Default "Quote"...I Wish I'd Said That

I was reading something the other day and this quote just jumped out at me an totally blew me away...

"Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go"

Wow...how true...I wish I'd said that.

I'm sure there are many profound quotes you've used in your time...Care to share ?

We watched the first X-Men movie again the other night.
This line always cracked me up:

In the scene where Magneto has them all bound up inside
the Statue of Liberty, somebody says "Storm - use your lightning"
Then Magneto says:
"Lightning? Inside a giant copper conductor? I thought you lived in a school."

Default Among many, many other quotes that I love

"Hey that's where you are."

"Hi, do I know you?"

"No, but that's where you are, you're there."

Always gets me laughing

One of my many favourites:

Youth is wasted on the young.

Which is making more sense the older I get.
