I know, you're thinking what the-heck- kind of title is that, but whatever. Get over it, ;p

Anyways, I LOVE quotes. Not sappy ones. But ones that say a lot in a few words and encourage, inspire me and etc.

So I was thinking we should all post our favorite quotes here.
If this thread is a re-make, I apologize. I typed in quotes and nothing came up ...lol.

"It's never too late to be what you might have been." -George Eliot

"People are funny. They spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't like." (Unknown)

"People can change. They just don't because it's easier not to. We're always waiting for our lives to begin, like figuring we'll be someone else someday. But what are we waiting for? All we have is now. Don't run from this." (Unknown)

"There is no speed limit on the pursuit of excellence." (Unknown)


All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. -Arthur Schopenhauer

"When people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you & it doesn't mean they are bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over." (Unknown)

I have more...but that's all for now...what about yours? =)

"I have discovered in my long life that there are many words and phrases which have more power than any spell of magick. The most well-known of these is, of course, I love you. But by far the most deadly is, if only. For these two words can strip a man's strength, his courage and his confidence. They become the father of regret and anguish and pain." - David Gemmell

"To be truthful i am not entirely sure what people mean when they talk of happiness. There are moments of joy and laughter, the comfort of friendship, but enduring happiness? If it exists i have not found it" - David Gemmell
