The "good quote" thread made me think: what are some of your favorite quotes? Serious, funny, inspirational, whatever. Here are a few of mine (I have a ton):

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." --Ralph Waldo Emerson

"You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don't help." --Calvin

This guy I work with says all kinds of funny stuff. When he wants you to know he understands you, he says "I smell what you're stepping in."
When we do something unladylike at work, like burp, he always says "sexy, kind of."
He's the first guy tech we've ever had and it's fun and weird at the same time, he's such a good sport and always making us laugh.

"There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats" -Albert Schweitzer
