Your All-Time Favorite Quotes!
This is a "game" thread that proved popular on another forum I go to, so I'm starting it up here! :D

The idea behind this thread is simple: Post your favorite quotes! :)

But since they ARE quotes, it would be nice if you let us know who or where your quote comes from, mmm-kay? ;)

I'll start off with one of the greatest things ever written in any fantasy novel...

The Wizard's First Rule:

"People are stupid. Given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they're afraid it might be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."

--From Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind

"Yeah, I always find myself questioning the way I imagine my myths when I'm eating my Lucky Charms every morning with a goddamned Black Santa spoon!"- Rader from John Green's Paper Towns

"Life is like baseball. For the most part, nothing happens. Then there are moments, days, that you spend in utter glory. Or utter shit"-Desmond McKay from Black Irish

Some more faves...
  • "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."
    --Albert Einstein
  • "This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays."
    --Arthur Dent, from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by the Late, Great Douglas Adams
  • "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."
    --Bruce (AKA David) Banner, from The Incredible Hulk
  • "I am NOT the man with whom to fuck!"
    --Frank Elgyn (Michael Wincott), from Alien Resurrection
I especially like that last one! I saw the movie one time, in the theater, over 10 years ago, and I STILL remember that line! :D

Sadly, in my case, the ladies have interpreted that line in entirely the wrong way. :(

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." - Mark Twain

"The Rule of Nature is 'Survive'. The Rule of Man is 'Obey'. But the Rule of God is 'Love'." - from a cheap 70's horror movie called "The Night God Screamed"... I don't know why, but I've always liked that line. I'm not 100% on the quote, though... it's either Rule or Law.

I used to have a big text file of quotes I loved, but forgot to back it up. And now it's gone.

Here's a couple i could remember

This [a bible] is not a weapon... You idiot!
- Mary, Saved

From the movie Saved. It also has applications in real life

and from The Gruen Transfer, a television series about advertising, how it works, and how it works on you

"It's like trying to get laid by showing a girl your resume.
Look I was good at biology and woodwork so I know where stuff is and I'm good with my hands"
"...You know that might actually work."
- The Gruen Transfer, Dan Gregory & Wil Anderson

and pretty much anything from Terry Pratchett :)

My all time favorites.

"I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams." - Hamlet

"Try not. Do. Or do not. There is not try." --Yoda, "The Empire Strikes Back.

“Naturally the common people don't want war.... That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along.... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” --Hermann Goering.

"Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." --Benjamin Franklin.

"Make the suspension adjustable and they will adjust it wrong -- look what they can do to a Weber carburetor in just a few moments of stupidity with a screwdriver." --Colin Chapman (founder, Lotus Cars)

"If God had meant for us to walk, why did he give us feet that fit car pedals?" -- Sir Stirling Moss
