My favorite quote:

"I could choose to be purely good, but I will not. I could choose to be purely evil, but I will not. I will be neutral. In that way I am free to be what suits me best, and no man can predict my actions."

"The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters." Genghis Khan

This must be the PG-13 version of Genghis Khan. "Clasp to your bosom"? Come on.

I could only find the quote on the imdb.com trivia for Conan the Barbarian.

In it's stead, I'll propose another quote.

German Culture ... Political superiority without any real human superiority is most harmful. One must seek to make amends for political superiority. To be ashamed of one's power. To use it in the most salutary way. Everybody thinks that the Germans may now rest on their moral and intellectual superiority. One seems to think that now it is time for something else, for the state. Til now, for "art," etc. This is an ignominious misunderstanding; there are seeds for the most glorious development of man. And these must perish for the sake of the state? What, after all, is a state? The time of the scholars is past. Their place must be taken by philalathes. Tremendous power. The only way to use the present kind of German power correctly is to comprehend the tremendous obligation which lies in it. Any slackenin gof cultural tasks would turn this power into the most revolting tyranny. - Friedrich Nietzsche

"Here's my advice on women: don't give them nicknames like Jumbo or Boxcar, and always get receipts." -Homer Simpson

"Every exit is an entrance someplace else." -Tom Stoppard

"Well, that puts a damper on even a Yankees win." -Phil Rizzuto, after the news of the Pope dying was aired during the commercial break

"And I said, 'Hey Lama, how 'bout a little something, you know, for the effort?' And he says, 'There won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed you will receive total consciousness.' So I got that going for me ... which is nice." -Carl Spackler

I've always loved that one, except that liberal/conservative is often replaced with socialist/capitalist

my favorite quotable, oscar wilde:

"Most modern calendars mar the sweet simplicity of our lives by reminding us that each day that passes is the anniversary of some perfectly uninteresting event."

"I can resist anything but temptation."

"true friends stab you in the front"

and my personal favorite:

"There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it. "

other favorite quotes,

"Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman's face
Hours are like diamonds, don't let them waste"
-the rolling stones, time waits for no one

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. "
-henry david thoreau, walden

"To be nobody-but-yourself -- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
-ee cummings

"Tedium is the worst pain. The mind lays out the world in blocks, and the hushed blood waits for revenge. All order, I've come to understand, is theoretical, unreal -- a harmless, sensible, smiling mask men slide between the two great, dark realities, the self and the world -- two snakepits."
- john garnder, grendel

"Like most people, I've constructed an elaborate house of cards based on the concept that I control the world around me. The hotels I stay in do not catch fire because I do not want them to, and my planes remain aloft for the same reason. What religious people call fate, I call luck. What they call 'God's will,' I call BAD luck. Accept a canceled flight and suddenly you're on a roll, opening yourself to the possibility of tax audits and spinal-cord injuries. Anything can happen, once the precedent's been set."

Not sure who said it, but it goes something to the effect of:

"Sometimes an answer is the death of a really good question."

Also

"All we see or seem is but a dream within a dream." Edgar Allan Poe

"In the dark hour of the soul, it is always 3 AM." F Scott Fitzgerald (may not have it exactly correct, but you get the idea.)

From music

"For every woman you will leave an open door." Tim Booth of James.

as well as

"Those who find they're touched by madness, sit down next to me."

and

«Je passe le plus clair de mon temps à l'obscurcir car la lumière me gêne.»

In english that would look like this:

«I spend the clearer of my time darkening it because the light obstructs me.»

However, in english, that really doesn't sound as good as in french.

Anoter of my favorite:

«Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.» - Albert Einstein.

I just found these two in the last couple of weeks, and I love them both:

"Blessed is he who has learned to admire but not envy, to follow but not imitate, to praise but not flatter, and to lead but not manipulate."
~ William Arthur Ward ~

"The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch swing with, never saying a word, and then walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've ever had."
~ Unknown ~

In case there was a risk of coming across as too nice, I also love the "Never argue with an idiot" quote....
