What the feminists and their ventriloquist puppet husbands are talking about doing with Government-Funded Daycare is raising children as if they were a herd of interchangeable swine. No surprise coming from a gender which has no ethics, no scruples, no sense of right and wrong.
Sim quotes
The greatest mistake you can make is to say that your work is better than a lot of the shit that's out there. No doubt. But being better than shit is not exactly a shining credential.
Sim
Because I say what is empirically true: nothing exists except God, I am deemed to be insane. (ibid, p.28)




Sim Dave quotes
In my experience women are like cats. When you don't want them you can't get rid of them and when you do want them it's like trying to pick up lint with a magnet.
Sim Dave
I take it as a given that God's knowledge of the Cerebus storyline dwarfs my own as God's knowledge of everything dwarfs my own. (#2, p. 9)
Dave Sim quotes
...there is very little about self-publishing a comic book that can be taught, but everything about it can be learned.

Sim Dave quotes
Pointing out that there's a turd lying on the carpet is not the same as shitting on the carpet.

Reality is reality. It is the way things are, not the way you want them to be in your head.




Dave Sim quotes
Stop trying to impress some art-school teacher with a stick up his butt whose opinions you never respected from the time you entered his class until you left it 10 years ago. Draw like you.
Dave Sim
In any creative field--any creative field--you must first understand that you have no value whatsoever. Your work has no value whatsoever. You are completely worthless. Whatever potential you have is just that--potential--and when you are discussing self-publishing a comic book, you have about the same chance of success as 10 thousand others.
Sim quotes
I'd rather take a major financial hit being honest than get rich by lying.
Sim Dave
If you really want to do it nothing and no one is going to stop you, if you don't really want to do it, nothing and no one is going to help you.
Sim Dave quotes
The first five years that I did Cerebus I could have made more money baby-sitting (that isn't a joke). Five years. Think about it.
Dave Sim
Oscar: In a society where dissenting viewpoints are suppressed, those viewpoints are potent and dangerous... Where dissent is tolerated, it rapidly becomes quaint and is viewed as un-sophisticated; people merely amuse themselves with the expression of contrary opinion.
Dave Sim quotes
Cerebus: The valuable lesson is that you can get what you want and still not be very happy...
Dave Sim
It seems to me a core element of belief in God that a choice is a choice and it eliminates all other choices.
Sim Dave
I'd rather live in the gutter embracing reality than live like a king embracing unreality.
