    Favorite Quotes

    There's quotable quotes all over the place, and personally, I love them. So, what are your favorites?

    One on my Global quiz the other day:
    "I may not agree with a word you say, but I'll fight to the death for your right to say it." by a philosopher named Voltaire from the Enlightenment.
    "There's an old Earth saying, Captain. A phrase of great power and wisdom. A consolation to the soul, in times of need: ALLONS-Y!"~Doctor Who

    That is a quote I have remembered for more than forty years and still treasure.
    "Say the Word"

    When I saw this thread, this is the first quote that popped in to my mind:

    "No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."--John Donne, 1623.
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Well said. Also a quote I remember quite well. An excellent piece of advice, and as I recall the source of inspiration for Hemmingway's novel "For Whom the Bell Tolls."

    I really liked it when I read it-it's so powerful. And I was hoping I'd get the quiz back to have it, but luckily I remembered it.

    Another few:
    "Intellectual faith brings you to the water, but heart-to-heart faith let's you jump in."-my old Religion teacher.

    "No day but today."-Rent

    "To deny yourself is to deny the truth."-Lyric from a song.
    "There's an old Earth saying, Captain. A phrase of great power and wisdom. A consolation to the soul, in times of need: ALLONS-Y!"~Doctor Who

    A couple from one of my all-time favourite t.v. shows:

    "To boldly go where no one has gone before."

    "Make it so."

    A personal favorite of mine.

    "The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."- George Carlin.

    Uhm, in regards to a more serious quote that's a personal fave of mine...

    "Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life."- Doctor David M. Burns.

    And while it's from a video game, I can't help but find one quote I recently heard in Final Fantasy X to be positively uplifting and motivational.

    "Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!" Auron of Final Fantasy X.

    This is one of my brother's favourites:
