Here's mine: The issue isn't whether or not we are the same as the Nazis, the issue is that we aren't different enough.

"When young we mourn for one woman, as we grow old, for women in general. The tragedy of life is that man is never free, but strives for what can never be. The thing most feared in dreams, always happens. My life, my love, where are they now? But the more the pain grows, the more this instinct for life somehow asserts itself. The necessary beauty in life is in giving yourself to it completely. Only later will it clarify itself and become coherent."

Is that the original use of "all in the same boat" or does it go back much farther than that?

I must confess: I adore the screentitle for MetaChat. It's the only thing I've ever read on a site addressed to no one and everyone that has drawn genuine affection from me.
