From Tao Te Ching
Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.
If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.
from someone in everything that is star wars relevated:
Ive got a baaad feeling about this.....
And a little more Arnold
Im a great actor, cause i can shoot without blinking!

Here's from our beloved cat, Garfield:
I eat too much because I'm depressed, and I'm depressed because I eat too much. It's a vicious circle... that took years to perfect!
You know what is a "diet" is, don't you? It's "die" with a "t," that's what it is!
I shall now attempt to eat a diet lunch consisting of one leaf of lettuce lightly seasoned with ... one quart of Mayonnaise !
I'm not messy. I'm organizationally challenged !
Show me a good mouser, and I'll show you a cat with bad breath.
When the lasagna content in my blood gets low, I get mean.

My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.

"Millwall, Millwall, you're all really dreadful, and your girlfriends are unfullfilled and alienated"
Um, i don't know if my quote is appropriate for this thread because it really long, but i just felt the need to share since it is one of my very favorite passages. XD
"When one has made the decision to kill a person, even if it will be very difficult by advancing straight ahead, it will not do to go about it in a long roundabout way. One's heart may slacken, he may miss his chance, and by and large there will be no success. The Way of the Samurai is one of immediacy, and it is best to dash in headlong.
When a certain man was going to the sutra readings at the Jissoin in Kawakami, one of his pages got drunk on the ferryboat and began to pester one of the sailors. When they landed on the other side, as the page had drawn his sword, the sailor took a pole and struck him in the head. At that time the other sailors all ran up together carrying oars and were at the point of striking the page down. However, as the master passed by with an air of not knowing what was happening, one of the other pages ran back and appologized to the sailors. Then, pacifying his comrade, he acompanied him home. That night the page that had been drunk learned that his sword was being taken away from him.
Now, first of all, it was an insufficiency on the master's part not to have reproved and pacified the drunken page while they were on the boat. Furthermore, even though his page had acted unreasonably, after he had been struck on the head there was no reason for an appology. The master should have approached the sailor and the drunken page in an appologetic manner and cut them both down. Certanly he was a spiritless master."
~Yamamoto Tsunetomo (translated by William Scott Willson)
Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai

From Japan's greatest swordsman:
All things entail rising and falling timing. You must be able to discern this.
Do nothing which is of no use.
Perceive that which cannot be seen with the eye.
Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.
Generally speaking, the Way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death.
You win battles by knowing the enemy's timing, and using a timing which the enemy does not expect.
how about some soccer quotes: (i know a lot here loves soccer)
I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion. - Mia Hamm (American female Soccer Player. b.1972)
A champion is someone who does not settle for that day´s practice, that day´s competition, that day´s performance. They are always striving to be better. They don´t live in the past. - Briana Scurry quotes (Olympics 1996 American Soccer Player, b.1971)
I don´t believe there is such a thing as a born´ soccer player. Perhaps you are born with certain skills and talents, but quite frankly it seems impossible to me that one is actually born to be an ace soccer player. - Pele
When football stars disappear, so do the teams, and that is a very curious phenomenon. It is like in the theatre, in a play, where there is a great star. If the star is not well, the whole cast suffers. - Pele
Even if there was a hand, it was the hand of God. - Diego Maradona, after scoring with his hand against England at World Cup ´86
Born to kill
Trained to fight
Ready to die
But never will
