OK, now that we've gotten rid of the sourpusses -- here's a totally useless, but fun website.
First, click on this quote from Charles Dickens and then come back here when you're done:
If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.
Now click this Dickens quote:
Repression is the only lasting philosophy.
And finally, this one:
If you could see my legs when I take my boots off, you'd form some idea of what unrequited affection is.
Actually, if you looked at the underlying code for each of those quotes/links, you'd see that the quote is the URL. Mostly.

And the third quote, from Dombey and Son -- damned if we want to contemplate it too closely, but we swear it was assigned randomly! -- belongs now and forever to the Journal Times. Guys, you can thank us later.
