I work mainly at schools, and came across a class room full of Bible quotes, but one was more prominent and not a Bible verse. It said "Only dead fish goes with the flow". Now I find this ironic inside this class room. The message was clear - no room for non believers. (Government school gr. 5)

What luck for rulers that men do not think. Adolf Hitler.

I do not know if this said by Hitler or not, but if it was, what a bummer.

Do y'all have different books of the Bible than I do? Are y'all Gideons? Who are the ******' Gideons? Ever met one? NO! Ever seen one? NO! But they're all over the ******' world puttin' Bibles in hotel rooms. Every hotel room- "This Bible was placed here by a Gideon" When?! I been here all day. I ain't seen ****! I saw the housekeeper come and go. I saw the minibar guy come and go. I never laid eyes on a ******' Gideon. What are they- ninjas? Where are they? Where're they from? Gidea? What the **** are these people?

I'm gonna capture a Gideon. I'm gonna make that my hobby. I'm gonna call the front desk one day. "Yeah. I don't seem to have a Bible in my room."

Hi everyone. I'd like to add my own quotes. I find my fave quotes changing from time to time. But I am into these quotes now.
Love quotes
Quote
Love is more than just a feeling: it's a process requiring continual attention. Loving well takes laughter loyalty and wanting more to be able to say 'I understand' than to hear 'You're right.' - Molleen Matsumura

Quote
I truly feel that there are as many ways of loving as there are people in the world and as there are days in the life of those people. - Mary S. Calderone


Funny quotes
Quote
You know me Esme. I couldn't subtract a fart from a plate of beans. - Terry Pratchett

Quote
Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason. - Anonymous

Love quote:
Quote
Never, never marry, my dear fellow! That's my advice: never marry till you can say to yourself that you have done all you are capable of, and until you have ceased to love the woman of your choice and have seen her plainly as she is, or else you will make a cruel and irrevocable mistake. Marry when you are old and good for nothing--or all that is good and noble in you will be lost. It will all be wasted on trifles. Yes! Yes! Yes! Don't look at me with such surprise. If you marry expecting anything from yourself in the future, you will feel at every step that for you all is ended, all is closed except the drawing room, where you will be ranged side by side with a court lackey and an idiot!... But what's the good?...

I've got a million good quotes, some of which are pertinent to sceptisism.  There are too many to post here, but I've put up a selection here.

The door was the way to... to... The Door was The Way. Good. Capital letters were always the best way of dealing with things you didn't have a good answer to.
