    I love quotes. I have a book of them that I've written down through the years, actually, several books about half-full, lol. So I thought I'd find a way to collect some more. What are some of y'alls favorite quotes?

    My current favorite one:

    Some people are like slinkies. Not much good for anything, but you can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    In my Math class my teacher has a poster of Albert Einstein and it says:

    "Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater."

    I smile everytime I see it. :p

    I thought this was some kind of bi-lingual message thread. Thon is tuna en francais. But I guess this isn't Quote-a-tuna!

    OK, here is one, I have one of those daily desk calendars with quotes of Eastern wisdom. A few days ago I got this one.

    Wherever there is attachment
    Association with it
    Brings endless misery.

    -- Gampopa

    Now Gampopa was a Tibetan Buddhist who died in 1153, but I couldn't help but think that he meant an e-mail virus!

    Something I heard in church today; the pastor was using "Cowboy Wisdom"! :eek:

    It's a lot easier to let the cat out of the bag than to try to put it back in

    and with that came

    Never take sleeping pills and Ex-lax on the same day

    Comedian Steven Wright has some of the best quotes I've heard. Here's a couple of my favourites:

    "The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up."

    "The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."

    "Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire."

    Hey lord-darkhelmet,

    I like your signature. One of my favourite highlights of Dragon*Con last year was hearing Bill Mumy (one half of Barnes & Barnes) perform Fish Heads live.

    We all sang along. :)


    Oh, umm a quote (back on topic):

    I you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?

    Woofer, that sounds like it was pretty cool. Fish Heads is a great sing-along song.

    Another quote:

    "Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it."

    Winston Churchill has to be my favorite person to quote, since Simpson and Family guy quotes don't really seem approchiate at this time ;)

    We are all worms, I however, believe I am a glow worm

    Woman, to Churchill If I were you wife I would poision your drink!

    Churchill Madame, If I were you husband, I would drink it

    Oh, and can't forget, although completely unrelated...

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by frost.
    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken:
    The crownless again shall be king.
