It's been over 2 years since either of the previous quotes threads have been posted in, so I'm reviving both in this one thread.

EDIT: Whether amusing, poignant, or of the everday, feel free to post it here.

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.

I had been using that one as a sig quote for a while years ago, and it’s a good one.

It is…difficult… to find the words to heal others. So often the words we choose carry consequences. Regret is easy to cultivate. Because so much of it haunts the words we have said when only love should have been spoken.

Yet the lies of Melkor, the mighty and the accursed, Morgoth Bauglir, the Power of Terror and of Hate, sowed in the hearts of Elves and Men are a seed that does not die and cannot be destroyed; and ever and anon it sprouts anew, and will bear dark fruit even unto the latest days.

I may have posted this one some time in the past, but I like it so I'll post it again:

Quote from: Samuel Johnson
Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practice; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory.

The history of the world, my love
Is those below serving those up above
How gratifying for once to know
That those above will serve those down below
