Hello! I had fun with our last debate, so I decided to make another one. Don't feel like you have to accept, though. Totally up to you. If tennis47 does not join, this debate is free to anyone else.

Good luck!

"Conversation should be pleasant without scurrility, witty without affectation, free without indecency, learned without conceitedness, novel without falsehood." - William Shakespeare

"It has always seemed strange to me... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second." - John Steinbeck

"Elmo loves everybody doesn't matter if your red, green, blue or even if you have hair or fur!" - Elmo

"A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice." - Bill Cosby

"When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity." - Albert Einstein

"Every man dies. Not every man really lives." -William Wallace

"Writing for adults often means just increasing the swearing - but find an alternative to swearing and you've probably got a better line." - Steven Moffat

I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong." - John Lennon

"I was in the bath at the time, and my dad came running in and said, 'Guess who they want to play Harry Potter!?' and I started to cry. It was probably the best moment of my life." - Daniel Radcliffe

"Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity." - George Carlin

"I run six-to-eight miles a day, plus weights and aerobics in the lunch hour. I also lie a lot, which keeps me thin." - Hugh Laurie

"It only takes a room of Americans for the English and Australians to realise how much we have in common." - Steven Fry

"I remember the first time I heard a teenager say 'LOL.' Just what? But it means 'laugh.' Why don't you just laugh? What are you doing?" - J.K. Rowling
