    The rules: You may add a favorite quote here, but no more than one per person per day. It may be humorous, provocative, whatever. Cite the originator, if known. I'll start it off with one I heard yesterday:
    "Always remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else." (author unknown)

    "What are you, some kind of idiot?"

    - Me, to the guy in the rat cube next to me when he played his friggin' bluegrass crap too loud in the office.

    No offense to anyone who likes bluegrass, but this guy's an idiot.

    I first heard this quote while listening to Doug Wright's excellent Quills commentary. I like to throw it at homophobes. [​IMG]

    "Knowledge doth not one wise make."

    Peter Overduin - after working at a university and seeing how utterly trivial, fickle, pretentious and patronizing people can be when they get to put 'PHD' behind their name.
