What are your favourite quotes?

My favourite qoutes are:

"He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all."

From 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner ' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

This qoute is from 'Geeta' written in Sanskrit

"Ma kuru dhana jana joubana garvang
Kala harati nimesha sarvang."

(Never become proud about your wealth, power and youth, it can be drestoyed within a wink.

I have had bunch of diferent ones in my life. I guess. it would depend on what was going on in my life. The one I used last night talking to my son was : " Don't be so humble, you are not so great."
And then of course there is one at the bottom of all of my posts.

You can dress a mule in a tux, it's still a mule.

Never eat more than you can lift.

Be good to your children, they choose your nursing home.

My brother often reminds me;

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it ~ Ferris Buehler

Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Accentuate the positives, medicate the negatives ~ Amy Sedaris

Just a couple of my favorites.
