I was always jealous of these 2 quotes chosen by my friends senior year
“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?”
It’s suggesting that, to achieve anything worthwhile, a person should attempt even those things that may turn out to be impossible.
“Win if you can, lose if you must, but always, always cheat”
-Jesse “The Body” Ventura
If you’re an athlete:
“To be the man you have to beat the man”
If you’re rebellious or proud or angry:
“Better to die on your feet than live on your knees”
-often attributed to Emiliano Zapata but may be Dolores Ibarruri’s quote. Both of them were revolutionaries, though Zapata of course is a world-wide legend
If you’re a fun-loving type or a player:
“I used to have a wild time with three women until 5 a.m., but I am getting older. In the Olympic Village here, I will live it up with five women, but only until 3 a.m.”
If you’re an aspiring millionaire:
“I’ll keep it short and sweet – Family. Religion. Friendship. These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business.”
2 of my favorites which apply to everything in life:
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will no t; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Usually the last and/or second to last sentences are quoted
Finally, “The strongest of all warriors are these two: time and patience.”
Grandpa: “My Homer is not a communist. He may be a liar, a pig, an idiot, a communist, but he is not a porn star”
Homer: “How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain.”
Ralph: “Me fail English? That’s unpossible.”
Chief Wiggum: “I hope this has taught you kids a lesson: kids never learn.”
Principal Skinner: “Up yours, children”
Homer: Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?
Homer: When will I learn? The answers to life’s problems aren’t at the bottom of a bottle. They’re on TV!
Homer: Of course I’m not mad. If something’s hard to do, then it’s not worth doing!
Homer: Beer - now there’s a temporary solution.
Homer: To alcohol! The cause of - and solution to - all of life’s problems!
Milhouse: “But my Mom says I’m cool”
Lord, this has turned into a long post!
