"Wat da facks dis sheet"....

Aussie john james, big brother 2010.

Not in the same league of quotes but a humourous one to us all the same.:)

Will put a serious one now too though.Less a quote, really a couple of extracts of a speach by Mr Winston Churchill.

"I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our Island home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."


May be off the beaten track with this but, to any british man or women that speach still sends shivers of pure emotion and patriotism down the spine.

"Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." --- Bruce Lee

Here are two of my favorite quotes, one is from a television show the other is two poems from my favorite novelist.
T.V.:
"You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice-daily swill, but you can not break the spirit of a Winchester. My Vioce shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer." --Charles Emerson Winchester III - M.A.S.H. 4077

Wee Wisdom

When tempest-tossed,
Embrace chaos.

Reality

In the real world
As in dreams,
Nothing is quite
what it seems.

In the dream world
Or the real,
We can't know what
We can't feel.

Both come from "The Book of Counted Sorrows" by Dean Koontz

This is for Double-Deviance:

"I don't want to get any messages saying, "I am holding my position." We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn!"

~General Patton

This speech by sir Winston churchhill is the BEST and there will be no other like it, this is straight from his soul and heart and if you actually listen too it on youtube his voice sends shivers down your spine literally because you know in his voice death or freedom is the ONLY choice and there is no going back.
I agree you have to be English to understand.

As everyone has also changed the orginal subject this is my favourite poem.


i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Churchill again
-You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
- The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.

Masturbation is like procrastination, you think you're accomplishing something - but, in the end...you're just fucking yourself.

I think I thought that one up. I may have heard it somewhere else, though.

I just love the Churchill quotes - he had so many.

I'll give you the excerpt from Shakespear's "Henry V" speech as my next best thing......

"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead!" Rousing stuff.

Friedrich Nietzsche

"Be careful how you choose your enemy, for you will come to resemble him. The moment you adapt your enemy's methods your enemy has won. The rest is suffering and historical opera. "

39And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?

40The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

"Of course, part of the problem with redheads is that there aren't enough of them. They make up just two percent of the population. So they're pretty extraordinary. Redheads are too numerous to be ignored, too rare to be accepted."

No man is so foolish but he may sometimes give another good counsel, and no man so wise that he may not easily err if he takes no other counsel than his own. He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master.

"All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." Edgar Allan Poe


~ "She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces through the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She look'd down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott. "

A short while ago, BBC TV ran a series under the title "Coleman Balls". David Coleman was a football commentator whose goofs gave much pleasure to many viewers. Here are five quotes from the "Coleman Balls" programme.

(1) David Coleman during a football match, 0-0 after eighty minutes: "If neither of these sides scores a goal soon, this match is going to end up as a draw."

(2) During a televised snooker game: "He's going for the last red, and for those of you watching in black-and-white, the red is just behind the brown."

(3) During a boxing tournament involving a black-skinned boxer and a white-skinned boxer, Smith: "Both men are wearing red gloves and black shorts, Smith is the one wearing a white stripe down his shorts."

(4) The late John Arnott and Brian Johnston commentating on an England cricket match:
Brian Johnston: "Barrington is at first slip, crouching, legs wide open, hoping for a tickle."
Arnott: "You mean he's hoping for a catch, Brian."

(5) John Mottson, during an England-Germany football friendly in about 1978: the English team had two black players who became involved with the German defence in a goal-line scrap and set-to which the referee and linesmen had to sort out. Mottson: "Good heavens, I hope these Germans aren't racially prejudiced."
