Still More Almost-Quotations

 

The following are some favorite quotes, along with their Almost-World counterparts.


The Beatles: All you need is love.

John Dalston: Almost-all you need is like.


The Beatles: Give peace a chance.

John Dalston (if peace doesn't work): Give almost-war a chance.


John Lennon (In the movie A Hard Day's Night): Can you turn into black and white the situation somewhat?

John Dalston: What are the variables, uncertainties, and risks associated with this presumed "sure thing"?


Jamie Dimon: I still consider myself barely a Democrat.

John Dalston: I still consider myself both Almost-a-Democrat and Almost-a-Republican.


Saying: Been there, done that, bought the shirt.

John Dalston: Almost-travelled there when I saw it on television, did not actually do it myself (but I saw how it was done), and I saved a bit not having bought some shirt that nobody would dare wear in public.


Kansas: All we are is dust in the wind.

John Dalston: Some of the people might be just "dust in the wind" some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.


Kansas: Nothing lasts forever but the Earth and sky.

John Dalston: Almost-right. Some things last for almost-ever. But our Earth and sky won't be around after the star (our sun) goes red dwarf. Then there's the "big rip" to almost-worry about . . .


Shakespeare: Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears . . .

John Dalston: Acquaintances, anyone in Italy, and country music lovers, lend me your cell-phones (I need your almost-undivided attention) . . .

John Dalston: Some are born mediocre, some just don't try hard enough, and some are held down by circumstances.


Shakespeare: Parting is such sweet sorrow.

John Dalston: Almost-parting is to do this: get to the door and continue to talk, then stay and have another beer.


Shakespeare: To be, or not to be: that is the question.

John Dalston: Everyone is almost whoever they become next.


Shakespeare: There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

John Dalston: That's part of it. But also, nothing is all good, or all bad, even for just the person doing the thinking.


Sandy's Theorem: Keep it complicated, stupid.

John Dalston: Don't keep it so complicated that you yourself can't figure it out, smart-ass.


          Sandy's Corollary: If you can't remember it, forget about it.

          John Dalston: If you can't remember it exactly, you probably still need to remember the gist of it.


Cops: Assume the position.

John Dalston: Assume the almost-position (stay on the fence, even if you're leaning to one side a bit).


Saying: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

John Dalston: Vegas is not exactly leakproof.
