Well, this topic came up when Crazy Man Dan noted (in "The thread!")...

I just noticed the Adam Savage quote in david.atwell's sig. :D

The quote he's referring to would be "I reject your reality, and substitute my own!"

usedHONDA brought up his "Am I missing an eyebrow?" quote, and I remembered Tory Belleci's "Well, if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing..." (In case you don't know, all of these quotes are from Mythbusters)

So, I thought I should pose the question to the entire forum...what are your favorite quotes to live by? It can be serious, it can be funny, it can make you think, it can be absolutely inane...but what quote most characterizes your life?

(Note: It doesn't necessarily have to be Mythbusters-related. But it's a great show, and you should definitely watch it.)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Everyone should always remember that, Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

You can put these in signatures:

If you can't do it the first time, try try again. If you still can't do it, search Google.

I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens.

If you die in an elevator, be sure to push the Up button.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.

"A Minneapolis company has come out with a credit card size shotgun that fits in your wallet. The inventor says he invented it to give people a sense of security. Oh yeah, what makes you feel more secure than sitting on shotgun? Now how does this work? What's the first thing a thief steals? Your wallet, oh, now he's got your gun too!" ~Jay Leno

Absolute Truth:

You can believe whatever you want, but that does not change the truth.

Icky / funny, but meaningful:

Life is like pine cones - sometimes, when you must do, you must make do.

I am not a mechanism, I am part of the resistance;

I am an organism, an animal, a creature, I am a beast.

I actually made a thread like this at AoW.

"Light always travels faster than sound. This is why some people seem bright before you hear them speak."

"Do onto others as you want to be done onto you."

Or something like that.

"The only intelligent people are the ones who know what they don't know."

"A weakness is a strength yet to be born."

"My grandmother started to walk 5 miles a day when she was 60. Now we don't know where she is."

"Two negatives don't make a positive."

"One mans trash is another mans treasure."

"What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger."

I have tons, I just can't think of them.

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former"

I liked a lot of yours Yata and can relate to them particularly these three:

"Do onto others as you want to be done onto you."

[...]

"The only intelligent people are the ones who know what they don't know."

[...]

"One mans trash is another mans treasure."

I also live by this one - "don't fear when you will die or even death itself, but instead fear how you will die as it is this which will reflect you as the person you once was" - and is one that continuously runs through my mind.

However, I usually stop at 'how you will die' as I do fear the means of my, an others, death more than anything else.

I want to make some Microsoft-related quotes.....

How about this:

Life is like a Microsoft product. No matter how much work is put into it or how good you make it look, there's always going to be somebody complaining about it.

Life is like the Command Prompt. It's simple, yet too hard to comprehend.

More to come!

The ultimate oxymoron: Microsoft Works.

(Just kidding, Microsoft employee Rick!)

These are not quotes just some fun advice.

The ten best things to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk:

10. "They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen."

9. "This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time

management course you sent me to."

8. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here

just in time."

7. "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and

envisioning a new business strategy."

6. "I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance."

5. "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve

work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice

Yoga?"

4. "Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out how to

handle that big accounting problem."

3. "Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you

put your ear down real close?"

2. "Who put decaf in the wrong pot?"

Number one best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk:

1. Raise your head slowly and say, "...in Jesus' name, Amen "

 

"One can't complain. I have my friends. Someone spoke to me only yesterday." EEYORE

The most awesome quote I ever heard, goes with this.

If anyone here as seen Ghost in the Shell, they know this scene from the first episode of the first series.

I repeat, this quote is just cool ^^

"Fix up your own act before whining about the world, and if that's too much; Wear a blindfold, zip your mouth, and live in a cave."~Motoko Kusanagi, the Major of Section 9

~EvilNeko

Edit: And I think I did it again, posting on an old topic...
