Book quotes, movie quotes, music quotes, funny quotes, serious quotes, random quotes... My favorite quotes. Some of them are also on Facebook and many of them I've written in here in random entries. Books are in italics, movies are bold, "songs" are in quotation marks.
"I am not perfect in ANY way. Can we still be friends?" -Associate Pastor's wife
"Fear of failure is not an excuse to be irresponsible."
"Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation." -C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
"The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics, he is also concerned to prove there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do." Aldous Huxley
"This is the sort of English up with which I cannot put." -Winston Churchill, on ending sentences with prepositions
"Friendship begins the moment one person says to another, 'Really, you too? I thought I was the only one!'" -C.S. Lewis
Of spring: "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth." -Mary Lennox in Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden
"In a refined and exalted nature, it is very seldom that the feeling of love, when thoroughly aroused, bears any sort of relation to the reality of the object. It is commonly an enkindling of the whole power of the soul's love for whatever she considers highest and fairest; it is, in fact, the love of something divine and unearthly, which, by a sort of illusion, connects itself to a personality." -Harriet Beecher Stowe, The Minister's Wooing
"Elizabeth and I were married by the time we were 20, and we'd been dating since we were 15, so this may sound a little juvenile, but... Can I hold your hand?" -Bob Rueland (David Duchovny), Return to Me
"Rachel says Rachel, just like that. Now you know to talk to drunks is crazy and to tell them your name is worse, but who can blame her. She is young and dizzy to hear so many sweet things in one day, even if it is a bum man's whiskey words saying them." -Sandra Cisneros, The House on Mango Street
"So this is the little lady who started the big war." -Abraham Lincoln, of Harriet Beecher Stowe
"You may feel like a poet, but you sound like an idiot." -Roland (Mark Addy), A Knight's Tale
"Wit is the sudden marriage of ideas which, before their union, were not perceived to have any relation." -Mark Twain
"I was wrong about this young man of yours. A man when he is making up to anybody can be cordial and gallant and full of little attentions and altogether charming. But when a man is really in love he can't help looking like a sheep. Now, whenever that young man looked at you he looked like a sheep. I take back all I said this morning. It is genuine." -Miss Viner in Agatha Christie's Mystery of the Blue Train
"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." -Winston Churchill
Lucy: I think you're the most selfish person on the planet.
George: Well, that's just silly. Have you met everybody on the planet?
