Just as the subject says. Post some of your favorite quotes. I had more in mind of inspirational quotes but feel free to post comedic quotes too. Clean mind you!

I'll start us off.

"The first thing which I can record concerning myself is, that I was born. These are wonderful words. This life, to which neither time nor eternity can bring diminution - this everlasting living soul, began. My mind loses itself in these depths." - Groucho Marx

I love this thread already!!!! Great idea!!!!


Do your damnedest in an ostentatious manner all the time.


I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.


If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.


If we take the generally accepted definition of bravery as a quality which knows no fear, I have never seen a brave man. All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are, the more they are frightened.



All by George S. Patton

A woman in love can't be reasonable - or she probably wouldn't be in love.

Personality is the glitter that sends your little gleam across the footlights and the orchestra pit into that big black space where the audience is.

Yes, this is a great thread idea, IP.

I also have a favorite Groucho quote:

"I wouldn't want to belong to any club that would accept me as a member."

"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation.

Herbert Spencer

I also love quotes by Dorothy Parker. Here's a good 'un:

"She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B."

(speaking of Katharine Hepburn)

Great quotes by a great man, Patton. I like that one by Maya Angelou too...

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt
"Citizenship in a Republic,"
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

"I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this Government: 'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.' We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."

Winston Churchill
May 13, 1940
