I could have sworn we had a thread like this before. :shrug:

One of my favorite quotes is one given to the class by our teacher that went a little something like, "ask for forgiveness, not permission."

I've seen so many changeful years, / to Earth I am a stranger grown: / I wander in the ways of men, / alike unknowing and unknown: / Unheard, unpitied, unrelieved, / I bear alone my load of care; / For silent, low, on beds of dust, / Lie all that would my sorrows share. - Robert Burns' Lament for James

I've accumulated a quote list of sorts over the years. At the moment, this would have to be my favourite:

"I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it is the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope."

Probably the best Batman quote of all time was in the Dark Knight Returns Part 2(the 2nd half of an animated movie based off of the best batman comic of all time) when he was talking to Superman.
SPOILER: Show
I didn't have to go easy on you. A different binding agent, a stronger mix... I want you to remember that. I wanted to remind you to stay out of my way. In all the years to come, in your most private moments, I want you to remember the one man who beat you!
-Batman

Yeah, The Boss said it first, but Mann said it better.

Man - “I’m not.”

That is a brilliant saying. I live my life by this philosophy.

An extended version I read went along the lines:
“If something is a good idea, do it. It’s easier to apologise than to get permission.”

A bunch of little nuggets I'm familiar with:

-The last thing a young girl needs is a hands-on father.

-Live every day as if it's your last and eventually it will be. You'll be fully prepared.

-Using technology to clean up the mess made by technology doesn't seem too intelligent.

-I'm starting to get more compassionate. I gotta watch that.

-Be careful whom you befriend. They will eventually ask you for something.

-People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

-The future ain't what it used to be.

-If you can't say something nice about a person, go ahead.

-They say that rather than cursing the darkness, one should light a candle. They don't mention anything about cursing a lack of candles.

-Here's how money can buy happiness: Money gives you options, options give you breathing room, breathing room gives you control and control can offer you a measure of happiness. Maybe.

-If no one knows when a person is going to die, how can we say he died prematurely?

-If you have a legal problem, guess how you determine whether or not you need a lawyer? You see a lawyer. Isn't that weird?

-I'm not a person who thinks he can have it all. But I certainly feel that with a bit of effort and guile, I should be able to have more than my fair share.

-Suppose you tried to f*** a woman who had ten personalities, and nine of them said okay, but one of them resisted and tried to fight you off. Would that still be a rape?

-I'd like to know the suicide rate among people who call in to radio psychologists and actually follow the advice they get.

-I have no regrets in life. Although I am kind of sorry I never got to beat a man to death while wearing a tuxedo.

-When it comes to God's existence, I'm not an atheist and I'm not an agnostic. I'm an acrostic. The whole thing puzzles me.

-I finally figured out what e-mail is for. It's for communicating with people you'd rather not talk to.

-Whenever I hear that someone lives in a gated community, I think of places like Auschwitz.

-Those who dance are considered insane by those who can’t hear the music.

-I’ve never been quarantined. But the more I look around, the more I think it might not be a bad idea.

My mother is fond of a certain permutation of that one.
