captivating quotations from movies, television, literature and people - curated by actual geeks.
I’ll be a poet, a writer, a dramatist. Somehow or other I’ll be famous, and if not famous, I’ll be notorious.

I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
Yet each man kills the thing he loves,

The koward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!
A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.
