If you're a great author and you're not mentioned here, you're not a great author.

History is the fiction we invent to persuade ourselves that events are knowable and that life has order and direction. That's why events are always reinterpreted when values change. We need new versions of history to allow for our current prejudices. - Calvin and Hobbes

Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant, filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don't always like. - Lemony Snicket

Life isn't about what happens to you, it's about how you handle what happens.- by Nicholas Evans, 'The Smoke Jumper'

Let them live in the stillness and know the flame. They will loose all and give all.- by William Nicholson, 'Firesong'

'After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.' - Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone)

'Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.' - Alice Hoffman (Practical Magic)

'And I, of course, am innocent of all but malice.' - Fiona, Sign of the Unicorn, by Roger Zelazny

'And if you're going to criticize me for not finishing the whole thing and tying it up in a bow for you, why, do us both a favor and write your own damn book, only have the decency to call it a romance instead of a history, because history's got no bows on it, only frayed ends of ribbons and knots that can't be untied. It ain't a pretty package, but then it's not your birthday that I know of so I'm under no obligation to give you a gift.' --Orson Scott Card, Alvin Journeyman

'because we are the people, and the people go on'--Ma Joad in 'The Grapes of Wrath' by John Steinbeck

'Death belongs to God alone. By what right do men touch that unknown thing?' - Victor Hugo, Les MisÚrables

'How can I help it?' he blubbered. 'How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.' "Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane." - 1984 (George Orwell)

'Life is a Gift Horse.' J.D. Salinger from 'Teddy'

'Life is pain. Anybody that says different is selling something.' -- Fezzik's mother, The Princess Bride

'Not all who wander are lost.' - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

'The surest sign that there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.' Calvin and Hobbes

*Constance nervously bites her thumbnail* Tybalt: Do you bite your thumb at me sir?! Constance: No! I just bite my nails, that's all. Tybalt: Do you bite your nails at me sir?! Constance: No I swear! Look, I'll never bite them again. This'll be a great chance for me to quit once and for all. Thanks. -- 'Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)'

A bore is a person who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company - John MacDonald in 'The Turquoise Lament', 1973

All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. - Animal Farm, George Orwell

Apparently the Dutch now prided themselves on being better at queues than the English, which was absurd, because standing cheerfully in line was the English national sport. - Orson Scott Card, Shadow Puppets

Behind them lay pain, and death, and fear. Ahead of them lay doubt, and danger, and fathomless mysteries. But they weren't alone. - The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

But what was there to warn about, besides the fact that he glowed in the dark? - Tamora Pierce

Certain things should just stay as they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone. - Holden, 'Catcher in the Rye'

Dad, how do soldiers killing each other solve the world's problems? - Calvin and Hobbes

Death: Weight doesn't come into it. My steed has carried armies. My steed has carried cities. Yea, he hath carried all things in their due time. But he's not going to carry you three. War: Why not? Death: It's a matter of the look of the thing. War: It's going to look pretty good, then, isn't it, the One Horseman and Three Pedestrians of the Apocalypse. (from Sourcery, by Terry Pratchett)
