Great Quotes & Movie Lines To Live By


If a bibliophile reads, admires and collects books what do you call a person who reads, admires and collects quotes? 
Quodophile? 
I really don't know the correct term, if there is any or if not quodophile. So if you know, it would be very helpful to share it here.
I have been collecting quotes for a year now.

Whenever I am reading, whether a book or articles on the internet, I always have a pen, a notebook  or a notepad ready, whichever is needed. I also take down lines from movies. I just love them! So here are the latest on my list, which, by the way, is getting bigger. They are not in any particular order of significance because each of them is great.

  • Right is right even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong even if everyone is for it.William Penn
  • I object to violence because when it appears to do good the good is temporary; but the evil it does is permanent. Mahatma Gandhi
  • That service is the noblest which is rendered for its own sake. Mahatma Gandhi
  • The earth's crust has a skin disease, a case of microbes infecting its crust, & that sickness is MAN. Peter Flawn
  • Time is free but it is priceless. You can’t own it but you can use it. You can’t keep it but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back. Harvey MacKay
  • Life is what you make it. Always has been. Always will be. Eleanor Roosevelt
  • The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking. A. A. Milne
  • Bureaucrats write memoranda both because they appear to be busy when they are writing and because the memos, once written, immediately become proof that they were busy. Charles Peters
  • Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival. C.S. Lewis
  • There are people who, instead of listening to what is being said to them, are already listening to what they are going to say themselves. Albert Guinon
  • Live a good life. If there are gods & they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius
  • When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly halfway between them. It is possible for one side to be simply wrong. Richard Dawkins
