    "Pain or damage don't end the world, or despair or ****ing beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man and give some back." - Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) to A. W. Merrick (Jeffery Jones) in the "E. B. Was Left Out" episode of Deadwood after Merrick's newspaper was vandalized. Merrick was depressed and did not want to continue with the paper.

    Hi,
    A few of mine:

    "When you have to shoot, shoot don't talk!" - Lee Wallach, in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

    "Next year this time we'll be millionaires!" - Dell Trotter, from Only Fools and Horses

    "We all have our limitations, Freddy. Fortunately, I discovered that taste and style were commodities that people desired. Freddy, what I am saying is: know your limitations. You are a moron." - Michael Caine in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

    From Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
    Gandalf to Frodo about Gollum
    Frodo: "It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance."
    Gandalf: "Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo's hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment."

    Mrk

    When we hurt each other we should write it down in the sand, so the winds of forgiveness can make it go away for good.

    When we help each other we should chisel it in stone, lest we never forget the love of a friend. ~ Christian H. Godefroy
