[Homer Simpson] Matt Groening 'I ain't a communist necessarily, but I been in the red all my life.' Woody Guthrie 'I don't eat anything with a face.' Linda McCartney 'Never stop because you are afraid - you are never so likely to be wrong.' Fridtjof Nansen 'I watch where the cosmetics industry is going and then walk in the opposite direction.' Anita Roddick 'I wish I had invented blue jeans.' Yves Saint Laurent 'Fame vaporizes, money goes with the wind, and all that's left is character.' O. J. Simpson
