This might be a topic idk, but favorite quote and why. I’ll go first “what you egg?” Shakespeare, why because now I’ll be using it as an insult
My favorite quote:
“If you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does.”
― Groucho Marx
Now, you tell me what you know.
“A mirror scratched reflects no image —
And this is the silence of wisdom.”
– Edgar Lee Masters
Why? I guess because even we career motormouths have our aspirational moments…? Or some junk.

Why is it when ever someone ask me to recite a quote my mind just goes blank and I stop breathing. Lol. Nope not going to happen. Sorry for not having any input. I usually have to look on the internet for a quote then it sends me down a rat hole. Go figure.
Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think.
“I drank what?” - Socrates
I could probably pick something randomly from the man, but I’ve always loved this particular quote from Kurt Vonnegut - “And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”
Go and never darken my towels again.
I think this one a lot…
“But how can we know that dragons did not exist? We have never actually BEEN to the Dark Ages.”
– Cressida Cowell, A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons
This is a favorite quote because as a kid it gave me something to respond with every time someone decided to tell me dragons didn’t count as a favorite animal.
