I love the quote by Walt Disney: "It's kind of fun to do the impossible."
"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition."
"That's what." -She
"Mistakes are the portals of discovery."
don't take this as pedantic, it's just a common error that no one knows they're making - "quotes" is a verb. "quotations" is the word you're looking for. :)
my favourite quotation, though, is this one from leo tolstoy's family happiness:
"I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor—such is my idea of happiness. And then, on top of all that, you for a mate, and children perhaps—what can more the heart of man desire?"
and also an arabic saying:
"Fear most the prayer of the oppressed."
Who is the oppressed?
the oppressed is the oppressed - whomever feels that they are being oppressed. the abused child, the citizens of a dictatorship, the jew in nazi germany.
The fag in Boise.
