I wasn't really sure where to put this, but this thread is basically dedicated to quotes that you find, inspiring, funny, thought-provoking, etc. I'll start off with a few:

"Every man is guilty of all the good he didn't do."
- Voltaire

"It will be gone by June."
- Variety magazine (1955), on rock 'n' roll

"With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."
- Max Ehrmann

"'God is dead.' - Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1885)
'Nietzsche is dead. - God' - Nietzsche's epitah (1900)"

"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetuate it."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer."
- Muhammad Ali

"This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs: when he first appears he is a protector."
- Plato, Republic

"However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on them?"
- Siddartha Gautama, 'the Buddha'

"Death twitches my ear. 'Live,' he says. 'I am coming.'"
- Virgil

"Glory is fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever."
- Napoleon Bonaparte

Interesting topic Everlong! My personal favorites include (Not always from memory Embarassed ) -

"It is not the critic who counts....The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."

~Theodore Roosevelt

When everyone's special, no one is.

~Syndrome, The Incredibles

Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not becuase they are nice, but because you are.

~Author Unknown

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."

~Albert Einstein

"The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility."

~Albert Einstein

"Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."

~Albert Einstein

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

~Albert Einstein


Also, G.K. Chesterton, who probably deserves his own post -


"Christianity has not been tried and found wanting. Rather, it has been found difficult, and left untried."

"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."

"To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it."

"We do not need to get good laws to restrain bad people. We need to get good people to restrain us from bad laws."

“Do not be so open-minded that your brains fall out."

"Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all."

“In prosperity, our friends know us. In adversity, we know our friends”

“There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.”

“By a curious confusion, many modern critics have passed from the proposition that a masterpiece may be unpopular to the other proposition that unless it is unpopular it cannot be a masterpiece.”

“The thing I hate about an argument is that it always interrupts a discussion.”

Fantastic Theodore Roosevelt quote there Smashed, I have that in my profile, and in my signature for my Yahoo! email account. Words to live by, I think.
