I was just pondering some of my favourite quotes, had a quick search, discovered not surprisingly this topic has been visited before but since the thread was so old I thought I'd start a new one. And besides sequels can be fun.
So what's your favourite saying, quote or proverbs?
To kick it off my fav is:
"I like deadlines. I like the swooshing sound they make as they fly past." Douglas Adams

I don't have the exact saying, but the paraphrasing is
"Each person only has so much time left on the earth. Anytime they spend singing stops the clock"

Hah, I've always liked that one, but you have to be him to get away with that, I have to meet my deadlines.

I laugh so much when Roy says this line. The first time I heard him say it I was literally in stitches, my stomach hurt so bad from laughing. It's so true! :rofl:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted."
- Charlie Chaplin
"It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it."
- Somerset Maugham
And there is a whole book of motivational quotes I have too! I love quotes!

Wow, that Somerset Maugham quote rocks!
This one is just plain fascinating to me:
