Best quote ever:

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt

"Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning. The tragedy of man is that he doesn't know how to distinguish between day and night. He says things at night that should only be said by day."

-Dawn

Believe that I love you - for I do

Believe that I'm yours for forever - for I am

Believe 

It's from the 'Lion in Winter'

The king had his wife kept in a tower for years and she came back just to tell him this. I wish I could find it again but don't have the film. It maybe sounds a bit naff taken out of context but it is a very moving part of the film.

Scarlet O'Hara "After all tomorrow  is another day"

A quotation that has always sustained me in bad times.

Having read Billy's quote from Theodore Roosevelt, it is so true and identifies a current problem in the world.

These quotes  make me feel sentimental:

The angels stand between us and God, but they are translucent, even transparent, and they beckon us to penetrate their luminosity.  -- Peter Wilson

While we are sleeping, angels have conversations with our souls.

Ones that make me ponder on life:

Life unfolds on a sheet called time and once finished is gone forever- Chinese

One moment of patience may ward off great disaster, one moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.

-Chinese

An inch of time is an inch of gold but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold. 

Ones that make me laugh:

"Operator! Give me the number for 911!" Homer Simpson.

Jim Carrey, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

If I'm not back in five minutes...

…………………...........................................just wait longer.
