    Favorite Quotes?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Nicoel, Feb 4, 2016.

    There hasn't been a thread like this in a while, so I'll make another one. What are your current favorite quotes?
    Do you know of any quotes that are inspirational/biblical/graduation-y?

    This goes without saying, but please be respectful to people if they share a quote from the bible!

    Does it have to be a literary quote?

    One I just made up that probably at least partially exists in paraphrased form:

    "Politics is neither art nor science; it is all test, and the worst of them."

    Not so much inspiration as it is a good sticky note for wisdom.

    "People who like quotes love meaningless generalisations." - Graham Greene :p


    I'd forgotten how much I like Graham Greene. I think I need to add a few more titles to my "to read" list.
