Rules:

1) A published (i.e., verifiable) quotation will be posted. Without cheating (such as searching online), participants are invited to guess who uttered (or wrote) the quotation.

2) The person who posted the quotation will confirm which of the participants was first to correctly identify the source of the quotation. (Posters and others can follow the topic and receive instant notifications of new posts.)

3) The winning participant will then post the next quotation.

4) Please don't quote Haman, Hitler, or other Amalekites.

 

 

For the first quotation, let's start with a very easy one:

 

"I’m standing there with my tits out, dressed like a butterfly. How the f**k is that fair? How am I so lucky?"

R' Akiva?

 

No. That was a good guess, as R' Akiva was a very modest man. But R' Akiva didn't speak English (as it hadn't developed yet). Please try again, or is there anyone else who would care to venture a guess?

Michelle Obama?

 

No. I know that the First Lady has worn many designer outfits, but I don't know if any of them had her dressed as an insect, animal, etc.

 

I did not imagine that my initial contest entry would be so challenging to answer correctly (without cheating).

If either of these costume choices was unique to a single person it would be easier without cheating. Or even the both of them together. Anyway, if I wasn't cheating I would say it's a quote from "Monty Python's Previous Record"
Poe's law: without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between sincere extremism and an exaggerated parody of extremism.

Warren, it was not John Cleese or others from Monty Python.

 

Milton, it was not Gisele, though that is close enough. (It was Miley Cyrus.)

 

Milton can now post the next quotation.

That wasn't a guess. The cover of the album has a drawing of a naked mammalian butterfly

Thank you for clarifying. Do you suppose that Miley Cyrus is a fan of ancient Monty Python record albums?

I guess I need to provide a hint. WWII related, during the Battle of the Bulge.

As the winner, I guess it's my turn, so here's the next quote:

 

"[Regarding] a house in which there is no cat, one should not enter it in darkness. What is the reason? Perhaps a snake will wrap itself around him, and he will not realize and become endangered."

Is it Talmudic? I would think that any snake capable of endangering a man would more easily endanger a cat.

It's Talmudic. To narrow it down further, it's in Tractate Pesachim. I don't think it implies a pro-cat (or anti-snake) viewpoint, it's merely giving advice.
