    I use to work as a Round Square charity promotion guy, and at schools giving out presentation I always used Gandhi's quote, "The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others"- AKA, do lots of charity work.

    "Get busy living, or get busy dying.

    I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain.

    I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope." - Shawshank redemption

    ..I don't know but I just love this quote :love:

    I'm wondering what your favourite famous quote is? As I love hearing new ones! :gah:
    A lot I hear can generally make you feel better! :yep:

    Like one of mine is -
    You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.- Eleanor Roosevelt

    So what’s yours?
    I take it you mean quotation?

    Good old Oscar Wilde. He came up with a ton, actually, you should just Google him and see what comes up.

    "The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers." - Thomas Jefferson.

    I used it in one of my debates.

    Also, "Up they went and down they came without their eyes" - Plato (I think), but for me in the context of Flowers For Algernon.
