    Quotes

    Movies or TV show quotes. Inspirational quotes. Pretty much sayings you would like to run your life by.

    Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender:
    [spoiler:qefunuxy]"There are reasons each of us are born. We have to find those reasons."

    "Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not." -

    "It is usually best to admit mistakes when they occur, and to seek to restore honour." -

    "While it is always best to believe in one's self, a little help from others can be a great blessing."

    "There's nothing wrong with a life of peace and prosperity. I suggest you think about what it is that you want from your life, and why." -

    "You must never give into despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength." -

    "Always thinking you need to do things on your own without anyone's support. There is nothing wrong with letting people who love you, help you." -

    "It is important to draw wisdom from different places. If you take it from only one place it becomes rigid and stale." -[/spoiler:qefunuxy]

    I'll post some of my favourites when I remember them.

    "But I being poor, have only my dreams, I have spread my dreams under your feet, tread softly because you tread on my dreams."
    - W.B. Yeats.

    “Obsessed is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.” - No idea where this one came from originally, but Zyzz noted it as his favourite quote ever.

    - Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Wow, that is really amazing.

    And Strider, I love that one, but it is over used in texts and such.

    Yeah, it's become very cliché. It's a fantastic quote nevertheless.

    Re: Quotes

    "I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom." -Abraham Lincoln

    and even though I'm not over religious, I love this passage:

    "Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me." - Psalm 23:4

    "I like turtles." - Jonathan the zombie kid

    But seriously, my favourite would be

    "If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done."
    - Thomas Jefferson


    Really pushes me to do shit and take risks

    "Inserting a banana in your ass hurts in the beginning, but you'll get used to it."
    - Leviticus 45:12


    Oh shut up.

    It represents the fact that sometimes things seem tough in the beginning, but after a while, it's not all that bad.

    Re: Quotes

    Churchill has to be up there.

    "Never was so much owed by so many to so few."

    "From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I shall not put."

    "Nancy Astor: “Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison.”
    Churchill: “If I were your husband I would take it.”"

    "History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."

    "You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they’ve tried everything else."

    "Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen."


    To name a few. <:
