Two people – Eligijus Sinkunas and Marisha Kazaryan – have performed a national or perhaps an international service.
You know I’m a big Chuck Norris fan. Everybody at WND is. It’s a collection of things that Chuck Norris actually wrote or said – sort of his words to live by.
I know. You’ve probably heard all the internet-jokes people have come up with for the man whose non-stage name is Carlos Ray Norris.
He’s been writing pretty much exclusively for WND since Oct 23, 2006 – hundreds of columns, some on general topics, sometimes health, always good.
Chuck started his career as a martial artist. With three black belts to his credit, he took up training celebrities. Then he was invited to play in action films – tough guys first and then good guys.
Then came the jokes and memes.
He’s also a writer and was a New York Times bestselling author twice.
The quotes are found in his books, interviews and speeches, say the finders of these gems.
Here’s a few samples of my favorites:
#138: “I gave my life to the Lord at 12. I was baptized at 12.”
#137: “Cross Country: no half times, no time outs, no substitutions. It must be the only true sport.”
#136: “I truly believe that the people who have a negative view of Trump will be pleasantly surprised when he becomes the leader of our country. I also believe he will make positive changes that will benefit the people who need it most.”
#133: “Well, I grew up as a democrat.” (Me too!)
#132: “In America the schools have become too permissive, the kids now are controlling the schools, the tail is wagging the dog. We’ve got to make a change there and get it back to where the teachers have control of the classrooms.”
#130: “Unfortunately, people are re-interpreting the Constitution as a living document, and it’s not. It’s a solid-based document and it shouldn’t be played with.” (I say hallelujah to that!)
#129: Let’s face it: so much of what we consume is not driven by knowledge but by basic craving and impulse. The process of what we eat starts in our heads. And no one is more in our heads than a food industry that spends billions of dollars in marketing its message by every means possible.”
#128: “I’m not a hunter.” (I didn’t know.)
#126: “What was Bruce Lee like? How did you meet? What was it like to choreograph the fight scene in Rome with him? Did you spend much time together off-screen? Those are a small sampling of the inquiries I’m asked often, wherever I go around the world.” (This man is funny.)
#124: “The final line in the Second Amendment says, ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ That means not by the president, not by Congress.”
#121: “People have a hard time believing that, but not having a father around, being shy, I just never participated in sports much.”
#119: “In the many roles I have played in my acting career as military figures, I have simply drawn upon the acts of courage, large and small, I have seen in the men and women with whom I served, and the countless others I met or have come to know through the years.”
#116: “Getting kids into the kitchen preparing the food they and their families will eat results in them viewing food in an entirely new way. If given the right ingredients, that act alone can raise the standards of the quality of the food both they and their family eat.”
#112: “If America’s Founding Fathers espoused openness to religion, creationism, and the Bible being taught in schools, then it beckons the question, Why don’t we?”
#108: “In ‘Expendables 2,’ there was a lot of vulgar dialogue in the screenplay. For this reason, many young people wouldn’t be able to watch this. But I don’t play in movies like this. Due to that, I said, ‘I won’t be a part of that if the hardcore language is not erased.'”
#106: “Unfortunately, in the entertainment field, sometimes you start believing your celebrity. You have a strong tendency to drift from the Lord, which I did. I did drift for a number of years.” (This man is honest.)
#100: “One night you’ll close your eyes, and when they open I’ll be there. It’ll be time to die.”
#98: “If some thug breaks into my home I can use my roundhouse kick, but I prefer he look down the barrel of my gun.”
There a lot more good ones. Have fun. It’s titled “138 Chuck Norris Quotes You Should Read Before He Bans You From The Internet.”
