 2,057 feet 2 and ¼ inches, with one exception. He will take any chances, do anything to stay a free man. Climb, hike, rappel. Hell, even fall down a damn mountain.
[Ryan falls down the steepest hill in the whole wide world inside the garbage can]
Lt. Fergus Falls: It's a wilderness out there so this citified sophisticate better watch himself. He's in the heart of bear country.
[Ryan bumps heads with a bear]
Lt. Fergus Falls: This fiddle player will be hungry, famished, starved. His last meal was twelve hours ago.
[an eagle feeds Ryan in his nest]
Lt. Fergus Falls: This boy's on the run. He'll head for the city, a large city. He'll try to lose himself in a crowd.
[Ryan is at the Million Man March]
Lt. Fergus Falls: And wherever he goes, he will feel hundreds of eyes are staring his way. No matter what he does, no matter where he goes, he will feel hunted. And my friends, you are looking at the hunter! Bagley!
Sgt. Tina Bagley: Sir!
Lt. Fergus Falls: I want roadblocks around a 10-mile radius. Set up communications with all law enforcement. That's state, county, city! Get me Governor Carlson. I may need the National Guard.
[Waitress walks by]
Lt. Fergus Falls: Diet coke, no ice. Alright, people. I want Harrison caught in 4 hours and 28 minutes. That will make it exactly high noon. Now let's move it!More [05/20/2007 12:05:00]
Ed Furillo: This guy, Curly, is a true cowboy. One of the last real men. He's untamed. Next to him, we're trained ponies. It'll do us good to be in his world for a while.
[Curly is approaching them from behind Mitch]
Mitch Robbins: Do us good? Didn't you guys see? The man was hanging the hired help! And, did you notice his eyes? He has crazy eyes. He's a lunatic! We are going into the wilderness being led by a lunatic!
[Mitch notices everyone's terrified faces as Curly is standing directly behind him]
Mitch Robbins: He's behind me, isn't he?More [07/23/2007 12:07:00]
Mike Wallace: Do me a favor, will you - spare me, for God's sake, get in the real world, what do you think? I'm going to resign in protest? To force it on the air? The answer's "no". I don't plan to spend the end of my days wandering in the wilderness of National Public Radio. That decision I've already made.More [04/17/2008 12:04:00]
Duncan: And who empowered these colonials to pass judgement on England's policies, and to come and go without so much as a "by your leave"?
Cora Munro: They do not live their lives "by your leave"! They hack it out of the wilderness with their own two hands, bearing their children along the way!More [07/07/2008 12:07:00]

Chingachgook: The frontier moves with the sun and pushes the Red Man of these wilderness forests in front of it until one day there will be nowhere left. Then our race will be no more, or be not us.
Hawkeye: That is my father's sadness talking.
Chingachgook: No, it is true. The frontier place is for people like my white son and his woman and their children. And one day there will be no more frontier. And men like you will go too, like the Mohicans. And new people will come, work, struggle. Some will make their life. But once, we were here.More [07/07/2008 12:07:00]

Breck Coleman, Wagon Train Scout:
We can't turn back! We're blazing a trail that started in England. Not even the storms of the sea could turn back the first settlers. And they carrie dit on further. They blazed it on through the wilderness of Kentucky. Famine, hunger, not even massacres could stop them. And now we picked up the trail again. And nothing can stop us! Not even the snows of winter, nor the peaks of the highest mountain. We're building a nation and we got to suffer! No great trail was ever built without hardship. And you got to fight! That's right. And when you stop fighting, that's death. What are you going to do, lay down and die? Not in a thousand years! You're going on with me!

