expressions and quotations

we all have favorite expressions and quotations (ive got many). feel free to share yours, as well as where you heard them, who wrote or said them...and anything else youd like to include.

*****

"i cried because i had no shoes,
then i met a man who had no feet."

im not sure who wrote it, but i read it in shes come undone, by wally lamb.

*****

"you cannot hold a torch to light another’s path without brightening your own."

i heard this several years ago - not sure where - and from what i understand, mother teresa spoke those words.

*****

p.s. i wasnt sure where to put this thread, but decided on good reading because memorable expressions and quotations certainly qualify as just that.

I cried because I had no hands;
Then I met a man who had no chips.

If you're going to get wet, might as well go swimming.

we all came over on different ships,
but we're in the same boat now.

You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need
