Here's a thread for any quotes we comes across where the speaker (should be renown) invokes the image of a cephalopod...

"Oh, I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug 10 people at a time!"
-- Drew Barrymore, Actress

THE OCTOPUS

Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I'd call me Us.

- Ogden Nash

Another one:

"Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There's plenty of movement, but you never know if it's going to be forward, backwards, or sideways."

-H. Jackson Brown, Jr. (bestselling author of Life's Little Instruction Book)
