Favorite Quotes

Well originally the prompt was for your favorite bible verse, but as I mentioned a few days ago, I'm not terribly religious, so I wouldn't be able to quote you a bible verse at all, let alone name a favorite.  So we're going to discuss favorite quotes instead.
Along with death...hope and rebirth begin.

I can't actually remember were I heard this one, it's been that long.  But it's always stuck with me.  A reminder that even though it doesn't seem like it at the time, good things will eventually come from the bad.  The whole circle of life thing.  But thinking of this quote has gotten me through some tough times.
Don't dream it, be it!  
Ahh, good old Dr. Frank-N-Furter from Rocky Horror.  Although the movie was incredibly campy, this quote is a good reminder to always go for your dreams.  Regardless of how out of reach they seem, we are nothing if we don't dream big.  And you never know if you could achieve those dreams unless you try.
If we backed off on everything because of words that Republicans found silly, we'd have a lot of pregnant teenagers and no healthcare.
And now a TV quote, this is from Donna Moss on The West Wing.  Don't let anyone talk you out of your convictions.  It doesn't matter if someone else thinks it's silly, if it's important to you then you should stand by it.  Don't listen to the naysayers, listen to your heart and what you think is right.
