Nick Hornby and One of My All-Time Favorite Quotes

Check this out. One of my all-time favorite quotes from one of my all-time favorite authors, Nick Hornby:

How do people, like, not curse? How is it possible? There are all these gaps in speech where you just have to put a "fuck." I'll tell you who the most admirable people in the world are: newscasters. If that was me, I'd be like, "And the motherfuckers flew the fucking plane right into the Twin Towers."

You gotta love Nick! That was taken from his novel "A Long Way Down", but, if you've never read anything of his, I'd recommend starting with his two greatest books: "High Fidelity" and "About A Boy". Fuckin' great stuff!
