  • "In life, you gotta do a lot of things you don't f***ing wanna do. Many times, that's what the f*** life is, one vile f***ing task after another. But don't get aggravated--then the enemy has you by the short hair." --Al Swearengen (Ian McShane), "Deadwood" (created by David Milch)

  • Possibly the most unnecessary phrase in English.

    "In life, you can't always get what you want."
    "In life, there are winners and there are losers."
    "In life, not everyone can be trusted."

    Do we use this qualifier because we're afraid people will think we're talking about something other than life? Aren't some things just a given?
