Hi,

I LOVE quotes and I was wondering what some of your favorite ones are. Here are some of mine:

1. This one is my favorite: "Best friends are like one soul dwelling in two bodies"

2. "No Day But Today"

3. "Someone in the world is thinking about you right now and loving you SO much"

4. "No matter how much hate there is in the world, love will ALWAYS over run it"

5. "Have no fear, for fear might interrupt your dreams" (that one is my own) :)

hahahaha, that is pretty funny.

Ok, here are some funny ones:

"Why is there brail on drive up atm's?"

"Why are there chains to lock the doors on 24 hour 7/11's?"

This one is my favorite: "Why are there signs on baby strollers that remind you to REMOVE the baby before closing the stroller?"

Priest, that makes no sense. Stages don't have seats. I mean, yeah, I get what it's trying to say, but it would be better to say something like, "Life is an audience and I've got orchestra seats" or something.

What was I saying? Oh, right. Favorite quote. "If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance." - George Bernard Shaw.

Everything in life is only for now

There's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time

It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all

If all the world's a stage, I want better lighting

"Applause begets applause in the theatre, as laughter begets laughter and tears beget tears." CLAYTON HAMILTON, "Theory of the Theatre" "I think theater ought to be theatrical ... you know, shuffling the pack in different ways so that it's -- there's always some kind of ambush involved in the experience.

"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." Conan O'Brien

“Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me” - Sarah Bernhardt

“The way you let your hand rest in mine, my bewitching Sweetheart, fills me with happiness. It is the perfection of confiding love. Everything you do, the little unconscious things in particular, charms me and increases my sense of nearness to you, identification with you, till my heart is full to overflowing” - Woodrow Wilson

“Love is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings remain forever”

“There are two golden rules for an orchestra: start together and finish together. The public doesn't give a damn what goes on in between.” ~ Sir Thomas Beecham

“You are the music, while the music lasts” - TS Eliot

"Applause begets applause in the theatre, as laughter begets laughter and tears beget tears." CLAYTON HAMILTON, "Theory of the Theatre" "I think theater ought to be theatrical ... you know, shuffling the pack in different ways so that it's -- there's always some kind of ambush involved in the experience.

The following are not famous quotes.
I came across them all when reading a Play Analysis book for school.
I thought they applied to life relatively well, but that might just be because I'm strange.

"The nature of drama decrees that the protagonist and antagonist be personified in some way."

"In drama, it does not work to have the main character opposing himself."


And here's a lovely little line from the Aeneid (book 1, 823-825):

"...may they
and your own consciousness of acting well
reward you as they should"

This isn't my favorite, but I saw it on a t-shirt today:

"I'm like a superhero, but without the powers or the motivation."

EDIT: Can't spell "saw."
