Unhappy So Quotable

Ever read a book/watch a film/binge a series/play a game/listen to a song and read/hear something so quotable that it sends chills down your spine?

This thread is for collecting those quotes—from badass oneliners to whole paragraphs of literary genius.

Feel more than free to talk a bit about what the quotes you post mean to you personally and/or how it made you feel upon hearing/reading it.

Naturally, use spoilers tags at your discretion.

I want to start off with a few literary favourites of my own.

Ray Bradbury, ‘Fahrenheit 451’ wrote: “My grandfather ran off the V-2 rocket film a dozen times and then hoped that someday our cities would open up more and let the green and the land and the wilderness in more, to remind people that we're allotted a little space on earth and that we survive in that wilderness that can take back what it has given, as easily as blowing its breath on us or sending the sea to tell us we are not so big. When we forget how close the wilderness is in the night, my grandpa said, someday it will come in and get us for we will have forgotten how terrible and real it can be. You see?”
John Heller, ‘Catch-22’ wrote: ”Major Major had been born too late and too mediocre. Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them. With Major Major it had been all three. Even among men lacking all distinction he inevitably stood out as a man lacking more distinction than all the rest, and people who met him were always impressed by how unimpressive he was.”
Jane Austen, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ wrote: ”...I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding—certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of other so soon as I ought, nor their offences against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost is lost forever."


Also...

A quote from ‘The Boondocks’ S3 E3
Ed Wuncler wrote: "This team is pathetic. They don't stand a chance against the Chinese. Not one single goddamn shot in hell. It'll be an embarrassment they'll never, ever live down for the rest of their miserable lives until they die. You know what one of these balls can do to a human body? They'll get torn to pieces. Ripped to shreds. Some may even lose control of their bowels. By the third inning, they'll be pissing and shitting on themselves right in front of their friends and loved ones. It's going to be flat out fucking terrible."

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, 'This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President' wrote: The root cause of conflict is not simply poverty but poverty brought on by exclusion. Exclusion in its broadest context: exclusion from resources, from power, from education and information, from the opportunity to better one's life.
Alain de Bottom, 'Late at night with Kylie' in The Philosophers' Mail wrote: But that's the challenge of art - to glamourise the important but neglected areas of experience.

Just about anything by Dorothy Parker will make my day.

“Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.”

“If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.”

“The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue.”

“Tell him I was too fucking busy-- or vice versa.”

“You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.”

“Brevity is the soul of lingerie.”

“His voice was as intimate as the rustle of sheets.”

“That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.”

The crack of doom is coming soon.
Let it come,
It doesn't matter.

This is in the front of my most favourite book at all time, that I'm otherwise incapable of quoting from because it's all just too damn good, Kevin Brooks' The Road of the Dead.

"I knew your every intention before you did." Moebius, Soul Reaver 2. He's not bluffing, he can literally see the future. It's such a great reminder of how dangerous he is after he spent the game up to now pretending to be weak.

"If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change" Michael Jackson, Man in the Mirror. A song you hear so much, and then one day actually pay attention to the lyrics and realise 'wow, that's a great message.'

From FFVIIxMobius event "Fatal Calling".
Warrior of Light: I think if you stood, you could beat him. Of course, standing's pretty hard for a puppet.

Cloud Strife: Who you calling "puppet"? If the past is tying me down...I'll cut the strings!
I love Cloud's response so much because it is exactly the lesson I had to learn in order to move on from my depression.
