The Devil: Your soul is like your appendix.You never use it.

Elliot Richards: Oh yeah? If it's so useless, how come you want it so bad?

The Devil: Oh, aren't you a clever one?

Faust: How comes it then that thou art now out of hell with me?

Mefistofeles: Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it. Thinks thou that I, who saw the face of God and tasted the eternal joys of heaven, am not tormented with ten thousand hells in being deprived of everlasting bliss?

Rincewind had been told that death was just like going into another room. The difference is, when you shout, "Where's my clean socks?", no-one answers.

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

My great-grandmother was your great-great-grandfather's mistress, so how about it?

If thou didst ever thy dear father love, revenge his foul and most unnatural murder. Tis given out that, sleeping in my orchard, a serpent stung me. So the whole ear of Denmark is by a forged process of my death rankly abused. But know, thou noble youth, the serpent that did sting thy father's life now wears his crown. Thy uncle, ay, that incestuous, that adulterous beast, with witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts- O wicked wit and gifts, that have the power so to seduce!- won to his shameful lust the will of my most seeming virtuous queen.

Was ever woman in this humour woo'd?
Was ever woman in this humour won?
I'll have her; but I will not keep her long.
What! I, that kill'd her husband and his father,
To take her in her heart's extremest hate,
With curses in her mouth, tears in her eyes,
The bleeding witness of her hatred by;
Having God, her conscience, and these bars against me,
And I nothing to back my suit at all,
But the plain devil and dissembling looks,
And yet to win her, all the world to nothing!
Ha!

-- Shakespeare, Richard III I.ii

My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me
That I must love a loathed enemy.

Shakesapeare: Romeo and Juliet

Let me have men about me that are fat,
Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights.
Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look,
He thinks too much; such men are dangerous.

Shakespeare -- Julius Caesar

But we have doubt,” said Isabel. “Thinking is doubting. It amounts to the same thing.

Wit has truth in it; wisecracking is simply calisthenics with words. Dorothy Parker

wit. the salt with which the american humorist spoils his intellectual cookery by leaving it out.

a person unlearns arrogance when he knows he is always among worthy human beings; being alone fosters presumption.
