I have had the same “Favorite Quotes” on my facebook page ever since I started using it. Actually, I’ve had the same quotes from the days even before facebook when I still maintained a Myspace page. So tonight I decided it was time to begin anew. I didn’t want to just get rid of them all though, I thought I would save them on my blog for posterity’s sake. Some are funny, others are just quotes that I found to be very true.
“A fool and his money are soon elected.”
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
"Dear God, I'm sorry for my anger and frustration, but I wanted to thank you for this day. This horrible, awful, hot, sticky, terrible day, in which I have been totally, totally humiliated; because if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have had any day at all. So I thank you. Love, Monica. Amen"
-Monica on Touched by an Angel-
"I claim this planet in the name of Mars! Isn't that lovely?"
-Marvin the Martian in "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century"-
“Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”
"Happy Birthday, you thing from another world, you!"
-Porky Pig in "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century"-
"My dad said I had the IQ of plankton and I was pleased"
-Miss. Evangelista on Doctor Who-
"Nana Possible! You think your lemon squares are 'All That!' But they're not!!!"
-Dr. Drakken on "Kim Possible-
And now, what will I replace them with? Well, I will add to them over time, but for starters, I just bought the DVD Megamind today, and it is PACKED full of hilarious one liners. I’ve picked out two that just crack me up every time I hear them.
“Oh! I’m shaking in my custom baby seal leather boots!”
“UGH! Girls! Girls! You’re both pretty! Can I go home now?”
-Roxanne Richie in “Megamind”-
I just want to use one, so I’m going with the baby seal leather quote. It’ll go up tonight, and when I hear something else that I just can’t get out of my head, that’s where it will go.
