    A nifty section in Facebook is favourite quotes. What are some of yours?

    My personal favourite is this one, from an essay by Carl Sagan, his thoughts on the furthest image of our own planet that we have

    "There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

    Anyone got any other good ones?

    "Well, I can't believe the stuff that is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. And I can't believe that both I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and the stuff that I can't believe is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter are both, in fact, not butter. And I believe... they both might be butter... in a cunning disguise. And, in fact, there's a lot more butter around than we all thought there was."

    “Scientists tell us that the fastest animal on earth, with a top speed of 120 feet per second, is a cow that has been dropped out of a helicopter.”

    “We Americans live in a nation where the medical-care system is second to none in the world, unless you count maybe 25 or 30 little scuzzball countries like Scotland that we could vaporize in seconds if we felt like it”

    “The problem with writing about religion is that you run the risk of offending sincerely religious people, and then they come after you with machetes.”

    “Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.”

    Oh, Dave Barry...

    My favourite has to be the ancient Chinese proverb:

    "Man who sleep with itchy bottom wakes up with smelly finger"

    God bless the Chinese :top2:

    EDIT: It's Confucius!

    I have loads of favourite quotes... none too philosophical, I might add. Here are a few.

    "This is the male Velcro: it has hard, sticky-outy bits. This is the female Velcro: it's all soft and furry. You stick the male Velcro here, and the female Velcro goes on top."

    "That looks kind of phallic. Oh, wait, it's pi."

    "Where? When?" - my brother's response to my text telling him there was a lunar eclipse that night.

    Homogenous: "It's pronounced hom-o-gen-uss, not homo-genius. We're not talking about a clever poof."

    Edit: Heh.. everyone else is posting quotes of well-known people. Oh well.

    But really I just love Bertrand Russell's quotes. :love:
