Here's my variation:
Do the same thing with your random quote file.

IF SOMEONE SAYS "IS THIS OKAY" YOU SAY??
It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem
all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way
of advice than "Try to be a little kinder." -- Aldous Huxley via
www.DharmaTheCat.com


WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
The only way I can feel the least bit important is to think of all the
mud that didn't even get to sit up and look around. -- Kurt Vonnegut,
Cat's Cradle, Or Ice-Nine


WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
"The first casualty of war is always the truth."
-- "Acts of Sacrifice," Babylon 5


WHAT IS YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE?
My Love is of a birth as rare / As 'tis, for object, strange and high;
It was begotten by Despair / Upon Impossibility. --Andrew Marvell


WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
A radical is a person with both feet firmly planted in the air.
-- Winston Churchill


WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
Giant weekly magazines scare me. They are the busy adult's version of
monsters under the bed. -- SJM


WHAT IS 2+2?
It seems to me that the relationship between the way a person
eats/exercises and their BMI has about as much connection as how hard
someone works and their bank balance. I wonder what law of
thermodynamics governs wealth. -- Deb Burgard, in response to a WebMD
editorial suggesting that, since people's bodies are subject to the laws
of physics, we could cure obesity simply by "not feeding" fat people.


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIENDS?
Children, apples of my eyes, when you feel like weeping gems, go to the
garbage dumps, the dead ends of the labyrinth, the oubliettes, the
cemeteries, the charnal grounds. Find yourself a spot there and
surrender to the melancholy of the place, recollect the sadness around
you and the misery of the world, and wish ardently that they cease. The
more sincere your feelings, the clearer the gems that will form. Gems
from cruelty have facets, gems from broken hearts are purple or orange,
the death of a child brings forth emeralds; animals that people torment
bring forth pearls and diamonds. The deeper the emotion, the more
luminous the gem. --Esther Rochon/Henry Polard


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
The night took an eternity. And in that time she either became a little
more mature, or a little crazier. She couldn't decide which. -- Greg
Bear, Blood Music


WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
"If you're not careful enough, you can lose yourself in the world. If
you're too busy with things and not busy enough with yourself. Spend
your days and nights living someone else's agendas, fighting someone
else's battles, and you're doing the work you're supposed to be doing,
but every day there's less and less of you in it all."
-- Dr. Stephen Franklin, "Walkabout," Babylon 5


WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
The thing I like best about Spider-Man is that there's a hyphen in the
title. -- SJM's review of the movie


WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
"Along the lines of getting a massage, taking a hot bubble bath, and
swimming in a pool of warm, melted chocolate, can you give me some
innovative ways that you pamper yourself?"
"Spend three hours flaming stupid people on the Net." -- Aahz


WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
I'm not out with a checklist "filling my needs," driven by some odd
collector's mentality [...] I was not as far as I know afflicted with
any genetic predisposition to be poly, I am not now nor have I ever been
More Highly Evolved, I am not "beyond monogamy," I am not as far as I
know "hardwired" for poly, I am not as far as I can tell bowing to
dictates of natural selection, poly peer pressure, or the Lifestyle of
the Month Club. I am shamelessly, selfishly, and unabashedly Doing It
Because I Like It. -- Elise Matthesen


WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
Although the Yaga could blow life's breath into a mouse-child with
infinite tenderness, she would rather not be around sweetness and light
too much....
....a woman gradually learns to not just look, but to squint and
peer, and then, more and more, to suffer no fools. -- Clarissa Pinkola
Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves


WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
An abstract term is like a valise with a false bottom, you may put in it
what ideas you please, and take them out again, without being observed.


WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
"Oh, Jesus Fucking Vorlon on a Motorbike. Read for content." -- Stef


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
I like to torture my plants by watering them with ice cubes.
--Steve Wright


WHAT'S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN?
There was a dawn I remember
when my soul heard something
from your soul. I drank water
from your spring and felt
the current take me. -- Rumi, tr. Coleman Barks


HOW WILL YOU DIE?
Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with
it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels. --Goya


WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU REGRET?
"I happen to believe I have great talent. Therefore I don't mind
waiting for it to mature." -- Takeo Kajiwara, _The Direction of Play_
[Tokyo: The Ishi Press (1979); translation of _Ishi no Koko_]. Kajiwara
became a professional shodan (1-dan) at the age of fourteen, and in 1965
was promoted to 9-dan.


WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
You can't say "take responsibility for yourself" to other people, if
what you mean is "do what I think you should do." -- SJM


WHAT MAKES YOU CRY?
Law of Bag / Box Occupancy
All bags and boxes in a given room must contain a cat within the
earliest possible nanosecond. -- Dave Gerecke


WILL YOU EVER GET MARRIED?
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.
-- George Carlin


WHAT SCARES YOU THE MOST?
It was like a bad TV show. "He's a reincarnated serial killer -- his
partner's a bird. They're cops." -- Matthew the raven, in SANDMAN #65:
"The Kindly Ones:9" (Neil Gaiman)


DOES ANYONE LIKE YOU?
Diogenes, having abandoned his search for truth, is now searching for
a good fantasy.


IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?
That we can comprehend the little we know already is
mindboggling in itself. -- Tom Gates

Paranoid Agnostic: If there are any Higher Powers, they're out to get us.
-- via Lynx


WHAT WILL YOU POST THIS AS?
I resent the implication that I am a one-dimensional,
bread-obsessed electrical appliance. -- Red Dwarf
