What's your favorite quote?

I love reading and there are a lot of beautiful quotes I've come across. My favorite is by Toni Morrison in her book the Bluest Eye.

"Along with the idea of romantic love, she was introduced to another--physical beauty. Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in insecurity, and ended in disillusion."
