What is your all-time favorite quote, whether from someone famous or a friend of family member?
I am fascinated by quotes. My favorite is by Richard Bach: Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they're yours.
If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under. Ronald Reagan
"In the beginning, the Universe was created. This has made a great deal of people angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." -- Douglas Adams, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
all mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated - John Donne (part of 'Meditation 17')
This is a new one for me, very meaningful. Thank you for commenting. I like the "better language" part, hope that is true.
You are very welcome. I really loved this quote from the moment I heard it in high school. So whenever I am asked what's my favorite quote, it's that one
I'm a bit of a quote fanatic but I would guess mine would have to be:
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
