What's the best piece of wisdom you've found in an unconventional place?

Or maybe even something that just inspired you to take note of it. Where did you read/hear it?

I once read the quote below on the wall of a public bathroom. I had to recite it over and over in my head until I got home and was able to write it down.

"And many a withering thought lies hid, not lost,
In smiles that least befit who wear them most."

Another time, I found this bottle of matches while I was out exploring some shops. It had the following poem printed on the jar.

"Nothing becomes familiar in the dark.
So be a flame. Be a flame, if only to evidence
time’s metronome, reacting to invisible tides,
leaning to the whims of any breeze of gravity.
Be a flame even if, and maybe especially,
if there are none. Be a flame even if only to
paint gold the faces of those who are closest.
Alight, our chests rise and fall the same.
Be a flame or at least be its student.
Learn the smoke: dissipate from the crown
of your head, fold your visible light
and float upward."

I added the last picture just for a laugh.
