Winston Churchill is my favourite. Here are a few examples:

"We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the Old."


"Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us now. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age, made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.' "

A quick word about oral contraception: I asked a girl to go to bed with me and she said, 'No.' --Woody Allen

When asked why she named her canary Onan, Dorothy Parker replied, "Because he is always spilling his seed on the ground."

Dorothy Parker and Clare Booth Luce were riding on an elevator together. When the door opened Luce motioned to the open door and said, "Age before beaty." And Parker walking out the door responded, "And pearls before swine."

Mark Twain ran his finger across a painting by James Whistler, which caused the artist to exclaim, "Don't touch that! Can't you see it isn't dry yet?" Twain responds, "I don't mind, I have gloves on."

Twain also once said of Cecil Rhodes, "I admire the man. I freely admit it. And when the time comes I shall obtain a piece of the rope as a keepsake."

And last but not least:

Epigram: A wisecrack that played at Carnagie Hall. --Oscar Levant

No idea to whom I should be giving credit for these quotes:

Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

Flying saucers are real. The Air Force doesn't exist.

Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.

One day my prince will come. He just took a wrong turn, got lost and is too stubborn to ask for directions.

"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations." Second Inaugural Address - Abraham Lincoln

"And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."
Inaugural Address - John F. Kennedy

"It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, "Peace! Peace!" -- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"
1775 speech to the Virginia Delegation in support of revolution, Patrick Henry

I think maybe 2 minutes before. It is still a great quote- especially when suffering with a lousy comm system and great failures in leadership. But that is for another thread.

I did a quick search (what I should have done in the first place) and found the quote did indeed origniate from Alan Shepherd:

It's a very sobering feeling to be up in space and realize that one's safety factor was determined by the lowest bidder on a government contract.

OTOH, the fact that the screenwriter from Armageddon used it was probably the best thing about an otherwise terrible film.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
