"There is no need to sally forth for it remains true that those things which make us human are, curiously enough, always close at hand. Let us resolve then that on this very ground with small flags flying and tinny blasts on tiny trumpets we may meet the enemy. And, not only may he be ours, he may be us." Walt Kelly (Pogo)

Heard on an interview a few years ago, I believe it was pronounced as 'Echara de menos' which the interviewee translated as 'we will be the less for their passing'

Over-protective mother talking to her young son:

"If you cross the street, you'll die.

If you go outside, you'll die.

If you play sports, you're very likely to die."

I heard this on the radio while driving this afternoon and laughed all the way home.
