    T-Nation's forum posted a collection I always come back to.

    Mark Rippetoe Quotes - Off Topic - Forums - T Nation

    My choice: "There are few things graven in stone, except that you have to squat or you're a pussy."

    Runner-up: On the ethics of meat-eating "Okay, have you ever been around chickens? They are stupid, uncooperative, inconvenient, ill-tempered creatures. They get what they deserve. Fuck chickens."

    I finally started writing down Ripís one-liners. Here is what I have so far, mostly from late dinners after a seminar, in whatever city we happen to be in:

    They donít like us and itís not our fault and if it is our fault, we donít care.

    Powerlifting is a trailer park sport

    You said something that doesnít make sense. Yoga people.... think. Yoga people donít think, they just know.

    The best way to get confident in yourself is to give yourself hard things to achieve, and to achieve them

    Marathons are not good for you. The first man that did one fell over dead.

    Type II diabetes is also known as glucose poisoning.

    Keep that in mind.

    Complexity appeals to stupid people.

    Thereís no romance in simplicity.

    I hate thatís the way that it is, but thatís the truth.

    Leave people the fuck alone.

    Vietnam was a real fucked up situation.

    Fuck those people.

    Do you want to stay married? Donít coach your wife.

    I like my wine foot powder dry.

    Driving a Prius is like having a real ugly, dependable girlfriend.

    You can make chili out of shoes if you grate it fine enough.

    Also, here are some of my favorites from the books - some of these are printed on the walls of the gyms:

    The deadlift also serves as a way to train the mind to do things that are hard

    Humans are not physically normal in the absence of hard physical effort

    Pressing the barbell overhead is still the most useful upper body exercise in the weight room

    Physical strength is the most important thing in life. This is true whether we want it to be or not

    There is never an absolute answer to everything, except of course that you have to do your squats

    If word count is not a relevant consideration, how about the famous Paul Horn post here, to someone that expressed fear about their next squat workout?

    Awesome, thanks for sharing. Can't wait for those generated by Starting Strength. They will be a nice addition to the garage in "these trying times."

    I always liked this one:

    Mark, how much can you half squat? As much as I can walk out of the rack with. But that would be the last time I used my knees, so I don't do half squats.

    I laughed when I read his response to question 3 at this post.

    Sets of 4 reps are illegal.
