I saw lannan13 do this and it sounds like fun. Only this time, there will be more rules.

Rules:

1. I will be making the decision which quotes make it.
2. The eight that get the most quotes in 200 posts will go on the the hall of fame war.
3. A winner will be judged from there through rules specified in another forum.

Let the quote battle begin!

A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it...so I said "Implants?"

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea... does that mean that one enjoys it?

God must love stupid people. He made SO many.

Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back.

Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.

The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

We live in a society where pizza gets to your house before the police.

The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
Winston Churchill

Study history, study history. In history lies all the secrets of statecraft.
Winston Churchill

History is written by the victors.
Winston Churchill

For my part, I consider that it will be found much better by all parties to leave the past to history, especially as I propose to write that history myself.
Winston Churchill

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
Karl Marx

History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing into the future. To try to hold fast is to be swept aside.
John F. Kennedy

The very ink with which history is written is merely fluid prejudice.
Mark Twain

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.
Thomas Jefferson

History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
Maya Angelou

History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.

Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.
Thomas Jefferson

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility - I welcome it.
John F. Kennedy

We would like to live as we once lived, but history will not permit it.
John F. Kennedy

We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world or to make it the last.
John F. Kennedy

"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves." - Edward R. Murrow

"First they came for the Jews, but I did nothing because I'm not a Jew. Then they came for the socialists, but I did nothing because I'm not a socialist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I did nothing because I'm not a Catholic. Finally, they came for me, but by then there was no one left to help me." - Pastor Father Niemoller

"What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul." - BILLY MADISON
