ISHTAR QUOTES - Deep thoughts by Rogers &/or Clarke
"Life isn't that bad, I just have a lot of pain."
"And the way I see it, people would rather suffer with what they have than try the unknown."
"That's because most men lead lives of quiet desperation."
"Listen, don't call the police. If this gets into the newspapers, the scandal will ruin me in show business."
"Look at what you have."
"You see, Jim, all the big record companies want to sign us for an album. But right now, we're just refining our songs, you know, so we don't get ripped off by people like Simon & Garfunkel and, you know, Springsteen."
"I bet we could have any woman in this club."
"Is that near here?"
"Lyle's not a communist. He's from the South."
"You ever wonder that about old houses?"
"Why didn't you recruit me as a communist? Wasn't I good enough?"
"It's a free country. No thanks to you & Lyle."
"You bought a camel?"
"As one agent to another, I've heard the emir is a prick."
"It's hot today."
"You mean they're here on spec?"
"Brown-nosing the commies won't get you my girl."
"No, he's not pointing it at us. He's just riding shotgun in case there's trouble."
"That big, dumb, stupid-ass camel!"
"You think so?"
"Oh, is that true! Oh, is that right!"
"What a smuck I was."
"You really know the lingo."
"You walk into a place like that & girls just want you. You know, you got that kind of face. Kind of mean looking, but with character. And the way you walk, you can only do that with a small body. Did you ever hear of a big sports car?"
"Hey, it takes a lot of nerve to have nothing at your age. Don't you understand that? Yeah, most guys would be ashamed, but you've got the guts to just say, ''The hell with it.'' You say that you'd rather have nothing than settle for less. Understand?"
"Are these breasts?"
"Well, you got a lot of tricks, don't you? First you're a guy & you got Chuck's passport. Then you're a girl & you got his jacket..."
"You're kidding? You're Mohammed? First time up I hit a home run."
"Well, yea... well, nah... I didn't actually buy him, they sold him to me."
"Oh, God. I got a feeling something went wrong & now I own a blind camel."
"Could I have a map instead?"
"Sometimes I... I imagine you dressed like a girl."
"I don't think it's smart to keep walking out here in the desert."
"No, no, no! Not dead. Just resting!"
"This must be one of them once-in-a-lifetime things, like a glacier's melting."
"It's gonna be a scorcher."
"Look at the upside. We're not living lives of quiet desperation."
"Oh, boy, she must've gone through a lot if she found out about that wind."
"Run, smuck! They're trying to kill us!"
"Actually, I kind of admire that."
"Life is the way
We audition for God
Let us pray that
We all get the job."
"I'm just looking for
A stove to put my pies in"
(Capitol 45 RPM retail record version)
"I wanted to give you a present
To thank you for the past"
LOVE IN MY WILL
"I met her, fell
I loved her well"
"I can see her standing in the backyard of my mind"
THAT A LAWNMOWER CAN DO ALL THAT
"Take your time look around
And see if there's something your size"
WARDROBE OF LOVE
"When the tears won't even come
When the pain is so big"
SITTING ON THE EDGE OF MY LIFE
"They have not got soles on their shoes
But I have not got you"
HAVE NOT BLUES
"Here in Morocco, I found the spirit of Ishtar!"
"I feel so small when I look at the sky
How big is heaven? How big am I?"
