Let's start with a few of my favourite quotes since I was a teenager -- obviously they say something about me and what I find profound, absurd or simply amusing; you'll find many of them also quite apropos for dealing with life in Wikipedia:

"You see, in this world, there is one awful thing, and that is that everyone has his reasons." -- Jean Renoir, The Rules of the Game
"England has been offered a choice between war and shame. She has chosen shame, and will get war." -- Winston Churchill on the Munich Agreement
"Thank God I'm still an atheist." -- Luis Bunuel
"My dear Rikki," Karellen retorted, "it's only by not taking the human race seriously that I retain what fragments of my once considerable mental powers I still possess!" -- Arthur C. Clarke, Childhood's End
"The Englishman sighed softly, as if slightly puzzled by the ability of Man to complicate unnecessarily his own existence here on earth." -- Frederick Forsyth, The Day of the Jackal
"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here -- this is the War Room!" -- President Merkin Muffley, Stanley Kubrick's Dr Strangelove
