What are some of your favourite quotations?
Inspired by the aphorisms that appear at the top of these pages, I thought I'd put together a list of my own favourites:
"I can resist everything except temptation" - Oscar Wilde
"A cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing" - Oscar Wilde
"Hope is the confusion of the desire for a thing with its probability" - Schopenhauer
"The door of happiness does not open inward so that one can push it open by rushing at it; it opens outward, and therefore one can do nothing about it" - Kierkegaard
"My only regret in life is that I'm not someone else" - Woody Allen
"It isn't enough to succeed; one's friends must fail" - La Rochefoucauld
"A fanatic redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim" - Santayana
"I'm not afraid of dying; I just don't want to be there when it happens" - Woody Allen
"Life is short, art is long" - Hippocrates
"Fame is fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever" - Napoleon
"And the lion shall lie down with the lamb, but the lamb won't get much sleep" - Woody Allen
That's all I can think of for the moment. Anyone else?
