Day 5 of 30: My Favorite Quotations (NOT Quotes!)

Again, that title is plural, so there will be more than one quotation in this post. Let's get right to it:

"Who's more foolish: the fool, or the fool who follows him?"
-- Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars: A New Hope

[Holding a stop sign] "When a guy holds this, he means, 'Hey! Stop!' When a woman holds this--if she wrote this, it would say, 'If you really knew me, you'd know what you should do right now.'"
-- Tim Taylor, Home Improvement

"You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!"
-- The Apostle Paul, 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NLT)

"Oh, don't ever go to Pluto! It's a Mickey Mouse planet!"
-- Mork, Mork & Mindy

"If you want, you can do...anything."
-- Anneliese van der Pol, That's So Raven co-star

"Shoot for the moon. Whether you hit or miss, you'll die from lack of oxygen."
-- Me (seriously!)

"There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."
-- Jesus, John 15:13 (NLT)

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
-- The Declaration of Independence

"People in other countries are probably like, 'Look at those dumb Americans! They can't even choose who they want to be their leader!'"
-- My mom, during the 2000 election

"What if everything that you see, is more than what you see? The person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it or accept that there is more to the world than you think. Perhaps it is really a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things."
-- Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Star Fox and Pikmin

"I wanna know, did she ever walk into his room and say, 'Good night! Clean up this mess! Were you born in a barn?!!'"
-- Mark Lowry, on Jesus' childhood

"If you think this is hot..."
-- A local Baptist church's sign one summer

"Knowing that somebody is wrong for you doesn't change the way that you feel."
-- Lizzie McGuire

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today."
-- An old friend of mine

I'll finish it up with a very brief, yet very powerful quotation:
"Jesus wept."

-- John 11:35
