"How are you, Simon? It's been a long time!"
"I’m a bit under the weather, Alan. But it certainly has been a long time, although they say that absence does make the heart grow fonder."

"Indeed, but the heart must be in the right place."
"In the right place at the right time, too."
“Ha, a stitch in time…”
“…Saves nine, but we should exercise patience.”
“Patience comes with time.”
“Forget time - time is money.”
“Careful, money is the root of all evil.”
“Maybe it is just the lesser of two evils.”
“Two evils, what is the other?”
“Power; since it tends to corrupt
“Yes, I know that absolute power corrupts absolutely, but I thought that knowledge is power.”
“Ah, another pearl of wisdom.”
“As Kant said, ‘Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.’”
“So science is power?”
“Well, you can blind somebody with science.”
“In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.”
“Sorry, the king is dead!”
“Dead? There are fates worse than death, my friend.”
“'What fates impose, that men must needs abide; it boots not to resist both wind and tide,’ Shakespeare!”
“'The future's in the air, I can feel it everywhere, blowing with the wind of change,’ The Scorpions.”
“Behave! Nothing ever changes; a leopard can’t change its spots.”
“You mean it is rooted to its spots?”
“There’s never change. History is doomed to repeat itself.”
“I thought this was history in the making.”
“Aha, you have hit the nail on the head!”
“Better than hitting your head against a brick wall.”
“Come on, it is like talking to a wall with you.”
“Get used to it - live by the sword, die by the sword!”
“I live by the pen; it is mightier than the sword.”
“Why write when a picture paints a thousand words?”
“Words fail me!”
“Exactly, that’s why actions are better than words.”
“You’ll be eating your words soon.”
“The proof of the pudding is in the eating!”
“You’re going to get your just deserts.”
“You are giving me food for thought.”
“You are what you eat.”
“Ok, sorry. Nobody is perfect.”
“Practice makes perfect.”
“Stop playing Devil's Advocate.”
“Well, the devil does find work for idle hands.”
“He’s got you in the palm of his hand.”
“Wrapped around his little finger?”
“No, under his thumb.”
“So if the Devil gives me the thumbs up, I can escape.”
“You don’t get out of hell in a handbasket.”
“Perhaps on a wing and a prayer then.”
“Pie in the sky dreams!”
“Maybe I am just wet behind the ears.”
“I could hang you out to dry, if you wish.”
“Keep your powder dry for next time.”
“Time flies and so must I.
“Don’t fly by the seat of your pants!”
“Caution is my middle name.
“Good to see you have made a name for yourself."
“It’ll be in lights soon…goodbye!”
“Don’t let the door hit you on the way out! Goodbye!”
