Winston Churchill, after being told he was drunk by a pompous old bag:

Ooh, heres a really BIG quote.
"I wanted to creat an exotic charicter, not angry in the traditional villain sense, where he's hell-bent on cruelty, but more of a gloating power, very pleased with himself. The only thing that really sets him off is any threat to his arogance. Volrath is an extremely arrogant charicter." Anson Maddocks -he's some guy who works on the Magic: The Gathering cards, a charicter designer I guess

"Life's too short to play chess." Henry James Byron

"Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition." Howell Forgy 1908 -when a Naval Lt. at Pearl Harbour
A little more info on Valedhelgwath's quote:
Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition.
By Commander Howell M. Forgy, USN (ChC), (1908-1972). When he made that quote as a Lieutenant (Junior Grade) on 07 DEC 1941, he was serving as Chaplain on the heavy cruiser New Orleans. The ammo crew was flagging, so he said his famous words to encourage them. A popular wartime song was later written using his quote for its title and theme.
This will be in French - translated, will loose much of its charm!

"A Dieu mon ame
Ma vie au roy
Mon coeur aux dames

- Thomas A. Edison
"Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you." - Leroy 'Satchel' Paige
Eryan's little one actually says:
"My soul is for God
my life is for the King
my heart is for the Ladies
and the honour is for myself."
(rubbish translation, but I think it will do for the ones among you who don't understand French.)

"Other men live to eat, while I eat to live." Socrates
"Rock Journalism is people who can't write, preparing stories based on interviews with people who can't talk, in order to amuse people who can't read."- Frank Zappa
I think another of that guy's quotes was that he never took drugs. Listening to his music, I can only assume he must have taken so many, he just couldn't remember taking any.

"Men build bridges and throw railroads across deserts, and yet they contend successfully that the job of sewing on a button is beyond them." Heywood Broun, (1888 - 1939)
