What's your favourite quote from a book, person, movie, TV show, etc?

Mine would have to be H. P Lovecraft, 'The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear. And the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown,' and Tyrion Lannister from GoT, 'Once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.' What about yours?

  • This whole bunch of dialogue from the Matrix, but especially the part in regards to

    "That you are a slave. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind."

    Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?

    Neo: No.

    Morpheus: Why not?

    Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.

    Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?

    Neo: The Matrix.

    Morpheus: Do you want to know…what it is?

    Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work…when you go to church…when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

    Neo: What truth?

    Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind.

  • When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
    And
    Give, but don't allow yourself to be used. Love, but don't allow your heart to be abused. Trust, but don't be naive. Listen to other, but don't lose your own voice.

  • "For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons."
    From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (and my profile)

    "I am Holly, the ship's computer, with an IQ of 6000; the same IQ as 6000 PE teachers."
    From the second episode of Red Dwarf :p

  • I like the first quote you wrote as well.

    I will add another one from him then.
    “Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity.”
    ― H. P. Lovecraft

  • Good Lord. Asking me that would be like asking a woman with 100 kids which one she loves most. I can tell you my favorite person to quote (C. S. Lewis), but I coultn't possible choose a favorite quote of his. He has so many absolutley amazing ones that it's pretty absurd. I post a loto f them in my deviantart journal: http://sin-and-love.deviantart.com/journal/

  • Jack reacher talking to some hired 3rd string college football line men suppose to act as muscle for the local crime familly... he's trying to warn the 3 or 4 of them before the fight
    "You were trained to play a game. And you're not even good enough to do that. I was trained to kill people. And i was the best"
    I read that and was like "... badass" jack reacher was the head of a made up soecial forces military police unit by the way

    I also like the classic "FREEEEDOMMMMMMM!" From brave heart

  • "You can't run away" is an ideal for the strong. You're not always wrong. Society, the world, the people around you - often someone else is in the wrong. To think that you can change is adapting to this cruel, indifferent, trashy world. It's admitting defeat and servility. You're simply deceiving yourself by dressing it up with pretty words.
    Isn't changing yourself the same as running away? Why can't you just accept who you are? They say that if you change yourself, you'll change the world. but that's a complete lie. They're just forcing you to compromise, by feeding you a convenient little fib.
