    "In nature, there's no blemish but the mind: None can be call'd deform'd but the unkind." - Will Shakesphere

    "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions,and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

    Listed below are some of my personal faviourite quotes. I haven't written who I have quoted them from, as most of them are from memory and I can't remember everything.
    Something fun you can do is see how many of the following quotes you can use in one conversation (it doesn't matter if the subject matter isn't relevant).

    "That which does not kill me can only make me stronger"

    "I never think of the future - it arrives soon enough."

    "The only difference between me and a madman is that I'm not mad!"

    "Be nice to people on the way up, because you meet them again on the way down."

    "To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance."

    "Maybe this world is another world's hell."

    "When you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss also gazes into you."

    "I think therefore I am."

    "Knowledge is power."

    "If stupidity got me into this mess, then why can't it get me out?"

    "Victory goes to the player who makes the next to last mistake."

    "I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that its not to enjoy ourselves."

    "I shall not waste my days by trying to prolong them."

    "Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens."

    "All are lunatics, but those who can analyse their delusion are called philosophers."

    "Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names."

    "If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?"

    "God is too fond of a joke."

    "Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate."

    "When choosing between two evils, I always go with the one I've never tried before."

    "Nothing is wrong with Calafornia that a rise in the ocean level wouldn't cure."

    "I never let schooling interfere with my education."

    "The best way to predict the future is to cause it."

    "The average person thinks he isn't."

    "After I die, I'd rather people ask why I have no monument than why I do have one."

    "Women was God's second mistake."

    "Hell is other people."

    "The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other ******* die for his."

    "When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail."

    "Take not a musket to kill a butterfly."

    "In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is."

    "If you can't get rid of that skeleton is the closet, then you'd best teach it to dance."

    "Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."

    "Life is pleasant, death is peaceful, its the transition that causes the problems."

    "Wise men make proverbs, but fools repeat them."

    "We're all going to hell and I'm driving the bus!"

    Sincerely,
    GC White

    You're a prick.

    The reason you haven't given the person who made the quite is because you have gone to a famous quote site, and copied it from there.
