Famous quotes containing the words extra and/or point:

    Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of “the rat race” is not yet final.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)

    Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
