So what are some of your favorite quotes? Can be anything: Philosophy , song lyrics, tv, movie, literature. Serious or tongue in cheek. Insightful or cliche.  Feel free to elaborate on what it means to you ... or not :P

A couple of mine

"I understand about indecision, but I don't care if I get behind. People livin' in competition, all I want is to have my peace of mind" -- Boston

I've got a quote on my wall which reads... 

Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. - J. K. Rowling

I have always loved her story and drew a lot of inspiration from her. When I think I'm at my lowest I try to think of all the people like her who found themselves in a bad situation and battled their way out of it against the odds. It usually helps.

I have a page on my personal website that lists my favorite quotes, which is quite barren right now, with only two, quotes.

Instead of putting them up, I am simply going to link to the page below.

I never had the opportunity to know you, never even heard of you. But now, as I've seen you coming and leaving so fast, in one day, I see you truly know what speed means.

See, if you're enlightened like I am, then you know the real show is down below: the booty, baby! That's where it's at! Nothing trumps the rump, my friend. Anyone who can't see that is either blind or a fool. That's why I say enough with this mass boob hysteria. It's time to set things right. It's time to give the ass the respect it deserves!

These are some of my favourite Anime quotes.

"A person who cannot sacrifice everything, won't be able to change anything." -Armin Arlert

"I don't like the terms 'good person' or 'bad person' because it's impossible to be entirely good to everyone or entirely bad to everyone. To some you are a good person, while to others you are a bad person." -Armin Arlert

"This is Hell ... No. The situation did not become hellish. It's just that so far, we were too blind to see it. It's always been Hell from the beginning. The strong devour the weak." -Armin Arlert 

"The only thing we're allowed to do is to believe we won't regret the choice we made." -Levi Ackerman

"Why is it that the beautiful things are entwined more deeply with death than with life?" -Ken Kaneki

"If I'm weak, everyone will be killed ..." -Ken Kaneki

"I'm not the protagonist of a novel or anything ... I'm a college student who likes to read, like you find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to write a story with me in the lead role ... It would certainly be a tragedy." -Ken Kaneki

"Sometimes I do feel like I'm a failure. Likes there's no hope for me. But even so, I'm not gonna give up. Ever!" -Izuku Midoriya

I love this, but what if coffee just prepares you for the bitterness of the world?

I take my cream and sugar with a side of coffee 😉

And @leinwandname I loved reading Voltaire and Rousseau on the Lisbon disaster.
