    Your favorite Quotes, Please!! Thank You!
    Possibly my all time favourite quote comes from the Sci Fi series Andromeda

    It is simply

    "While I admit the universe does have a sense of humour, I doubt very much this is a joke. "

    It is very fitting when having a bad day.
    "I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
    It'll happen to you too."

    Freedom is not an ideal located outside the individual person. It is rather the indispensable condition for which the human being quests for completion.

    Thanks Dbecker0922, I gave a hug to a woman today who buried her husband last week with your quote in my head. When I got home I put it up on my website. It is a very profound and true statement. Again my thanks!!

    Henry Ford made many popular quotes:

    Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.

    Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.

    Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

    Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

    More quotes by Henry Ford can be found here.

    I don't know who wrote all these quotes, perhaps you can search them up on the net but I found them rather good and have saved them for myself over time in a textfile.

    Sexy Unix Commands: date; unzip; touch; strip; finger; mount; gasp; yes; uptime;

    Did you ever walk in a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives.

    Democracy: Where any two idiots outvote a genius.

    Sex is like hacking. You get in, you get out, and you hope you didn't leave something behind that can be traced back to you.

    I once thought that I had made a mistake, but I was mistaken.

    Delusions are often functional. A mother's opinions about her children's beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth.

    The old believe everything, the middle- aged suspect everything, the young know everything

    Amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

    The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

    Everyone must believe in something. I believe I'll have another drink.

    When there's a will, I want to be in it.

    Life is a sexually transmitted disease with 100% mortality.

    Basic Definitions of Science: If it's green or wiggles, it's biology. If it stinks, it's chemistry. If it doesn't work, it's physics.

    Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

    House Guarded By Shotgun 3 Days A Week. Guess Which Days.

    Knowledge is realizing that the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway

    Parents spend the first part of our lives teaching us to walk and talk, and the rest of it telling us to sit down and shut up.

    Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.

    I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

    Actual Headline: Joint Committee Investigates Marijuana Use

    Don't drink and park - accidents cause people.

    Solution to two of the world's problems: Feed the homeless to the hungry.

    life, n.: A whim of several billion cells to be you for a while

    A woman broke up with me and sent me pictures of her and her new boyfriend in bed together. Solution?? I sent them to her dad.

    Friendships last when each friend thinks he has a slight superiority over the other.

    It may look like I'm doing nothing, but I'm actively waiting for my problems to go away.

    A bank is an institution which lends money to one who proves he does not need it.

    I cannot give you formula 4 success. But I can give you formula 4 failure - 'Try to please everyone'.
