John’s quotation collection

I clearly have a quotation problem. I like them way too much, and I consider profound or at least worth saving anything said by anyone famous (and some not so famous) that sounds wise, valuable, deep, clever, or insightful. I even have a quotation about my collection of quotations: “The majority of those who put together collections of verses or epigrams resemble those who eat cherries or oysters; they begin by choosing the best and then end by eating everything.” (Sébastien Chamfort)

Well, here are what I consider the greatest quotations from across the span of time, on everything from philosophy to sports, by people from Socrates to Homer Simpson.

Religious quotes

Science quotes

Sports quotes

Miscellaneous quotes

Movie, TV, and song lines
