"Empty your mind. Be like water.
Put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.
Put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
Put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, it can creep, drip or crash!!!
Be water, my friend. "

-Bruce Lee

Some of my personal favorites,

"Live free or Die" - NH's State Motto, General John Stark

And perhaps one of the greatest quotes showing someones true colors,

"America is not worth dying for!" Cindy Sheehan, April 2005

A few of my favourite "Bushisms":

"When you have your own money, it means you've got more money to spend"
"I promise you I will listen to what has been said here, even though I wasn't here"
"Border relations between Canada and Mexico have never been better"
"You teach a child to read and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test."

And the best one:
"I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe -- I believe what I believe is right"
