So bookworm i saw this done a couple times before, and thought i looked fun. The point from of the debate is whoever has the best five quotes by the end of the debate wins. Any quote will do. Oh and one quote per round please.

Heres my first quote,

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former" - Albert Einstein

I have talked to bookworm and his reasons to have forfeited the previous rounds are acceptable so I will be skipping this round to make it even.

2."Anger is never without Reason, but seldom with a good one."-Benjamin Franklin

3." Whatever you are, be a good one."-Abraham Lincoln

5." If two men agree on everything, you may be sure that one of them is doing the thinking."-Lydon B. Johnson

I would just like to thank my opponent one last time for a thoroughly entertaining quote debate. I enjoyed finding funny, and deep quotes. Good Luck.

1) "I just broke up with someone and the last thing she said to me was "You'll never find anyone like me again!" I'm thinking, "I should hope not! If I don't want you, why would I want someone like you." -Unknown

2) "Life is one fool thing after another whereas love is two fool things after each other." -Oscar Wilde

3)"You know the speed of light, so what's the speed of dark?" -Unknown

4)"Where there's a will, there are five hundred relatives." -Unknown

5)"When in charge, ponder. When in doubt, mumble. When in trouble, delegate" -Unknown
