What's your favorite quote?

Big, little, bumper sticker, philosopher, funny, somber... What are some of your favorite quotes? Do you have any that you mentally go back to in times of struggle or joy?

Personally, my "pick a quote for the day" moments tend to come in twos. One that's of a serious nature and one that's funny or sardonic and lightens the mood.

Share some that you like. Hell, toss in a short poem if you like. Just share some of the words that mean something and maybe what they do for you if you wish.

Today, my serious quote would be:
“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow. ”
~Mary Anne Radmacher

As for my funny/smart ass quote:
"In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!"
~Dr. Seuss

Oh, and the word "Molestifuckate" which I learned here on Lit though I'm not sure who first posted it.

My favorite serious is either the one below, by Bill Cosby, or Ecc 3:1 (To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.)

My favorite funny changes regularly. Recently I saw a shirt that said 'the voices in my head have good ideas', so it's my favorite funny right now.

Dunno whose it is, but I live by "Everything is always okay in the end, if it’s not okay, then it’s not the end."

It just goes along with the line of thought that we are all facets of a universe that's just trying to experience and understand itself subjectively.

Ah. Seems like a fairly intriguing concept. I shall have to remember to come back and contemplate it when my emotions shut up and let my higher brain function return. There's nugget of golden wisdom in there somewhere, it's just hard to pick out that the moment.

"But man postpones or remembers; he does not live in the present, but with reverted eye laments the past, or, heedless of the riches that surround him, stands on tiptoe to foresee the future. He cannot be happy and strong until he too lives with nature in the present, above time."

~Emerson
