I don't know about anyone else, but I love the 'Bartemius says' quotes at the bottom of every YWS page. Do you have a favorite? Have you ever said something that your friends will never let you forget? Has poet, comedian, or a character on a TV show ever said something that just suck with you?
This isn't that hard to figure out. Quote away!

My favorite quote is from The Notebook.

"it's not gonna be easy. it's gonna be really hard.
we're gonna have to work at this every day,
but I want to do that because I want you.
I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day."
- The Notebook
"I'm yet happy and sad at the same time and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be." -Stephen Chbosky

This one has been running in my head the past two days:

"I'm so very happy, as happy as can be! Just because I'm happy doesn't mean I'm loony toony" -Daffy Duck.

So very random but so very profound.

This whole thing is one conversation. It's from Scarecrow by Matthew Reilly.

"We going that way, sir?" -Clark

"Nope. We're going in the other direction, but to do that we need to blow open that sea gate." -Schofield

"Blow open the sea gate?" -Clark

"This is standard. He destroys things-" -Book

Next one, from the same book.

"This is Fairfax." -Fairfax

"Mr. Fairfax, this is Shane Schofield." -Schofield

"Hey Captain Schofield. Nice to hear from you. So, what have you destroyed today?" -Fairfax

"I flooded a Typhoon-class submarine, levelled a building, and launched a ballistic missile to destroy a maintenance facility." -Schofield

"Slow day, huh?" -Fairfax
There once was a cat.
He wasn’t particularly fat.
Fuzzy was his favorite mat.
And really, that was that.

Oh, but did you really think so?
Keep reading, it’s just the start of the show!
And as for how far this tale will go…
Well, even the cat doesn’t know.

Matthew Reillys my favourite author of all time, can't wait for five greatest warriors (his next book).

A few weeks ago an emo at my school said this.

"Hope is the denial of reality, despair is the realisation of truth" - Some random emo from my school.

"The price of greatness is responsibility" - Whinston Churchill

"Never try, never fail." On that movie Robots the orange one with wheels says it.

"Valor is the contempt of death and pain" Sun Tzu's The art of war

I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
