I like a lot of Churchill quotes: "Never before was so much owed by so many to so few", and on the lighter side: "Yes, I may be drunk now, but in the morning I shall wake up sober, but you will still be ugly!"
Oh, and of course, Boris Johnson: [Talking to the Olympic athletes] "You helped inspire a generation, and probably create one!"

"Norway?! Norway isn't a member of the European Union " - Blair
but seriously it would probably be:

‘I came here to do more than just eat and ****!’ - Chairman Mao
(When Mao and Stalin set thier first meeting at the Kremlin. Stalin wanted to make sure he was seen as the top man as communist leaders go, so he delayed the meeting after Mao had arrived by 6 days. Mao reportedly shouted this when he realised he was being insulted)

"...by a free country I mean a country where people are allowed, so long as they do not hurt their neighbours, to do as they like. I do not mean a country where six men may make five men do exactly as they like. That is not my notion of freedom."
-Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury
"The tyranny of a multitude is a multiplied tyranny."
"False opinions are like false money, struck first of all by guilty men and thereafter circulated by honest people who perpetuate the crime without knowing what they are doing."
-Joseph-Marie, Comte de Maistre
"One death is a tragedy. One million deaths is a statistic."
"Not by speeches and votes of the majority, are the great questions of the time decided... but by iron and blood."
-Otto Fürst von Bismarck
"For the Lawes of Nature (as Justice, Equity, Modesty, Mercy, and (in summe) Doing To Others, As Wee Would Be Done To,) if themselves, without the terrour of some Power, to cause them to be observed, are contrary to our naturall Passions, that carry us to Partiality, Pride, Revenge, and the like. And Covenants, without the Sword, are but Words, and of no strength to secure a man at all."
"A war is never undertaken by the ideal State, except in defense of its honour or its safety."

"The fascists are scum - scum of the earth. If you step in something dirty, you don't just say 'how nasty!' - you wipe away every trace of that dirt. We must fight the fascist menace in every way that we possibly can."
- Brian Clough
"If there is a State, there must be domination of one class by another and, as a result, slavery; the State without slavery is unthinkable – and this is why we are the enemies of the State."
- Mikhail Bakunin
"We are convinced that liberty without socialism is privilege and injustice; and that socialism without liberty is slavery and brutality."
- Mikhail Bakunin
"Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who have had the fortune of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all the others."
- Emma Goldman
"The mine owners did not find the gold, they did not mine the gold, they did not mill the gold, but by some weird alchemy all the gold belonged to them!"
- Bill Haywood
"The means of production being the collective work of humanity, the product should be the collective property of the race. Individual appropriation is neither just nor serviceable. All belongs to all. All things are for all men, since all men have need of them, since all men have worked in the measure of their strength to produce them, and since it is not possible to evaluate every one's part in the production of the world's wealth."
- Peter Kropotkin
"Humanity can not be made equal by declarations on paper. Unless the material conditions for equality exist, it is worse than mockery to pronounce men equal."
- Voltairine de Cleyre
"Communism is the foundation of all human sociability. It is what makes society possible."

Two from Michael Foot that have always stuck with me -
