Just reading through a book I've been keeping for 6 months. Basically, everytime I find a quote I like, I add it. Anyway. What are your personal favourite quotes?

Mine are:

Being bored shows a lack of imagination.

If you never fail, you're not trying hard enough.

Only two things are infinite: The universe and human stupidity. I'm not too sure about the former (Einstein)

I used to suffer from schizophrenia. We're fine now.

It's not what happens to you. It's what you do with what happens to you. (Aldous Huxley)

If you're not confused, you're not paying attention. (Tom Peters)

No one is listening until you make a mistake

I'm a homocidal maniac- They look just like everyone else (Wendy- The Addams family)

Actually, I have a website full of the stupidest things I've heard from people at school.

Among the best:

"Some dolphins wear shoes. In shows, and that".
"Of course I can hear you. I'm not blind"
"Smells like holy water".

And a whole lot more.

I love quotes from Blackadder;

"I have a plan, and it's as hot as my pants, woof!!" Oh I love Blackadder..
" We're in the stickiest situation since Sticky the Stick Insect got stuck on a sticky bun."

I also love this quote "Politicians like to panic, they need activity. It's their substitute for achievement" which is from Yes Minister

ok i also have a long document on oc of quotes, but here are a few i like best:

There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so

If you’re not living on the edge then you’re taking up too much room

In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king

Mathematics is merely a form of mental masturbation

War does not determine who’s right, only who’s left

Talent does what it can but genius does what it must

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it doesn’t go away

Trying is the first step towards failure

We are all mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed on manure

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

It is only when you have lost everything that you can do anything

If you’re going through hell, keep going

Ambition is a poor excuse for not having sense enough to be lazy

Time is never wasted when you’re wasted all the time

If you cannot hope for order, withdraw with style from the chaos

The sky’s the limit, but what’s the point if we can’t fly?

If your main ambition is to succeed then ultimately you have failed

You can’t go off the rails if you’ve never been on them

You’ll never get to heaven if you’re scared of getting high

In the beginning the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry and has widely been regarded as a bad move

Ok sorry that turned into a few too many!
