Game goes like this, 1) one quote must follow another, 2) all questions must be answered (even if its with more questions), 3) quote must contain one word from previous quote (not a shitty little article or conjunction) and 4) quotes should be concise (use your judgement)

bonus points for not using a book of quotations or internet equivilent
For a start -

"He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man."

Dr. Johnson

Woot. Quotes.

"As I was walking up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
I wish, I wish he'd stay away."

-Hughes Mearns

"What is a man,
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? a beast, no more."
--Hamlet, in the play of the same name by William Shakespeare

Edit: Crap, beaten to it.

It still works. I used "man" in mine, too.
