Some of my favourite quotes

I often visit the Think Exist website to look for new and interesting quotes. Some of my favourites are listed below. I know there are lots, but take your time and read through them and let me know what you think. Also, what is your favourite quote?

“One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.” ~A. A. Milne (Creator of Winnie the Pooh)

“A safe but sometimes chilly way of recalling the past is to force open a crammed drawer. If you are searching for anything in particular you don't find it, but something falls out at the back that is often more interesting.” ~James Matthew Barrie (Creator of Peter Pan)

“The belief that there is only one truth, and that oneself is in possession of it, is the root of all evil in the world” ~Max Born

“What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, 'This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!' Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, 'Never have I heard anything more divine'?” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

“Become who you are.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

“Woman understands children better than man does, but man is more childlike than woman” ~Friedrich Nietzsche
