"Remember, remember
The fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot."

"I reject your reality and substitute my own." - Adam Savage, though I've heard that he wasn't the one to come up with it even though he spread its popularity

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein

"You should never let the sun set on tomorrow before the sun rises today." - From the Nine Days song "If I Am", could have originated somewhere else though

I've got way, way too many quotes that I like. I also really like quotes from songs taken out of context such that they gain no concrete or meaningful meaning.

“Dream as if you have forever. Live as if you only have today.”
“He who asks is a fool for five minutes. But he who does not ask remains a fool forever.”
"All human sin seems so much worse in its consequences than in its intentions."
"An eye for an eye makes the world blind."

Something I heard from a friend today:
"I'm not just mean, I'm evil." :lol:

And something another friend wrote once:
" 'Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.' - Abraham Lincoln "
Yeah, it's a quote within a quote.
