After a quick scan through on the search I was unable to find a topic like this so I'll start.

Simple.. state a quote that you find amusing/insightful/or just well put.
Make sure you say who came up with it.. and if it's a one liner you thought up yourself, then just put your matazone board name as the quote writer. I plan on using this post a lot.. because I have a lot of quotes I like.

Here's one

"In America, through pressure of conformity, there is freedom of choice, but nothing to choose from.
- Peter Ustinov"


--------------------
"I'm an introvert, I think you're wonderful and I like you, but please now shush"
"Science is just organised common sense"
"All generalizations are dangerous, even this one."
"You are unique, just like everybody else."

One is not born a woman, but becomes one. - Simone de Beauvoir

Every sort of expert knowledge and every inquiry, and similarly every action and undertaking, seems to seek some good. Because of that, people are right to affirm that the good is 'that which all things seek'...

I thought this might be the best place to stick some classic student quotations:

From a very low ability english group

Student A: God you're such a Dildo

Student B: Excuse me, but I am not a vibrating plastic phallus!!

Me: Crying with laughter

Smiler and I met a couple of my drama kids in town this weekend whilst I was modelling my new work shirt.

Student A: Oh Hi Miss how are you?

Me: Fine

Student A: (noticing my shirt with "Matazone" over the breast pocket) Oh is that where you work miss?

Student B: No you div she works with us at the school!!!

Thought they might make you guys laugh

boundless as the sea,
my love as deep;

the more I give to thee,
the more I have,
for both are infinite.

I sold you and you sold me-"

"We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness."

"Oranges and lemons, say the bells of St. Clement's,
You owe me three farthings, say the bells of St. Matin's,
When will you pay me? say the balls of Old Bailey,
When I grow rich, say the bells of Shoreditch.
Here comes a candle to light up your bed,
here comes a chopper to chop off your head"

-1984 by George Orwell

Lord Tywin Lannister did not, in the end, shit gold"

-George R. R. Martin

"I don't want to hear you say that I will understand some day. I just want my life to be the same, just like it used to be. Some days I hate everything. I hate everything. Everyone and everything. Please don't tell me everything is wonderful-No!"

-Everclear.

"Reality is only an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

-Albert Einstein.

"There is no life I know, to compare with pure imagination. Living there you'll be free, if you truly wish to be."

Also, I'm liking the badge on my coat lapel. You may have heard of "I can smell your brains" Its causing some very odd looks

"It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination."

"My doctor says that I have a malformed public-duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fibre and that I am therefore excused from saving universes."

Douglas Adams, Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe.
