    Great quotes -- share your favorites

    Post by wprager on Thu Aug 27, 2009 8:19 pm

    I was just reading an article on Dave Feamster (former NHL defenseman whose career was cut short, and who ended up running several Little Caesar's franchises with a little help from his former owner, Marian Ilitch. Anyhow, he had a great quote (see at the bottom of this post). I thought, why not get a topic going where we can all share our favorite quotes. So, here goes:

    What do you do in life? You learn to tie your shoes, then you play hockey.
    Dave Feamster

    Song writing is about getting the demon out of me. It's like being
    possessed. You try to go to sleep, but the song won't let you. So you
    have to get up and make it into something, and then you're allowed to
    sleep.
    -John Lennon

    I am not going to sit on my Donkey as the events that effect me unfold to
    determine the course of my life. Im going to take a stand. Im going
    to defend it. Right or wrong, Im going to defend it.
    -Ferris Bueller

    Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from
    something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, a vision. They
    have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they
    have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than
    the skill.
    -Muhammad Ali

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of
    comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
    -Martin Luther King Jr.

    Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
    - Leon Joseph Cardinal Suenens

    Songwriting is the most terrifying thing to me, because you are really laying your heart out there.
    -David Friedman

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today

    It is a shame that in this society we've been taught to judge a man's
    worth by what he owns instead of who he is. Everything is surface, and
    so few look beyond it. A man will sell his soul, he will lie, cheat and
    steal, for money. If he has it, he can buy respect. Wear the right
    clothes, drive the right car, have the right friends, that's all that
    matters. Our lives are consumed in a selfish, self absorbed quest for
    possessions, the latest and the best in a never-ending cycle until the
    day we die. We forget what it means to be truly human. We forget the
    things that really matter. We lose the magic of what life should be.
    I won't live by rules that make no sense to me.

    Well, if we are going with movie quotes, here's a couple from one of mt (oddball) favorites, The Adventures Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension:

    Hey, hey, hey don't be mean. No need to be mean. 'Cause, remember: no matter where you go... [pause] there you are.

    [
    As they are performing brain surgery] No, no, no, don't tug on that, you never know what
    it might be attached to.

    Aw, I love that movie. Too bad no one else in my familiy does.
