I have more in common with a three-toed sloth or a one-eyed pterodactyl or a Kalamata olive than I have with Winston Churchill.
My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.
I drink too much. The last time I gave a urine sample it had an olive in it.
Let peace descending from her native heaven bid her olives spring amidst the joyful nations and plenty in league with commerce scatter blessings from her copious hand!
As much as I hate his movies Oliver Stone has an aspiration I admire and that is that he wants his art to be part of what makes and changes public policy and cultural practice.
I enjoy sports. I get a real joy from playing sports but I don't look for those movies. Oliver Stone wanted to know if I would do Any Given Sunday and it just didn't appeal to me.
Nobody makes movies like Oliver Stone.
I come bearing an olive branch in one hand and the freedom fighter's gun in the other. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.
When I said a few weeks ago that our people would eat cooking oil and olives if necessary I didn't mean that there really would be only oil and olives. What I meant was that our people have the necessary patience to endure the current difficult situation. Palestinians would rather do without certain food items than their national rights.
They eat the dainty food of famous chefs with the same pleasure with which they devour gross peasant dishes mostly composed of garlic and tomatoes or fisherman's octopus and shrimps fried in heavily scented olive oil on a little deserted beach.
A vegan diet takes care of most of what we need to do. But you'll also want to minimize the use of oils generally because while olive oil and other vegetable oils are better for your heart than chicken fat they are as fattening as animal fats.
They can do without architecture who have no olives nor wines in the cellar.
