    My most favorite is
    "the more you strive and the more you struggle and the more obstacles you surround, the more powerful you become, the more values you have, the more money you make, the more master you have of the world and you only get there through failures, never an easy way." - daddy

    "What good is sitting alone in your room" - Liza Minnelli

    "Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful." - Warren Buffett.

    "When I was an adolescent, I was obsessed with having many commercial things, cars, clothes, stupid things. Now that I have all that, I conclude/understand that the superfluous things can turn to you into a very stupid idiot-type. In East Germany there were very few things, but there was also a feeling of solidarity that no longer exists. Now we are up to the neck in consumption, the ego, the individualism. Now before friendship, it is merchandise." -Till Lindemann


    ----------------------------


    "You pretend to buck the system, pretend to be a rebel, claim to hate rules. But all you do is substitute your own rules for society’s. That’s a nice, simple rule – tell the blunt, honest truth in the starkest, darkest way. And what will be, will be. What will be, should be. And everyone else is a coward. But you’re wrong. Someone cowardly should not call someone an idiot. People aren’t tactful or polite just because it’s nice. They do it because they’ve got an ounce of humility. Because they know that they will make mistakes, and they know that their actions have consequences, and they know that those consequences are their fault. Why do you want so badly not to be human, House?

    .......

    That’s all right, you don’t have to say anything. Just let me soak into your subconscious. You think that the only truth that matters is the truth that can be measured. Good intentions don’t count, what’s in your heart doesn’t count, caring doesn’t count, that a man’s life can’t be measured by how many tears are shed when he dies. It’s because you can’t measure them. It’s because you don’t want to measure them. Doesn’t mean it’s not real. And even if I’m wrong, you’re still miserable. Did you really think that your life’s purpose was to sacrifice yourself and get nothing in return? No. You believe there is no purpose to anything. Even the lives you save you dismiss. You turn the one decent thing in your life and you taint it, strip it of all meaning. You’re miserable for nothing. I don’t know why you’d want to live."

    -Jack, talking to Dr. House in the "No Reason" episode of House
