    I know more historical figure quotes than I do literary figures. Is that allowed?

    Since were in an election year, I always laugh at this.

    "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter." - Winston Churchill.

    Then on the other side of things.

    "Have you ever seen anything as big as this?" - Lyndon B. Johnson. He liked to call his dick Jumbo.

    It was only when you walked away I saw you had the perfect ass.
    Forgive me for not falling in love with your face or your conversation.

    There is a place where the sidewalk ends
    and before the street begins,
    and there the grass grows soft and white,
    and there the sun burns crimson bright,
    and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
    to cool in the peppermint wind.

    Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
    and the dark street winds and bends.
    Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
    we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
    and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
    to the place where the sidewalk ends.

    Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
    and we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
    for the children, they mark, and the children, they know,
    the place where the sidewalk ends.

    Shel Silverstein

    I love Mark Twain so much that I had a difficult time choosing a quote. I think he's pretty great.

    "I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

    "She had a pretty gift for quotation, which was a serviceable substitute for wit."
    -W. Somerset Maugham

    This quote has many variations and attributions but I like this version the best.

    A wise old owl lived in an oak
    The more he saw the less he spoke
    The less he spoke the more he heard.
    Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?
