Favorite Quotes

Postby Pikachu_Master » Fri Oct 10, 2008 10:03 am

So, do you have any favorite quote(s)? What are they and who are they said by? Maybe it's a famous quote, or just something out of a book or movie.

These are my favorite famous quotations:
"No tears for the writer, no tears for the reader." - Robert Frost
"Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret." - Ambrose Bierce or Laurence J. Peter (not sure who said it first)
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle

I heard all these at school. The Robert Frost one from my English class, the Ambrose Bierce/Laurence J. Peter from my Algebra class, and the Aristotle one from my Band class. They are all banners in the classroom. =)

I like abraham lincoln's: "if this is coffee, please bring me some tea, but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee."

"You know, for as long as I can remember, I've had memories." - Colin Mochrie, doing the skit Greatest Hits on the improv show Whose Line is it Anyway?
(WLiiA is very funny. Colin Mochrie is one of my favorites, because he can keep a straight face and still be hilarious.)


"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." - Dr. Seuss
(I didn't come across this quote in its direct context; rather, I was reading the IM-style book l8r, g8r and one of the characters quotes it on the last page.)


"Well, I'm more lopsided than a one-legged badger. I think I shall just have to settle for hunting stupid mice. They won't stand a chance. I shall just walk up to them and sit on them till they surrender." - Graypaw, from the book Warriors: Into the Wild by Erin Hunter.
(Graypaw is so funny in the first book. 8D)


"We're not lovebirds!" - Danny Fenton & Sam Manson, in the episode Fanning the Flames on the television show Danny Phantom.
(I'm a huge DP fan, and a huge DannyXSam fan. They're in denial, I say! DENIAL! :D)

    "I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying." - Oscar Wilde

    "Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes." - Jack Handey

    "You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the heck she is." - Ellen DeGeneres

    "If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?" - Steven Wright

I've always kind of liked the quote
"And then the lion fell in love with the lamb"
or something around that. It's from the book Twilight.

From Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

""Fall down again, Bella?"
"No, Emmett, I punched a werewolf in the face."
That quote is sooo funny!

And I love this 1 2! I got a Twilight bookmark today and it said that :)
I like a lot more quotes from the Twilight series but it would take a while 2 write them all lol

* laughs hysterically * I love this thread!!

Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk,
my first instinct is to laugh.
But then I think, what if I was an ant, and she fell on me.
Then it wouldn't seem quite so funny.
- Jack Handey, Deep Thoughts

AND....

Quotes are nothing but inspiration for the uninspired.
-- Richard Kemph

:mrgreen: I've recently become obsessed with quotes... Jack Handey is my complete fav. :D Is he like a comedian or something?

Merry Christmas!

The merry family gatherings –
The old, the very young;
The strangely lovely way they
Harmonize in carols sung.
For Christmas is tradition time
Traditions that recall
The precious memories down the years,
The sameness of them all.

~Helen Lowrie Marshall~
