I just read all of these quotes. All 17 pages. And I have to say this is the best thread ever. And here are a few more (my pesonel favorites):
"To beer! The cause of, and solution too, all of life's problems"
-Homer J. Simpson
This was from a recent execution in Texas (within the past few years).
Executioner: “Sir, do you have any last words?”
Texas Prisoner: “Yep, tell the Governor he just lost my vote.”
“If it ain’t broke, fix it until it is”
Quoted by my Grandfather, who always swore that this was our family motto.

I didn't read through the whole thread as it's 161 posts and 9 pages, but I"ll post my favorite. It means quite a bit to me being a US Marine, and it happens to be in my signature.
"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they've made a difference in the world. Marines don't have that problem." -Ronald Reagan
My other fav is:
"Do, or do not, there is no try." -Yoda
