    Post your favorite quotes

    What are some of your favorite quotes? And who said them?

    Here are a couple of mine:

    Never give in, never give in, never never never.
    Winston Churchill

    I may not agree with what you say, but I will fight for your right to say it.
    Don't remember who it was that said this but it is one of my favorites

    RE: Post your favorite quotes

    absolute power corrupts absolutely -don't know who
    absence of proof does not mean proof of absence - don't know who
    reality is only a illusion -Einstein
    the ones we wish could hear us have heard it all before- Neil Peart

    i'm too tired to remember any more, as you can see I also write my own.

    RE: Post your favorite quotes

    You're not paranoid if they ARE out to get you. - Foxy

    Be entirely tolerant or not at all, follow the good path or the evil one. To stand at the crossroads requires more strength than you possess. - Henrich Heine

    "Mr Churchill, you are DRUNK!"
    "Indeed my lady, but you are ugly. Tomorrow I shall be sober." - Winston Churchill in British Parliament during the Second World War.

    And of course the classic...Kurt Vonnegut's MIT Acceptance speech...attributed to Kurt Vonnegut incorrectly (this quote has a double meaing on top of all the messages within, that you should not believe what you read on the internet. While being a great piece, it was not written or delivered by Kurt Vonnegut, rather by a relatively unknown journalist named Mary Schmich).

    Wear sunscreen.

    If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.

    Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded. But trust me, in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked. You are not as fat as you imagine.

    Don't worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday.

    Do one thing every day that scares you.

    Sing.

    Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.

    Floss.

    Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself.

    Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

    Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.

    Stretch.

    Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't.

    Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees. You'll miss them when they're gone.

    Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either. Your choices are half chance. So are everybody else's.

    Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it or of what other people think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

    Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

    Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

    Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly.

    Get to know your parents. You never know when they'll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings. They're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

    Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.

    Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard. Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel.

    Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. You, too, will get old. And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble, and children respected their elders.

    Respect your elders.

    Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund. Maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse. But you never know when either one might run out.

    Don't mess too much with your hair or by the time you're 40 it will look 85.

    Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    But trust me on the sunscreen."

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I’m afraid of widths.
    Comedian Steven Wright

    A word to the wise ain’t necessary – it’s the stupid ones that need the advice.
    Don't remember who said it

    The future ain't what it used to be
    When you come to a fork in the road....Take it
    Yogi Berra

    Although prepared for martyrdom, I preferred that it be postponed.
    From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.
    It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.
    Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
    The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
    Winston Churchill

    A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.

    RE: Post your favorite quotes

    eddieC - Correct!

    The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.
