Post your favorite quotes, from anyone, living or dead doesn't matter. (2 of my favorite ones are in my signature).

A civilization which leaves so large a number of its participants unsatisfied and drives them into revolt neither has nor deserves the prospect of a lasting existence.
Sigmund Freud
I'll come up with some more later.

"Why should Caesar get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? What's so great about Caesar? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar. OK, Brutus is just as smart as Caesar. People totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar. And when did it become OK for one person to be the boss of everybody? Because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just stab Caesar!" ~All from Mean Girls

"Saucy saucy minx"
"From Chaos Comes Clarity".....My favorite band, 311 (prolly some smart guy philosipher that said it first but I have no idea who)

These words have gotten me through a lot of shit in my life. Sounds cheesy to quote a band but these words have stuck with me and really hit home

"Saucy saucy minx"
Not really a saying, but a good retort to an asshole customer...

"OK Mr. Jones. Your valves are adjusted and im gonna charge you an hours labor."

"But Dave, it only took you 20 minutes to do that. Why so much?"

"Because it took me 20 years to learn how to do it in 20 minutes. Now gimmie my money."
 

Sorry

“What is honor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms . . . or the memory of a brother's smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”
-- Aemon Targaryen
“People often claim to hunger for truth, but seldom like the taste when it's served up.”

“So many vows … they make you swear and swear. Defend the king. Obey the king. Keep his secrets. Do his bidding. Your life for his. But obey your father. Love your sister. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. Respect the gods. Obey the laws. It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or another.”
-- Jaime Lannister

Yes, this is all from Game of Thrones. It might be evident that I have a problem.

I have three quotes that I love.

"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never escape it alive anyways." Not sure who it's from but it always rings true

"Every single person who has told you that you couldn't, lives in fear that you'll achieve the things in life they think you shouldn't" The Delgados, from the song 'Get Action!'

Last one I just find funny and always think of it when I want a small laugh.

"The existence of the flamethrower is proof that someone once thought to themselves, 'I want to light those people on fire, but they are too far away to do it'"

"I'm just trying to get a window seat on the way to Hell."
"I like to tell people I've been blessed, and I like to give back. But that's a bunch of horse shit. I give back because I'm a bad person, who does bad things like shoplift."

"People's hearts are pure chaos. Formless and ever-changing—a mystery no one can solve. That is why humans are such contradictions. One moment they're at each other's throats, the next they're forming shaky alliances."-Jihl Nabaat

I can't remember any other....
