Always an interesting one. Question: have ya ever seen Bono and Richard Dawkins in the same room together...?

No, but I'd love nothing more.  All love and respect to Bono, but Mr. Dawkins would crush him...bet we'd end up with a deliciously badass album afterwards, though...

a little knowledge can go a long way
a lot of professionals are crackpots
a name means a lot just by itself
a positive attitude means all the difference in the world
a relaxed man is not necessarily a better man
a sense of timing is the mark of genius
a sincere effort is all you can ask
a single event can have infinitely many interpretations
a strong sense of duty imprisons you
absolute submission can be a form of freedom
abstraction is a type of decadence
abuse of power comes as no surprise
action causes more trouble than thought
alienation produces eccentrics or revolutionaries
ambition is just as dangerous as complacency
ambivalence can ruin your life
anger or hate can be a useful motivating force
anything is a legitimate area of investigation
bad intentions can yield good results
being judgmental is a sign of life
being sure of yourself means you're a fool
believing in rebirth is the same as admitting defeat
boredom makes you do crazy things
calm is more conductive to creativity than is anxiety

Bono in the back of a Limousine saying:-

"When we were No 1 in America with WOWY, we went to Vegas to see Frank Sinatra perform.

He asked us to stand up in front of the audience and he said:-

"You haven't spent a damn cent on your clothes!"

Well now I am the Fly with full on limos and as much excess as I can possibly have..

So Frankie...

I want to prove the lies (of being a rock n roll star) by living them"

I once watched the Sydney dvd frame by frame and wrote down a lot of the things that flash on screen.  I think evel12314 posted most of these, but there might be a few that he didn't.

Manipulation is art
Death is a career move
Rebellion is packaged
Religion is a club
Reject your weakness
Contradiction is balance
Evolution is over
Service not included
Everything you know is wrong
Death is inevitable
This is not a rehearsal
Ambition bites the nails of success
Taste is the enemy of art
Believe everything
Watch more TV
BeLIEve

freedom has the scent of a new-born baby's head

oh, wait ... that's a slogan from later on in their career ;)

Some of the lyrics from the HTDAAB album, including the title itself, sound like they originate from right off the screens of ZOO TV.

^Mirrorball Man. Gotta love that build up.

A Bono quote: "Hello? Is this Speedy Pizza? I'd like to order 10,000 pizzas for Detroit. We're at the Palace. D'a know the Palace? Yeah, I AM serious. I'm very serious. You can't make 10,000? Just make as many as you can. OK. What? My name is Bono." - Zoo TV tour, March 27 1992
