A short list of my favorite quotes:

“You will never be a leader unless you first learn to follow and be led.” -Tioro

“My definition of a leader ... is a man who can persuade people to do what they don’t want to do, or do what they’re too lazy to do, and like it.” -Harry S. Truman

“It's much easier to turn a friendship into love, than love into friendship.” -Proverb

“A friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”-Proverb

“A coward gets scared and quits. A hero gets scared, but still goes on.”-Proverb

“Fate only takes you so far. The rest is up to you.”-Unknown

I have more but that would be enough I think.

Martin Luther King:
"I Have A Dream"
An absolute legend - this man pushed for black equality in at the time a very racist White America; these 4 simple words have had a compounding effect on both American history and worldwide race equality.

Winston Churchill:
"We Shall Fight Them On The Beaches!"
A very talented PM (probs the best we've ever had) and a naturally gifted orator whose words of wisdom pushed Britain through the war effort and kept the spirit of Britain souring high even during the Blitz bombings. We hold this dude in forever gratitude as without him and our RAF its my personal opinion that our small island nation would have buckled under relentless German bombing and therefore would have succumbed to Nazi rule. The fact that he had a disability (a speech impediment) makes his memory all the more stronger in the minds of our people - a bit like Franklin Delano Roosevelt whom got America out of the economic slumps after the 1929 Wall Street Crash with his "New Deal" and struck back at the Japanese after the ferocious bombing of Pearl Harbor. The fact that he was disabled (weak legs) also makes this icon of history seem all the more brave and more memorable.

Wow that's a lot of quotes Jediphile! I think Oscar Wilde's quote brings forth the most truth. To be patriotic is to be nationalistic which inturn can lead to extreme faith in one's nation. Past examples being Nazism and Communism - arguably patriotism can be linked to the very core reasons behind some of the world's problems in history.

Very interesting quotes. A couple that stood out to me:
Quote:
"If absolute power corrupts absolutely, where does that leave God?"
- George Daacon
Did George Daacon answer his own question or did he simply pose it in response to Lord Acton's statement, "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely?"
Quote:
"Better to reign in hell, than to serve in heaven." - Milton
Hmmm... I wonder if Milton had seen both heaven and hell before he made this statement.

I believe it comes from this book written by John Milton and as such isn't something he said, but rather wrote in that context.

Some quotes that come to mind, though not necessarily favorite:

"All religions deserve equal freedom of worship and practice but none deserve the right to freedom from criticism."
- Rowan Atkinson (on the concept of Freedom of Speech)

"If you do NOT watch the news you are uninformed but if you DO watch the news you are misinformed."
- Mark Twain.

"A computer is like an Old Testament god, with a lot of rules and no mercy."
- Joseph Campbell

"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. " - Jesus of Nazareth

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." - Ibid.

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."
- Howard Phillips Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"

... and since we've apparently strayed into quotes from tv-shows...


"I never run away - I strategically maneuver!"
- Rygel XVI

"Of course it's a foe - we have no friends!"
- Rygel XVI, Farscape: "Relativity"

"I believe in coincidences. Coincidences happen every day. But I don't trust coincidences!"
(Garak (played by Andrew J. Robinson), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - "Cardassians")

"The truth is usually just an excuse for a lack of imagination..."
(Garak (played by Andrew J. Robinson), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - "Improbable Cause")

"Always remember to burn your bridges behind you - you never know who might be trying to follow!"
(Enabram Tain (played by Paul Dooley), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - "Improbable Cause")

"There is a reason why you separate the military and the police. One fights the enemy of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tends to become the people..."
(Commander Adama (played by Edward James Olmos), Battlestar Galactica - "Water")

"...The first casualty of war is always the truth"
(Captain John Sheridan (played by Bruce Boxleitner), Babylon 5 - "Acts of Sacrifice")

"Governments deal in matters of convenience, not conscience."
(Captain John Sheridan (played by Bruce Boxleitner), Babylon 5 - "Acts of Sacrifice")

"Take my advice and go back to the time you came from... The future isn't what it used to be!"
(Ambassador G'Kar (played by Andreas Katsulas), Babylon 5 - "The Long Dark")

"Did they kiss your a$$ to your satisfaction?"
(Starbuck, Battlestar Galactica mini series)

"You should go - I'm getting an urge to hit another superior a$$hole"
(Starbuck, Battlestar Galactica mini series)


Let me know when we move onto movies as well...

Here's a bunch of my favorite quotes. I've forgotten where most are from, so sorry about the lack of referencing:

"If guns kill people, then I can blame misspelled words on my pencil."

