    He who shouts "Long live" has to pay for the funeral.

    Stupidity is the mother of crime. But the fathers are frequently geniuses.

    I knew a fellow who had such a poor ear for music that, if he had only build a theory around it, he could have been famous.

    The constitution of a country should not violate the constitutions of its citizens.

    Not when the question involves beer or girls.

    Anyway, back to quotes. My favorite Oscar Wilde quotes:

    Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.

    Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

    Music makes one feel so romantic - at least it always gets on one's nerves - which is the same thing nowadays.

    Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.

    I agree there.

    But, here's my quote, it's a song lyric.

    "All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,
    His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
    Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
    And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
    And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
    Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
    Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
    Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
    Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
    Seeking the bubble reputation
    Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
    In fair round belly with good capon lined,
    With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
    Full of wise saws and modern instances;
    And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
    Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
    With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
    His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
    For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
    Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
    And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
    That ends this strange eventful history,
    Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
    Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything."

    I find this constant discrimination against my kind rather offensive. I say it is time for a change. I say to you today, my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. I have a dream that one day warlocks will rise up and cast off the shackles of oppression. I have a dream that one day we will no longer be judged upon by how different we are from you. I have a dream that one day we will be looked at and simply labeled as 'friend'. I have a dream that one day, when all this occurs, that we take advantage of surprise and slaughter as many of you as possible. I have a dream that one day, there will be no structure left standing, no man or woman left un-decapitated, and no babies left undevoured. I have a dream that none of you are spared the horrors of our rule.

    Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering-Yoda

    I reject your reality and substitute my own-Adam Savage
    A person is smart. People are stupid, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it-Agent Kay
    That is the exploration that awaits you�not mapping stars and studying nebulae, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence-Q
    Church: I learned a very valuable lesson in my travels, Tucker. No matter how bad things might seem...
    Caboose: They could be worse?
    Church: Nope, no matter how bad they seem, they can't be any better, and they can't be any worse, because that's the way things f***ing are, and you better get used to it Nancy. Quit-yer-b****ing.

    If one man says to you "You are a donkey", pay no heed. If two speak thus, purchase a saddle.

    A person will be called to account on Judgment Day for every permissible thing he might have enjoyed but did not.

    You can educate a fool, but you cannot make him think.

    There are stars whose light only reaches the earth long after they have fallen appart. There are people who's remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away. This light shines in our darkest nights on the road we must follow.
