What's your favourite quote or expression?

Asked by Gemini (495points) June 5th, 2010

I’m thinking of “thoughts of the day”, or profound, or inspiring quotes or expressions…...words to live by, etc. Sometmes I make my own cards and am always looking for nice thoughts to put inside, could be just one or a few lines.

This is probably my favorite quote:

“Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it.”
– from The Razor’s Edge.

I find myself reminding me of this idea fairly often, when I miss something or am sad something is over. It reminds me to just be glad it happened at all, and to live in the moment. Enjoy it while it lasts.

A new one I heard just yesterday; Passion is merely insanity in a cashmere sweater.

I denno if it’s cheery, true, or inspiring, but it’s catchy.

Alot. “Love isnt a feeling, its an ability” , “you don’t speel love you feel it” , “Life ain’t a rehersal, the camera’s always rollin’ , “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” , “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

And thats just non-musican quotes…dont get me started on those.
