So I wonder what are some of your favorite quotations? I post it here just because some of mine might be a bit controversial. Here are mine:
My land is bare of chattering folk;
the clouds are low along the ridges,
and sweet's the air with curly smoke
from all my burning bridges.
Nella- "So after I finish this [drink] all my bad life choices come to fruition right?"
Lindsey- "No because we frame them as good."
"Evil is a lot more fun, we have all the best lines." -Robert Knox in Doctor Who: Medicinal Purposes
"What's the use of a good quotation if you can't change it?" -Sixth Doctor
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” -Voltaire
“What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.” -Salman Rushdie
"A critic is expected to present certain shades of grey. As a result, modern reviews are filled with weak, almost self-contradictory clauses of “Absolutely golden, with the following flaws” and “Terrible, but not without it’s good points”. This is a show that allows me to, for a brief moment, break that trend. A show that allows for a single pure, unambiguous reaction.
Glee sucks unrepentantly. Glee sucks in a manner so flawless and complete that one has to admire the brazenness of it. Glee sucks enough to create a singularity of bad writing and half-assed covers strong enough to pull in the couch potato hivemind. Glee sucks in a way that makes the average teen sitcom's cookie-cutter characters and heavy-handed themes appear more complex than Paradise Lost. Glee is the modern avatar of suck.
This show’s survival in the same timeslot as Lost and Community is nothing short of a dark miracle. I recommend it slightly less than Ebola." -TV Tropes review of Glee: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/review_comments.php?id=1440
"I once read a theory that since the tardis is the one that is translating all of the doctors language from gallifreyan to english. That at this point he is going over some highly complex formulas on physics he’s learned as a time lord. But that it is so complex that the only words in english that could translate it is physics." -Random Tumblr User on this scene from the Doctor Who episode School Reunion: Physiiiics!
"We all know blogging is just a vaguely narcissistic attempt to make ourselves feel important, to reassure ourselves that our opinions matter and at least someone out there cares what we think." -http://butmyopinionisright.tumblr.com
"It is likely I will die next to a pile of things I was meaning to read." -Lemony Snicket
"You're smarter than the things you say." -Maggie Ramsey (a friend of mine, i thought it was too good not to put it here)
"The truth resists simplicity." -John Green
(Describing George W Bush) "Now I know there are some polls out there saying that this man has a 32% approval rating. But guys like us, we don't listen to the polls. The polls are just a reflection of what people are thinking in "reality." And as we all know, reality has a well known liberal bias." -Stephen Colbert
"I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it." -Mark Twain
"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." -Douglas Adams
"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"
- Douglas Adams
"Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear." -Thomas Jefferson
The United States is in no sense founded on the Christian religion. -George Washington
"Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions." -Jerry Falwell

"The Internet [is] simply a place where religions come to die." -Thunderf00t
"We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further." -Richard Dawkins
"Dang it, Jim, I'm an astronomer, not a doctor! I mean, I am a doctor, but I'm not that kind of doctor. I have a doctorate, it's not the same thing. You can't help people with a doctorate, you just sit there, and you're useless!" -Dr. Doppler, Treasure Planet
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever." -Gandhi
