"Profanity is the adjective of the feeble minded." - Gordon Lane

"Profanity is a weak mind trying to express itself forcefully" - Unknown



George Washington - “When it was reported to General Washington

that the army was frequently indulging in swearing, he

immediately sent out the following order: The general is

sorry to be informed that the foolish and wicked practice of

profane cursing and swearing — a vice little known heretofore in

the American army — is growing into fashion. Let the men and

officers reflect 'that we can not hope for the blessing of

heaven on our army if we insult it by our impiety and

folly.
'”



Unknown - “Profanity never did any man the least good, no man is the richer, or happier, or the wiser for it. It commends no one to any society. It is disgusting to the refined; abominable to the good, insulting to those with whom we associate; degrading to the mind, unprofitable, needless, and injurious to society.



"Nothing is greater or more fearful sacrilege than to prostitute the great name of God to the petulancy of an idle tongue." - Jeremy Taylor



"The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it." - George Washington

"The fact that you explore yourself more than others, that you dress differently, that you don't find idle chatter entertaining, that you aren't faddish, that you despise television, or that you don't respect "public opinion", (an oxymoron if ever there was one), may mean that you live, not below the standard of normalcy, but above it."

I liked what Tony said on The Sopranos last Sunday:

"'Remember When' is the lowest form of conversation."
(In response to a couple of guys exchanging non-stop "remember when" stories)
