Top ten everlasting quotes

My picks:


“We do not know what we want and yet we are responsible for what we are – that is the fact.” – Jean-Paul Sartre

“Once the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box.” -Italian Proverb

“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” – Isaac Asimov

“Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything.” -Kurt Vonnegut

“I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We’ve created life in our own image.” – Stephen Hawking

“In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying.” – Bertrand Russell

“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

“Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so slightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners. Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible. “ – Virginia Woolf

“I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation.” – George Bernard Shaw

“It was such a lovely day I thought it a pity to get up.” – W. Somerset Maugham

And one extra, my favourite:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”- Dr. Seuss

Happy new year!
