Friend of mine is an IT manager of a fairly large engineering firm. In his office he used to have a sign:

"The beatings will continue until the moral improves."

"Don't know. Mongo only pawn, in game of life"

This is from Blazing Saddles. If you don't know the movie, Mongo is the lackey/goon of the bad guy and does only what he is told. He has the mentality of a four year old. When asked a simple question by the good guy, he spouts out probably the most prophetic line of the whole movie.

Then of course, there is "Abbey Somebody" from another Mel Brooks movie, Young Frankenstein.
When Igor (pronounced Eye-gore) gets the wrong brain for the monster. Dr. Frankenstein asks,
"Who's brain is it?"
Igor replies "Abbey Somebody"
Dr. Frankenstein "Abbey Who?"
Igor "Abbey Normal"

A photograph is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good.

Putting on a Ritz! I love Mel Brooks.

"This is liberty hall, you can spit on the mat and call the cat a bastard."

Favorite saying of John Grimes, found in almost any novel written by A. Bertram Chandler 1912-1984.
John Grimes is the legendary spaceman known as science fiction's own "Captain Hornblower."

It can be a movie line, part of a poem, a saying in your family, whatever. It can also mean a number of different reason, you just like the quote, it's something you live by, something taught by a relative you care deeply about.

So what is your favorite quote and its meaning??

Me, I am a movie buff. LOVE movies. Some famous lines speak to me whiles others just make me laugh. But, my favorite quote.

"All I have in this world is my word and my balls. I break them for no one" Scarface

Reason: Everyone knows I have a weird mind. But I like this becasue now a days a man's word isn't his bond anymore. For me, I'd like to think mine is. So if I give someone my word. You can bet I will follow through with it.

Close second only cause it cracks me up no matter how many times I hear it:

"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die"
Ha The Princess Bride great movie actually my #2 quote comes from that one as well. I introduce myself as Inigo Montoya all the time to see who gets it.

1. It comes down to a simple choice really. Get busy livin' or get busy dyin' - Andy Dufrene 1994
2. We are men of action lies do not become us. - the dreaded Pirate Roberts (aka Westley) 1987
