My home page has a favourite quote on every page:
My favourite of the favourite - this one will only appeal to programmers, I'm afraid:

For the sceptic in us all:
"Just think of the tragedy of teaching children not to doubt." - Clarence Darrow
And for anyone who can look at the universe and not be amazed:
"Irrigation of the land with seawater desalinated by fusion power is ancient. It's called 'rain'." - Michael McClary

aonemantidlewave, you misquote 'Roy'
He says memories instead of things, but I'll let you off. And the last line in that bit is great too, "time to die".
Blade Runner has so many good lines, like, "If only you could see the things I have seen with your eyes."

'Men make their own history. What they can know is what they have made'.
(Cutural Writer - Orientalist)
Great application for the media and a fairly good maxim for positive productivity in life but usually associated with a corporate machination for dealing with foreign culture, ie British understanding of the East and Far East during Victorian times. Later used in association with Western views on the Arabic world. See topical too.
"Is it your fault that Bronn's an insolent, black-hearted rogue? Bronn's always been an insolent black-hearted rogue. That's what I like about him"
Tyrion, 'A Song of Ice & Fire' by George R.R. Martin
"Tyrion:'My b**ch sister has sold you a lame horse. The girl's dim witted.'
Bronn:'If I wanted wits, I'd marry you.'"
The book is actually packed with those, but those two were in the last couple of pages so I remember them best.

'All that is solid melts into air'
