"As a tennis player you can win and you can lose, and you have to be ready for both. I practised self-control as a kid. But as you get older they both - winning and losing - get easier." - Rafael Nadal

“Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:”

Just rememeber two main rules for the beginning:

And better be alone, than with whoever." - Omar Khayyam

This is one of my very favorite's of his. I'm sure I've posted it before, but I'll post it again:

"The moving finger writes, and having written moves on. Nor all thy piety nor all thy wit, can cancel half a line of it." - Omar Khayyam
One of mine too... oh boy, so many: "here with a loaf of bread...."

The entire Rubaiyat is filled with some of my favourite quotes/stanzas. Two that I quote most::

XXI
Ah, my Belov'ed fill the Cup that clears
To-day of Past Regrets and Future Fears:
To-morrow!--Why, To-morrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday's Sev'n Thousand Years.

and

LXIV
Strange, is it not? that of the myriads who
Before us pass'd the door of Darkness through,
Not one returns to tell us of the Road,
Which to discover we must travel too.

Re: Favourite Quotes

My other standby is a fallback I use if I'm getting outquoted in an argument

From Shakespeare: "The fool hath stored in his memory an army of good words."

After announcing that, it's best to sniff haughtily and like the Iser, roll out of there.. lol
