    A few from my Goodreads favorite quotes:

    "I warn you, if you bore me, I shall take my revenge."
    — J.R.R. Tolkien

    "I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
    "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
    — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."
    — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    "You've reached Fangtasia, where the undead live again every night," "For bar hours, press one. To make a party reservation, press two. To talk to alive person or a dead vampire, press three. Or, if you were intending to leave a humorous prank message on our answering machine, know this: we will find you."
    — Charlaine Harris

    "Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before."
    — Mae West

    From Viz letters recently:

    I WAS in a pub toilet recently. It was immaculately clean and fresh smelling and a sign on the door read 'Please leave this toilet as you'd expect to find it.' Reluctantly, I smeared **** on the walls, pissed on the seat, bust the lock and ****ed off with the bog roll.

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king.
    Tolkien


    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
    Edmund Burke

    Timon: They're fireflies, that got stuck up in that big, bluish-black thing.
    Pumbaa:Oh. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away.
    Timon: Pumbaa, with you, everything's gas.

    "The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't always spoil the good things and make them unimportant." -- Doctor Who
