I'm the same and films, and books...people usually have no idea what I'm talking about lol. I won't go into those.

One of my favourites is from Jimi Hendrix - "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."

"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are." - Kurt Cobain

And a funny one... "Friends are like bras - close to your heart and there for support."

I love quotes.
I have a million in my About Me. But I think my current favorite is the one in my sig.
It's from Secret Window (which is one of the best movies evar). It just really makes me think.

I've been watching a lot of One Tree Hill lately and they have some awesome quotes..

"At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world, some are running scared, some are coming home, some tell lies to make it through the day, others are just not facing the truth, some are evil men at war with good, and some are good struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world, six billion souls, and sometimes, all you need is one"

"Every song has an ending, but is that any reason not to enjoy the music?"

I love quotes, and little sayings. I have a ton of books filled with quotes, and a bunch saved to my computer.

One of my favorites ever is the one I have in my signature. "Being someone's friend isn't about what you should have done. It's about what you do" It is from a TV show, Kyle XY.

I'll try and post some more later.

I found one that really touched me whilst I was doing my Classics homework a while back. “May those who love prosper; let them perish who cannot love; let them perish twice over who veto love.” - it's grafittied on the wall of the Hous of Caecilius in Pompeii

One quote that I try to live by is "The Golden Rule" my parents always told me to that one should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
My second favorite one that I've been trying to apply to my life is the one on my signature. Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.

'If I had a formula for bypassing trouble, I would not pass it round. Trouble creates a capacity to handle it. I don't embrace trouble; that's as bad as treating it as an enemy. But I do say meet it as a friend, for you'll see a lot of it and had better be on speaking terms with it.'

Re: What is your favourite quote? - February 27th 2011, 12:03 AM

There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honored by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.
~One Tree Hill

You ever look a picture of yourself, and see a stranger in the background?. It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other peoples life have we been in. Were we a part of someone's life when their dream came true or were we there when their dream died. Did we keep trying to get in? As if we were somehow destined to be there or did the shot take us by surprise. Just think, you could be a big part of someone elses life, and not even know it.
~One Tree Hill

You know it's been said that we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they are happening. We grow complacent with ideas, or things or people and we take them for granted and it's usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you that you've realized how wrong you've been that you realized how much you need it, how much you love it.
~One Tree Hill

Every once in a while people step up, they rise above themselves. Sometimes they surprise you, and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes, it can push pretty hard, but if you look close enough you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you're lucky, and if you're the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.
~One Tree Hill

Every song has a CODA, a final movement. Whether it fades out or crashes away. Every song ends. Is that any reason not to enjoy the music? The truth is, there is nothing to be afraid of. It's just life.
~One Tree Hill

At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes -- all you need is one.
~One Tree Hill

What a frightening thing the human is, a mass of gauges and dials and registers, and we can read only a few and those perhaps not accurately.
~One Tree Hill

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours.
~One Tree Hill

Most people are strong. Most people are stronger than they know. They just forget to believe in it sometimes.

Happiness comes in many forms -- in the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else's dream come true, or in the promise of hope renewed. It's okay to let yourself be happy because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be.
Have you ever wondered what marks our time here? If one life can really make an impact on the world? Or if the choices we make matter? I believe they do. And I believe that one man can change many lives... for better or worse!

Truth is still absolute. Believe that. Even when that truth is hard and cold, and more painful than you've ever imagined. And even when truth is more cruel than any lie.

Most of our lives are a series of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.

Okay slight quote addiction and slightly like one tree hill haha. I'll post more later maybe but I've got a whole document of them and book with them written down

Ooh, I remembered another one!

"If you never knew sorrow, how can you know what's in true happiness?"

It's from an Anna tsuchiya song

Re: What is your favourite quote? - March 1st 2011, 01:30 AM

I have many favorite quotes. Everytime I find one I write it down.

Some of my favorites:

"If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose." -Charles Bukowski

"If someone were to harm my family or a friend or somebody I love - I would eat them. I might end up in jail for 500 years - but I would eat them" -Johnny Depp

“The true genius shudders at incompleteness - and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be.” -Edgar Allen Poe

“The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age." -Lucille Ball

"Do or do not. There is no try." -Yoda (also my favorite teacher constantly told us this.)


I've plenty of others, but those are the best ones I came across first in my collection.


-Let the Music Play-
"There's no way to explain why life is filled with so much pain. But do the flowers ever grow in the places it don't rain?"

"But the unfortunate truth is that, while being different from everyone else can be exciting at first, ultimately it can get a little lonely."

"The floor seemed wonderfully solid. It was comforting to know I had fallen and could fall no further."

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
— Marilyn Monroe

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

Okay, okay! I couldn't find anything better, and he's (one of my) role model(s)! And I found it hilarious.

But seriously, these are my two favorite quotes:

Quote:
Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong.

Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.


Both by Winston Churchhill. I just found 'em, but they suit me well.
