I could list favorite quotes all day long, here's a few of my favorites:

"The only difference between me and a madman is that I'm not mad."
- Salvador Dali

"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
- Martin Luther King Jr

"We have art to save ourselves from the truth."
- Friedrich Nietzsche

"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
- Mark Twain

"May the bridges I burn light the way"
-Dylan McKay

"Organization is the death of creativity."
- Pablo Picasso

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."
- Samuel Johnson

"It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them"
- Alfred Adler

And a handful from, Charles Bukowski:

“The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste your time voting.”

“Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink.”

"True revolution comes from true revolsion. When things get bad enough, the kitten will kill the lion."

My all-time favorite quote: "Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead."

"Marge, it takes two people to lie; one to lie and one to listen."

"I've had just about enough of this Vassar bashing!"

"If he's so smart, how come he's dead?"

"Shut up brain, or I'll poke you with a QTip!"

I should just find everything that Homer's ever said and post it, but why do that when someone else already has.

That's close to one of my favorite quotes

Mines long....

“Funny, I love baseball for almost the exact reasons you dislike it. I love the pace, I love that the game unfolds in its own time. Every other sport tries to force the drama of a game on you with a clock. Baseball plays outside of the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life. I deal with a timeclock every day at work. Get this and that done before 4PM, take your break at noon. Baseball simply says here is what has to be done. Sit back, relax, enjoy a beer, enjoy the day, we'll get there when we get there.

The batter/pitcher matchup can be one of the most intriguing and intense sporting event. The hitter guessing what the pitcher is going to do, the pitcher trying to fool the hitter. Great fastball hitters against power pitchers, crafty veterans against young studs. Clemens buzzing Piazza, Pujols glaring out at Lidge, anyone trying to squeeze a pitch into Bonds' strikezone without him putting it into the Cove. And while all that is going on you have the cat and mouse game of Pierre on first trying to find out exactly how far he can push his lead, the infielders moving back and forth from their stances, players in the batters box watching everything the pitcher does trying to gain an advantage. And thats all before the crack of the bat on contact when the field becomes alive with organized chaos. Runners scrambling around the bases, infielders diving for balls just out of their reach then quickly moving to cover their base or cutoff the throw, the catcher tossing the mask and moving up to block the plate, outfielders preparing to throw a rocket to home. The dust settles, everyone gets ready to do it all again.” -- Tavish

Yeah, Homer has long been a source of great quotes.

"Being eaten by a crocodile is just like going to a blender"

"I want to set the record straight: I thought the cop was a prostitute"
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

I have a few:

"It's in the refrigerator! The door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter is getting hard, and the jello's jiggling..." -Chick Hearn's catchphrase whenever the Lakers wrapped up a victory

"Someone said 'football is more important than life and death to you' and I said 'Listen, it's more important than that'." -Liverpool FC manager Bill Shankly

I find that Eric Cantona was always a good source for quotes:

"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea." -Eric Cantona

"I don't play against a particular team. I play against the idea of losing." -Eric Cantona

"When you are a rich man you are proud to own a Rolls Royce and when you are a poor man you are proud to own a Renault." -Eric Cantona

"If you're going through hell, keep going." -Winston Churchill

"Just when you think you know the answers, I change the questions." -Rowdy Roddy Piper

And who can forget:

"SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!!" -Charlton Heston
