Quotes incorporated into your thoughts and speech

Postby Scarlet » Thu Jan 24, 2013 3:15 am

What quotes from movies, books, television shows or other sources have you incorporated into your everyday thinking and speaking? Lines such as Yoda's "Do. Or do not. There is no try.", or Gandalf's "This too shall pass". Lines that become a part of how you think, approach life, or communicate with others.

"No worries". I blame Outback Steakhouse. (I kid).
"There's always money in the banana stand". Came from Arrested Development.
"Don't panic." Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Along with nearly every other quote in the book. That series shaped my adulthood.
"Boat drinks." from Things to do in Denver When You're Dead. Good, happy way to think about reuniting with old friends when life's over.

Those are just the first off the top of my head.

you are here--that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

One of mine is Whitman, too: "Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself." (And not to be weird, I just think "I am large; I contain multitudes.")