Michael O'Toole:
I have, in my time, visited three political conventions, four sessions of congress, and two homes for the criminally insane. I have known army generals, steam doctors, vegetarians, prohibitionists, and a female suffragette. But never, even in an Orangeman's Day parade, have I seen such pure and stainless brainlessness as I now behold in you. The Almighty, in His infinite wisdom and mercy, has given the worm enough sense to turn with, and the barnacle can grasp whatever happens to be standing by. But you are equipped with a mental capacity smaller than you were born with. Here we are, benighted in the middle of a nowhere named Molly-Be-Damn - a dreary little rookery, Timothy, a squalid sty, a festering pustule on the face of the western slope. Bless the town and bless the people! Look at them - the rabble of this cantankerous community! Knaves and fools, louts and lardheads, the least of all God's creatures, without enough push to pick the fleas off each other, abiding in putrefaction and inertia, curled up comfy in it like hogs in a mud hole! And while I, of all people, fret and sweat for a way to pull these Simple Simons out of the bog, you stand around making flatulent noises for the titillation of the vulgar mob. And while he's bubbling himself, what are you doing, you pusillanimous pack of popcorn pickers? You clattered clutch of clucks? The town dilapidating around you, coasting downhill in a handcart to Hell while you stand about gaping for flies and going patty-cake with your hands!

There now! Now just one minute you!

Michael O'Toole:
All right, all right, all right! Fine! Keep it, and treasure it the way it is! For when all this trash has collapsed into one pile, and the howling wilderness has claimed its own again, I want you hicks to be happy, belching and spitting, laughing and singing, swinging from tree to tree, with your friend Soapy Sam here, the Uriah Heep of the hookworm belt, standing around below waiting to steal anything that falls to the ground. If a nut should drop and fall - leave it lying there. It's probably my little brother Timothy.

Is that all?

[O'Toole throws up his hands]

[Crowd applauds]

By acclamation - the winner of the cussin' contest - Michael O'Toole!

Into this wilderness came two great armies - 190,000 men... all of them expendable. The company of the 304th New York was among the smallest, the greenest and the most expendable of all.

Woodrow Call:

Gus McCrae:

Woodrow Call:
Why not go up to Montana? It's a cattleman's paradise to hear Jake tell it.

Gus McCrae:
Sounds like a damn wilderness if you ask me. And we're a shade old to start fightin' Indians all over again, don't you think?

Woodrow Call:
I mean it, Gus. Why not, go north with a herd?

Gus McCrae:
I'll tell you what. You ride on up there, clear out the Iindians, build a little cabin, get a nice fire goin' in the fireplace and me and Jake will gather a herd and then we'll come on up.

Woodrow Call:
I'd like to see the herd that you and Jake could gather. Herd o' whores, maybe.

Gus McCrae:
Well you ain't no more a cattleman than I am, Call, and y'know it, too.

Woodrow Call:
I wanna do it, Gus. I wanna see that country, before the bankers and lawyers all git it.

Tell you what, Mother Nature. You want some fucking reality?


Yeah. Right now, it's you and me.

You know, you're right. It is you and me. Because if you use any of that live ammo on any of my people, it is you and me. I'm gonna come looking for you.

[Displaying his knife sheath] You're gonna come looking? Go ahead, take hold of my knife. I'll slit your throat before you even touch the handle.

[Tossing away a deer's ear, distracting Jake] You haven't got a clue, have you? With all this armament. Survival in the wilderness is a matter of heart, not hardware. You're not that fargone, are you? There's a lot more going on out here than meets the eye.

[Hank backs away, then shows Jake's knife in his hand]

[Saffron is living "on campus" and Eddy tells her she wants her to move back home]

Mum, what is the problem? I have my life and you have yours. This is what you wanted.

I feel orphaned, you know.

What is the matter? Has the deal fallen through?

No the deal. Not the deal. Not that. It's just...


Well, darling, you have just sort of abandoned me in this sort of wilderness of potential greatness and fabulousness, haven't you? All my walls have gone "flop", "flop"... I'm just like this kind of prisoner that's released... RELEASED PRISONER, darling, that is walking out into the squinting sun. I mean, you've cast me adrift with no oars.

You have oars.

I haven't.

You have. You're just too lazy and fat to use them.

Whoa. What happened?

It crumpled the landing gear when we hit.

Well, aren't you gonna fix it? I mean can't we, can't we reattach it somehow?

Sure, we'll, like, glue it back on.

Aren't you one of those guys?

What guys?

Those guy guys, you know, those guys with skills.


Yeah. You send them into the wilderness with a pocket knife and a Q-tip and they build you a shopping mall. You can't do that?

No, I can't do that, but I can do this:

Does that help?

A huge, dun cupola, like a foolscap crown
On a fool's head--and there is London Town.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
