Favorite Quotes

I came across a new one this morning and thought I'd share, and then I thought "why share just that one? Let's have a whole bunch of them and let others share theirs!" My Monday morning has already consisted of cleaning up poo that was not on a baby's bum, so I could use some good ones!

Here's my newest favorite (the one I just discovered this morning,) the last 2 lines of Sarah Williams' The Old Astronomer to His Pupil:
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

And on a more jovial note, Liz Lemon from 30 Rock:
I really don't think you want my advice, I had a 3 Musketeers bar for breakfast and this bra is held together with tape.

Those are two of my favorites, now it's your turn! What are some of your favorite quotes?


  1. I can't remember the reason, but Homer Simpson was going to be without TV for awhile, to which he responds, "No TV?! I might have to think!"
    a sad, sad commentary on the 'raised on TV generations....'

    On a serious note:
    "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
    — Martin Luther King Jr.

  2. copied directly from my facebook page :)
    For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
    ~Carl Sagan, "Contact"

    We shall not cease from exploration
    And at the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.
    ~T.S. Eliot Four Quartets

    and from Esther's facebook page:
    "I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." E.B. White
