Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. You're stuck with this undefinable whipped-mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while, there's a peanut butter cup, or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast, the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits, filled with hardened jelly and teeth-crunching nuts, and if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you've got left is an empty box filled with useless, brown paper wrappers. - The X Files

So many good quotes

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
"Sir Winston Churchill"

Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
"Sir Winston Churchill"

We shall show mercy, but we shall not ask for it.
"Sir Winston Churchill"

Gotta love Churchill quotes, everything that came out of his mouth seemed to be quotable.

It is not these well-fed long-haired men that I fear, but the pale and the hungry-looking.
"Julius Ceasar"

And finaly my favorites

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
"Abraham Lincoln"

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
