    I was going to make a blog post about this, but then I realized that it would make a good conversation thread. I'm sure that we all have quotes that we find personally relevant, whether from books, music, film, games, or otherwise (while this could fit in other areas, this seemed to be the best subforum, as the subject involves the written word in one form or another). What quotes hold significance for you? You may feel free to simply list them or to also explain what they mean to you. I shall begin by just listing a handful, but I welcome any and all questions about them, so feel free to ask. I think it might be nice to have that be part of this thread's purpose.

    (I did run a few searches, but was unable to find any other threads similar to this. I apologize if I missed one, so I understand if this needs to be merged.)
