A Quote, A Quote, My Kingdom For A Quote

First off, thank you all for checking out 4 Corners. I appreciate it so much, you're the best. *hugs*

Today I am going to share my top five favorite quotes if that's cool with you. (Honestly it doesn't matter if it isn't considering I am not consulting before I post the entry. If you wanted something else you should have said something sooner.)Anyway, without further adieu and in no order:

~ "Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." -Friedrich Neitzsche

~ "Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter."
-Oscar Wilde

~ "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." -Hamlet Act 1 William Shakespeare

~ "I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes." -Hunter S. Thompson

~ "There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane, he had to fly them. If he flew them, he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to, he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle." -Catch 22 Joseph Heller

There are so many wonderful quotes out there. I have a little one from an Emily Dickenson poem that speaks to me a bit today. "She rose to his requirement, dropped The playthings of her life To take the honorable work Of woman and of wife." It's such a thankless job some days. Damn men. LOL

I don't have a favorite quote..."It's not a matter of the remarkable words of other, just a matter of remembering them long enough to live by them or repeating them"....Me

Ahahaaha I love your quote Christine. I have a feeling it will go down in history. We should start you a wiki-quotes page.
