I was just curious. So many of you have different signatures with different quotes, so for all you who dont have a quote in your signature (like me) what is your favorite quote?

Mine would probably have to be:
"I believe that there comes a time in every man's life where an event of such importance occurs that it literally splits time itself; into everything that happened before this and everything that will happen after this"

I dont know who said this, but one of my teachers had this quote up in like 5th grade and it really stuck with me.

Doh, I hate to bring this up, Knight Morning, but ... Lions don't live in the jungle, and I'm pretty sure gazelles don't either! Didn't you see the Lion King? Ok, bad example, that lion lived in the jungle for awhile, but he wasn't supposed to be there. Bah, now I'm rambling...

Yeah, Kurtie, it should probably be, "In the veldt..." The Veldt. Cool story. Who wrote it, anyone know? Bradbury? Thx.

Keep your stick on the ice.

Are you talking about the one where those two kids had that 3-D room where everything is alive and they trick their parents into going in and they get eaten by lions? If that's it ( cause I can't remember the title) yes, Bradbury wrote it.
Did you read the one that he wrote about the futuristic automated house that kept running after a nuclear holocaust? I can't remember the title of that either, but it is my favorite I have never been able to get those images out of my head.

When FDR was asked why conservatives always seemed to be united, and liberals always seemed to be divided, he said, "

There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still."

that's always a cute one to remember =)

"Tho you can fret me, you cannot play upon me..." Shakespeare, of course

and TigerLilly, not sure if this is the right one, but when I read you question, Bradbury's short story came to mind. It was titled something like: "And When the Soft Rains Fall..." Not sure if this is the right one tho...

ABSTAINER, n. A weak person who yields to the temptation of denying
himself a pleasure. A total abstainer is one who abstains from
everything but abstention, and especially from inactivity in the
affairs of others.

ACCORD, n. Harmony.

ACCORDION, n. An instrument in harmony with the sentiments of an
assassin.

ACHIEVEMENT, n. The death of endeavor and the birth of disgust.

ADMIRATION, n. Our polite recognition of another's resemblance to
ourselves.

ALONE, adj. In bad company.

APOLOGIZE, v.i. To lay the foundation for a future offence.

GRAVITATION, n. The tendency of all bodies to approach one another
with a strength proportion to the quantity of matter they contain --
the quantity of matter they contain being ascertained by the strength
of their tendency to approach one another. This is a lovely and
edifying illustration of how science, having made A the proof of B,
makes B the proof of A.

HOMICIDE, n. The slaying of one human being by another. There are
four kinds of homocide: felonious, excusable, justifiable, and
praiseworthy, but it makes no great difference to the person slain
whether he fell by one kind or another -- the classification is for
advantage of the lawyers.

WAR, n. A by-product of the arts of peace.

All quoted from Ambrose Bierce

I should note that after the A's I just skimmed very quickly, there are many more gems among the other letters.

Wow, Foistie, that's really very close. It's "There Will Come Soft Rains". I read the story, but so long ago, ('68 or '69) that I wouldn't have remembered the name without your being that close... That's teamwork!
