Cool 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!

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

Exclamation

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!

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.

To be honest I keep a journal of my favorite quotes. I could go on forever. I just wanted to end with these two.

"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.

"I'd love to be the one to disappoint you when I don't fall down." -- Limp Biskit

"Not all who wander are lost." -- J.R.R. Tolkein

"Through the too many miles and the too little smiles, I still remember you." -- Harry Chapin

"No straight lines make up my life and all my roads have bends; there's no clear cut beginnings -- and so far no dead ends." -- Harry Chapin

"I don't know anyone who is without love. I don't know if you can live without it. We don't see it. We just count on its being there." -- Maya Angelo (I think)

"Crying is what we do before we are broken." -- from A Density of Souls by Christopher Rice

"True strength is rarely recognized and, as such, passes utterly unnoticed." no clue

"I could hate and live in shadow or forgive and live my life in peace." -- I don't remember her name, but it's the response a Holocaust survivor gave when someone asked her whether she forgave the soldiers that ran the camp she was at (and, I believe, killed some, if not all, of her family)

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." -- from Me and Bobby McGee made most popular by Janis Joplin

"Anyone can write but it takes brilliance to bring life to the pages." -- no clue

"A heart can be broken, but it will keep beating just the same." -- Ninny Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes

and, just because it makes me laugh,

“Why? What’s the worst he can do? Jump up and down screaming ‘Kill him! Kill him!’?” -- from The Nekkid Quidditch Match, one of the absolute funniest things I've ever read. If you at ALL like Harry Potter and need a laugh? Go read it.



Is it obvious I'm a quote junkie? My "quote file" on my computer is 50 pages of 8 point type with .5 margins. I collect quotes (and yes, I have many Gravekeeper quotes in my quote file).
