These days we gain a tremendous amount of 'information'. We are all exposed daily to all forms and types of media and also gain 'knowledge' through conversation/interaction with our family, friends, work colleagues and the general public...all have provided an endless source of 'memorable and pertinent' quotes - some will be remembered for ever...a couple of my favourites are:

"I'm a vegetarian and the only meat that enters my mouth, leaves happy and has a heartbeat" ...Pamela Anderson

"You can always pick your friends, but you cannot pick your friend's nose"...Groucho Marx

"Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough"...Groucho Marx

"Have you got a light, mac? No, but I've got a dark brown overcoat!"...Vivian Stanshall

Just a few, do you have any...?

One I've always liked is -

The difference between dreams and reality is purely desire

It's from an advert for the WWE but I'm not sure if they made it up or nicked it from someone else.

Generally, it's just something I didn't truly understand, a bit like *runs* which is neither clever or correct.

Anyway a brilliant outlook on life is how Bill Bailey opened up his part troll tour.

To all of you, your examples are brilliant - some are very funny and some extremely pertinent and pointed and I can see why you've chosen them - these all need remembering.

@2002- just a number?

Do you mean me or people in general:)

Denis Leary had a good healthy outlook on life:

“Most people think life sucks, and then you die. Not me. I beg to differ. I think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills but you work hard for thirty-five years and you pay it back and then -- one day -- you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, you have to limp along the streets and speak out of the left side of your mouth and drool but you go into rehabilitation and regain the power to walk and the power to talk and then -- one day -- you step off a curb at Sixty-seventh Street, and BANG you get hit by a city bus and then you die. Maybe.” (from No Cure for Cancer)

I've got a song called Cycling Trivialities with basically that line in that works for me too

Who cares in a hundred years from now, who'll remember all the players, who'll remember all the clowns?

But then Jose Gonzalez didn't have to worry about Skynet becoming self-aware so it's slightly less stressful I think

Whenever I get stressed over anything I think of this quote and instantly de-stress.

I thought as much, I was just making sure it wasn't highlighting something you took exception to, or something that's similarly hard to decipher online (sincerity for example).
