HERE ARE SOME OF MINE

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open.”

“If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.”

“I never set out to be weird. It was always other people who called me weird.”

“Republicans stand for raw, unbridled evil and greed and ignorance smothered in balloons and ribbons.”

“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.”

“If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.”

'The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.'

'Power will be maintained by the groovy guy or gal who gets the most media coverage for his sleaze. Naturally, his friends in various businesses will do okay, too.'

'Republican is fine, if your a millionaire. Democrats is fair, if all you own is what you wear. Neither of them's really right, cause neither of them care.'

Scientology, how about that? You hold on to the tin cans and then this guy asks you a bunch of questions, and if you pay enough money you get to join the master race. How's that for a religion?

The biggest threat to America today is not communism. It's moving America toward a fascist theocracy, and everything that's happened during the Reagan administration is steering us right down that pipe … I really think that. … When you have a government that prefers a certain moral code derived from a certain religion and that moral code turns into legislation to suit one certain religious point of view, and if that code happens to be very, very right wing, almost toward Attila the Hun...

Several of those quotes are just made up by others, claiming that they were from Frank.

Republican is fine... etc. is a verse from Hot Plate Heaven. If you are gonna turn lyrics into quotes, I could fill this page a hundred times over.

I've always liked that one...

Along with "writing about music is like fishing about architecture"
