Default OT: What are your favorite Quotes?

not by a player or sports figure, but in general. relating to life, etc

some pretty good ones off my head are:

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who matter don't mind and those who mind, don't matter.

Behind every great fortune there is a crime.

some more i can't think of
