Edit: Let it be a thread just for book/comic/author's quotes from now on.


"There'll be plenty of time to rest in grave."
"Why are numbers beautiful? It's like asking, why is the 9th symphony of Beethoven beautiful. If you don't know why, know one can tell you. I know that numbers are beautiful. If they aren't, nothing is."
- Paul Erdös (Ths 1st quote is my perhaps my favourite.)

"I don't believe in natural science. I only believe in a priori truth."
"All generalizations -- perhaps except this one -- are false.["
"Either mathematics is too big for the human mind or human mind is more than a machine."
- Kurt Gödel

"My theory stands as firm as a rock; every arrow directed against it will quickly return to the archer. How do I know this? Because I have studied it from all sides for many years; because I have examined all objections which have ever been made against the infinite numbers; and above all because I have followed its roots, so to speak, to the first infallible cause of all created things."
- Georg Cantor

"If one were to gather 10 smartest men of the world, and asked them, what was the dumbest thing in existence, they could not find anything as stupid as astrology."
"Wir müssen wissen. Wir werden wissen.
We must know. We will know."
- David Hilbert

"Politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity."
"The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible."
-Albert Einstein

"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it."
- George Bernard Shaw

"When a thing has been said well, have no scruple. Take it and copy it."

"Next to being witty yourself, the best thing is to quote another's wit."

"There are two rules for success. (1) Never tell everything you know."
- Roger Lincoln

MGS4 spoilers!
"Everything has its beginning... but it doesn't start at "one". It starts long before that... in chaos. The world is born... from zero."
"Taking it back to one solves nothing. So long as sero remains, one will eventually grow to 100 again."
"The moment zero becomes one is the moment the world springs to life."
- Big Boss
"Unless the light is put out, the shadows cannot be erased. So long as there is light... erasing shadows will do no good."
- Liquid Ocelot

"I have a message for my fans. Whatever you want to do in this world, it is achievable. The most important thing that I've found, that perhaps you could use, is be passionate and enthusiastic in the direction that you choose in life, and you'll be a winner."<br />
- Steve Irwin AKA "The Crocodile Hunter"<br />
<br />
"I wirr continue to create games as rong as I rive."<br />
- Hideo Kojima

'Old Wellington, he scratched his bum.
He says, "Boney lad, thee's had thee fun."
My riflemen will win the day
Over the hills and far away.'- Dan Hagman Sharpe's Waterloo

'By what right does the Wolf judge the Lion? By what right?'-Jaime Lannister, A Storm of Swords

'[After Meera recounts a tale about the Tourney at Harrenhall]
Bran: "That was a good story. But it should have been the three bad knights who hurt the man, not their squires. Then the little man could have killed them all, and the mystery knight should win the tourney, defeating every challenger, and name the wolf maid queen of love and beauty."
Meera: "She was, but that's a sadder story."'
I like this quote because of what you know in the book. A few years later there is anouther tourney and there is a mystery knight who defeats all challengers. He wins the crown of 'Love and Beauty' and can give it to any woman he wants. He is revealed to be the heir apparent to the throne. He walks his horse past his own wife and gives the crown to 'The Wolf-Maid' who is supposed to marry a powerful lord. A month or two later the Prince kindaps the maid and it plunges the kingdom into a giant war. So even though that story is more in keeping with a traditional fairy tale, it ends in tragedy.

"Do you still love her?"
"Almost as much as I hate her."

This is a really cool one from 'All Quiet on the Western Front.'

[Paul is trapped in a shell crater with the body of a French soldier he has just mortally wounded.] Stop that! I can't listen to that. Why do you take so long to die? You're going to die anyway. No, no. You won't die. No, no, You won't die. They're only little wounds. You'll get home. You'll be all right. You'll get home long before I will. You know I can't run away. That's why you accuse me. I tell you I didn't want to kill you. I tried to keep you alive. If you jumped in here again, I wouldn't do it... You see, when you jumped in here, you were my enemy — and I was afraid of you. But you're just a man like me, and I killed you. Forgive me, comrade. Say that for me. Say you forgive me! Oh, no, you're dead! Only you're better off than I am — you're through — they can't do any more to you now. Oh, God! why did they do this to us? We only wanted to live, you and I. Why should they send us out to fight each other? If they threw away these rifles and these uniforms, you could be my brother, just like Kat and Albert. You'll have to forgive me, comrade. I'll do all I can. I'll write to your parents. I'll write to your wife. I'll write to her. I promise she'll not want for anything. And I'll help her, and your parents, too. Only forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive me....

Theres all kinds of cool ones from that film. My faves are the ones from Tjaden who talks about himself and the Kaiser as if they're best friends.

"Do you still love her?"
"Almost as much as I hate her."

Bridge guardian: What is the unladen flight speed of a sparrow?
King Arthur: Is it an African or Indian sparrow?
Bridge guardiqan: How should I know? AAAARRRGGHHHH!!

And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
