View Full Version : Favorite quote(s)?

What is your favorite quote(s)? I have a couple of quote that I like, like this one:

"A brilliant man would find a way not to fight a war."-Isoroku Yamamoto
This guy was the one who planned on the Pearl Harbor attack, but he didn't want to. He thought there was a way out of this than going into a fierce battle of war and death, but he had no choice. Isoroku thought this was the only way before any horrible bad deaths would happen.

Another one is:

:...Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."-John F. Kennedy
My favorite president... I did alot of reports on him and this is one of the best quotes I've heard.

Now post some of your favorite quotes. :)

There are a lot of inspirational quotes throughout history, whether they be from times of change, war or hardships there are just some people who know exactly what should be said. This is a thread for sharing some of your personal favourites and discussing others, I'll start the ball rolling.

What General Weygand has called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.
But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.
- Winston Churchill prior to the Battle of Britain.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe

Yeah... I know it's tacky since everyone quotes her, but she has such good quotes!

From months of studying To Kill A Mockingbird, I can assure you that Atticus has some of the best quotes ever:

On Courage ~
"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do."

On the knowledge of Children ~
"When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness' sake. But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em."

There are more. And one more is from Jem:

"I reckon there's just one kind of folks. Folks."

Which is a philosophy I try to live my life to.

I'll be moving this to Other Voting Polls, since quotes don't always come from books or movies, but real people.

Bob Dylan has some great ones.

"A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom."
"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do."
"Being noticed can be a burden. Jesus got himself crucified because he got himself noticed. So I disappear a lot."
"Colleges are like old-age homes, except for the fact that more people die in colleges."

All by Bob Dylan.
Lol sorry, been listening to alot of him lately.

Hmm, I gotta work on my quote document, but here's 2 random ones

Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'hate' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant for you. Hate. Hate. AM-I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

"Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adults themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence....When I was ten, I read fairytales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man, I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." C.S. Lewis

Not a serious one, but I like it none the less.

"It ain't Pokémon unless you can't walk diagonally."

Also, the whole scene with the Doctor owning the Atraxi with words at the end of Eleventh Hour.
