Calvinism !

Here are some of the best from Calvin for you all..:)

"That's one of the remarkable things about life. It's never so bad that it can't get worse."
"The only skills I have the patience to learn are those that have no real application in life."
"There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want."
"If you do the job badly enough, sometimes you don't get asked to do it again."
"There's an inverse relationship between how good something is for you and how much fun it is."
"The strength to change what I can, the inability to accept what I can't, and the incapacity to tell the difference."
"So the secret to good self esteem is to lower your expectations to te point where they're already met?"
"Happiness is being famous for your financial ability to indulge in every kind of excess"

Calvin: Why should I have to WORK for everything?! It's like saying I don't deserve it!
Calvin: Who wouldn't be interested in everything we do?!
Calvin: Reality continues to ruin my life.
Calvin: What's the point of wearing your favorite rocketship underpants if nobody ever asks to see 'em?
Calvin: They only recognize greatness when some authority confirms it.

Hobbes: This one's tricky. You have to use imaginary numbers, like eleventeen...
Calvin: I wish I was a tiger.
Hobbes: A common lament.
Calvin: But Calvin is no kind and loving god! He's one of the old gods! He demands sacrifice!
Calvin: You know how Einstein got bad grades as a kid? Well, mine are even worse!

Susie: Our class voted Calvin the "Most likely to be seen on the news some day".
Calvin: I say, if your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life.
Hobbes: No sport is less organized than Calvinball!

Bill Watterson: I imagine it must be a great temptation to misuse one's parental authority for private jokes.
Calvin: You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don't help.
Calvin: Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.

Dad: It will build character.
Hobbes: I like to say "quark"! Quark, quark, quark, quark!
Calvin: I don't need to compromise my principles, because they don't have the slightest bearing on what happens to me anyway.
Calvin: It seems like once people grow up, they have no idea what's cool.
Calvin: It's psychosomatic. You need a lobotomy. I'll get a saw.

Hobbes: Did you ask your Mom if you could jump off the roof?
Calvin: Questions I know the answers to I don't need to ask, right?
Hobbes: I don't know which is worse, ...that everyone has his price, or that the price is always so low.
Calvin: I'm being educated against my will! My rights are being trampled!

Hobbes: Is it a right to remain ignorant?
Calvin: I don't know, but I refuse to find out!

Calvin: I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them. I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog!
Calvin: Getting an inch of snow is like winning 10 cents in the lottery.

Calvin: Twisted fiend! No four walls can hold Stupendous Man!You've been foiled again, evil Mom-Lady! Ha ha ha!
Mom: Oh yeah?

Calvin: Great Zok! She's fixed her mind-scrambling eyeball ray on me! I'm suddenly filled with the desire to go back upstairs and do her nefarious bidding!
Mom: Glad to hear it.

Calvin: People think it must be fun to be a super genius, but they don't realize how hard it is to put up with all the idiots in the world.
Calvin: I've been thinking, Hobbes.Hobbes: On a weekend?Calvin: Well, it wasn't on purpose...
Calvin: Why would she want another kid?? She's already got me!Hobbes: Yes, you'd think she'd have learned her lesson...

Calvin: Dad, how do people make babies?
Dad: Most people just go to Sears, buy the kit, and follow the assembly instructions.
Calvin: I came from Sears??
Dad: No, you were a Blue Light Special at K Mart. Almost as good, and a lot cheaper.
