The repository contains six quotes from Bill Watterson.

Work

It’s only work if somebody makes you do it.

Family

I imagine it must be a great temptation to misuse one’s parental authority for private jokes.

Character

I don’t know which is worse: that everyone has his price, or that the price is always so low.

Work

Why should I have to work for everything? It’s like saying I don’t deserve it!

Reputation

They only recognize greatness when some authority confirms it.

Intelligence

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
