|1||To be, or not to be, that is the question.|
|2||Stop in the name of love, before you break my heart.|
|3||It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.|
|4||I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.
|5||In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.|
|6||A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.|
|7||Good fences make good neighbors.|
|8||Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.|
|9||If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.|
All my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
|11||All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.|
|12||Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.|
|13||You've got to ask yourself one question: do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?|
|14||How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.|
|15||Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.|
|16||Oh, say, can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red flare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof, through the night,
That our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free,
And the home of the brave?
|17||Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me.
|18||Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.|
|19||Alas, my love, you do me wrong, to cast me off discourteously.|
|20||In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.|
|21||Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands!|

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And we'll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions!
No time for losers,
'Cause we are the champions of the world.
|31||Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.|
|32||It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
|33||"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes – and ships – and sealing-wax –
Of cabbages – and kings –
And why the sea is boiling hot –
And whether pigs have wings."
|34||You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.|
|35||Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast.|
|36||My loneliness is killing me, and I,
I must confess, I still believe.
When you're not with me I lose my mind.
Give me a sign; hit me baby one more time.
|37||No news is good news.|
|38||It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.|
|39||The Queen of Hearts
She baked some tarts,
All on a summer's day;
The Knave of Hearts
He stole the tarts,
And took them clean away.
|40||Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.|
|41||Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!|
|42||In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let all who worship evil's might beware my power – Green Lantern's light!|

|44||Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
|45||I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
|46||I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
|47||The road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
|48||Open the pod bay door, Hal.|
|49||So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"|

Old time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

|53||What light through yonder window breaks?|
|54||I want to be where the people are;
I want to see, want to see them dancing,
Walking around on those – what do you call them – oh, feet.
Flipping your fins you don't get too far;
Legs are required for jumping, dancing,
Strolling along down a – what's that word again – street,
Up where they walk,
Up where they run,
Up where they stay all day in the sun,
Wandering free –
Wish I could be
Part of that world...
|55||To see a World in a grain of sand,
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour.
Your goal, the sky
Your aim, the star.
|57||I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth I knew not where.
|58||We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
|59||My mama always said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get."|
|60||Drink to me only with thine eyes
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup
And I'll not look for wine.
|61||Hush-a-bye, baby, in the tree top,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock;
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

A partridge in a pear tree.

|66||Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!|
|67||Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailing man, the Skipper brave and sure
Five passengers set sail that day for a three-hour tour, a three-hour tour.
|68||The paths of glory lead but to the grave.|
|69||We shall not flag or fail. 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.|
|70||Neither a borrower nor a lender be.|
|71||Come live with me, and be my love;
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dales and fields,
Woods or steepy mountain yields.
|72||Hope springs eternal in the human breast.|
|73||Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye;

Baked in a pie.

As three blind mice?

|84||Early to bed and early to rise,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
|85||I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical,
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical.

I'm telling ya. Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know's on third.
You don't know the fella's name?
Well then, who's playing first?
I mean, the fella's name on first base.
The fella playing first base for St. Louis?
The guy on first base.
Who is on first!

And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.

The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes.

To have a thankless child.
|98||The road to hell is paved with good intentions.|

She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
|101||You talking to me? You talking to me? You talking to me? Then who the hell else are you talking to? You talking to me? Well, I'm the only one here. Who do the fuck do you think you're talking to?|

|103||Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.|
|104||An apple a day keeps the doctor away.|

Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.

'Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la!
Don we now our gay apparel, fa la la, la la la, la la la!
Troll the ancient yuletide carol, fa la la la la, la la la la!
|115||Make hay while the sun shines.|

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils.

With their kingly forest robes to the sky,
Where Alma Mater dwelleth with her chosen band,

The mountains! the mountains! we greet them with a song,
Whose echoes, rebounding their woodland heights along,
Shall mingle with anthems that winds and fountains sing,
Till hill and valley gaily, gaily ring!
