    "Trouble rather the tiger in his lair than the sage amongst his books. For to you the Kingdoms and their armies are things mighty and enduring, but to him they are but toys of the moment, to be overturned by the flicking of a finger."

    As made-up movie stuff is acceptable:

    “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

    Another one..
    "Whatcha kill Jesse fer? Whatcha kill Jesse fer?"-Karl Childers from the movie "Sling Blade".



    Back when I was still working EMS, my shift loved the movie Sling Blade and watched it dozens and dozens of times. When I was shift supervisor, I used this quote, recited with a Karl Childers accent following times of great stress on calls that did not go well. Sounds heartless, but levity keeps you from going off the rails sometimes.

    Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

    All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible .
