    I have no idea who says it or if it is very popular, but I have a quote saved that I found on the internet and I really like it
    "Don't let today's disappointments cast a shadow on tomorrow's dreams."

    If it's not broken, don't fix it and if it is broken, just ignore it and hope it'll be OK.

    Don't have one but I like this:
    "If you don't love yourself, you can't love nobody
    If you don't know yourself, then you nobody"
    Chuck D
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qokUi_c7a3I
    It sounds better spoken and is mad poetic.
    Also, a more 'conventional' one:
    "Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."
    Wrongly attributed to Sun Tzu.

    “The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.” - Banksy

    Maybe not my favourite quote ever, but today I like it

    I don't really have an all-time favourite, but I'll pick a few that stand out in my mind

    "Falling is like flying just with a more permanent destination" - Jim Moriarty, Sherlock.
    "I may be on the side of the angels, but don't think for one second that I am one of them" - Sherlock.

    "If I started to do something that displeased you and you threatened me with failure, I was so much in awe of your opinion that failure, perhaps even if only much later, was inevitable. I lost confidence in doing anything for myself. I was unsettled, full of doubts. The older I got, the more evidence you could hold against me as proof of my uselessness; in some sense, gradually, you actually came to be right in the end." - Franz Kafka, Letter to his Father.

    "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I know it's lame, cliché and incredibly dull but it's the basis for most of my political philosophy as well as my general outlook on life.

    (Original post by Ferrero Rocher)
    To be fair, almost anything said by Voltaire. :bandit:

    “The secret of being a bore is to tell everything.” - Voltaire

    “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.” - Voltaire

    “God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.” - Voltaire.



    “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” - George Eliot.
    Yes! I'm a huge voltaire fan, read candid at 14 and was immdietly in love with philosophy and literature!

    Also, 'crush the infamous', can aply to so mnay things not just catholicism, but to all insidious organisations!

    Your a good one you are!