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross." --Sinclair Lewis.

"Hey look, it's the two symbols of the Republican party: an elephant and a fat white guy who's threatened by change." ~Family Guy

"Objects in mirror appear to be losing"

"Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you." (in my sig, from a bmw forum)

And a very appropriate quote for the current era of rabid paranoia: "He who is willing to give up freedom for safety deserves neither freedom nor safety." --Benjamin Franklin


A racing addiction makes a crack addiction look like a vague desire for something salty. -Randy Hickman

Fear disturbs your concentration. - Sabine Schmitz

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Safeguard the helpless. Never lie, even if it leads to your death; that is your oath." from kingdom of heaven i love that quote


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

They are. I remember another one, where he did or said something, which I don't recall, but which caused a woman to insult him, and so prompted this result...

Churchill: "You're ugly, madam"

Woman: "Mr. Churchill - you're drunk!"

Churchill: "Madam, the difference between you and me is that tomorrow I will be sober... but you will still be ugly!"

"Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived." - Jean-Luc Picard

I've got a few more that I like, but for some odd reason, this is the only one I can remember right now.

Ah, but don't forget the badguy quotes from that movie:

"Normal is what everyone is and you are not!"

(that's how a REAL villain speaks and argues...)

and

"Time is the fire in which we burn!"


As for Picard:

"They invade our space, and we fall back.
They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back.
Not again!
The line must be drawn here! THIS far and NO further!"

(hilarious when quoted by Quark on DS9 - he's the last person I'd EVER expect to quote Picard...)

Or a quotes that speak more to Picard's true nature:

"How many people does it take, before it becomes wrong, huh? A thousand? Fifty thousand? A million? How many people does it take, Admiral!!"

"But she or someone like her will always be with us... waiting for the right climate in which to flourish... spreading fear... in the name of righteousness. Vigilance, Mr. Worf. That is the price we have to continually pay."

Or this this little speech (also from "The Drumhead")

Worf [about Tarsis]: "He refused answer the question about his romulan grandfather..."

Picard: "That is not a crime, Worf! Nor can we infer his guilt because he did not respond!"

Worf: "Sir... If a man were not afraid of the truth, he would answer!"

Picard: "Oh no... We cannot allow ourselves to think that. The seventh guarantee is one of the most important rights granted by the Federation. We cannot take a fundamental principle of the constituion and turn it against a citizen!"

Worf: "Sir, the Federation DOES have enemies! We MUST seek them out!"

Picard: "Oh yes... that's how it starts. But the road from legitimate suspicion to rampant paranoia is very much shorter than we think! Something is wrong here, Mr. Worf! I don't like what we have become!!"

That was the same woman he insulted in my earlier quote, actually.

One other time Winston got a letter from a playwright who disliked him, inviting him to the first opening of his play. At the end he added "Bring a friend - if you have one." Churchill wrote back saying he was busy that night, but that he would be sure to come to the second opening - if there was one.

And more Winston quotes:

"'No comment' is a splendid expression. I am using it again and again."

"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."

"We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."

"Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant..."

Just a few of my personal favorites:

"You took a gun and stabbed me in the back, right in front of my eyes." - Someone random on MySpace.

"If you run in front of a car, you get tired. If you run behind a car, you get exhausted." - Somewhere here, a looong time ago, on LF.

"I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally." - W.C. Fields

"I can resist everything... except temptation." Oscar Wilde

And IMO, very appropriate for LF...

"The ability to quote is a serviceable substitute for wit." - Somerset Maugham

Have a nice day.

these are some quotes on the subject of Friendship

"Misfortune shows those who are not really friends."
Aristotle

"The shifts of Fortune test the reliability of friends."
Cicero

"Have no friends not equal to yourself."
Confucius

"Do not protect yourself by a fence, but rather by your friends."
Czech Proverb

"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation."
George Washington

"When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends."
Japanese Proverb

"Go through your phone book, call people and ask them to drive you to the airport. The ones who will drive you are your true friends. The rest aren't bad people; they're just acquaintances."
Jay Leno

"In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends."
John Churton Collins

"It's a lot like nature. You only have as many animals as the ecosystem can support and you only have as many friends as you can tolerate the bitching of."
Randy K. Milholland

"Sometimes the measure of friendship isn't your ability to not harm but your capacity to forgive the things done to you and ask forgiveness for your own mistakes."
Randy K. Milholland

"The only thing that lasts longer than a friend's love is the stupidity that keeps us from knowing any better."
Randy K. Milholland

"We secure our friends not by accepting favors but by doing them."
Thucydides
