New Favorite Quotes Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay, I know there was one of these before, but the wonderful search won't let me look for "quote" unless I search for "quotes"...

So to share more fun with famous/inspiring/wtf?!? quotes, post your favorites!

Some of my new favorites:

“One of the greatest journeys in life is overcoming insecurity and learning to truly not give a s***.â€

― J.A. Konrath

“Our envy always lasts longer than the happiness of those we envy.â€

― François de La Rochefoucauld

“I'm interested in the fact that the less secure a man is, the more likely he is to have extreme prejudice.â€

― Clint Eastwood
