I gave myself a challenge to just name, for ten minutes, whatever quotes came to my head. I think it reveals more about me than I'd otherwise admit:
"My biggest fear in life is that the universe works." -- Chronic Future

"Like gases escaping through holes in our layers -- Are there holes in our prayers, when we pray for ourselves before others?" -- Troubled Hubble

"I hold it true, whate'er befall; I feel it when I sorrow most: 'tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all." -- Tennyson

"We don't need a key... We were already free... Cruising along... To a Mexican song..." -- Trocadero

"I caught this morning morning's minion, kingdom-of-daylight's dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn falcon in his riding / Of the rolling level underneath him, steady air and striding." -- Hopkins

"And on the pedestal these words appear: MY NAME IS OZYMANDIAS, KING OF KINGS, LOOK ON MY WORKS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR. Nothing beside remains -- round the decay, the lone and level sands stretch far away." -- Shelley

"Vanity of vanities; all things are vanity" -- Ecclesiastes

"You're one badass fucking fractal." -- Jonathan Coulton

"But then you drove a wedge between our two-forms / Now everything is so complexified!" -- The Klein Four Group

"Cut off your head. Shut up your face. Here is the time; now is the place. Cut off your head. Why should you wait? Don't think about it... it's much too late." -- Jim's Big Ego

"Exploded stars and space debris taught itself to make some things like us -- was that all? What was there before the bang; how did nothing come to end -- at once?" -- The Faint

"And I won't fear change, 'cause if something is lost, then there's something to frame / I just sing what I have, in the heavens above, in the song in the sky, a fire burns, a fire burns, a fire burns ... and it's for you." -- Steel Train

"Let the current carry me -- far away. Let the current carry me away." -- Blue Man Group

"Three point one four one five nine, two six five three five eight nine seven nine, three two three eight four six two six, four three three eight, three two seven nine, five zero one three, eight four one nine, four one eight nine, seven one six nine, three nine nine three..." -- π

"I'm so far... so far from Home." -- Weebl

"There's no tellin', I was so confused / I try, but I can't help you choose / Tucson is so far away..." -- Gin Blossoms

"I say more. The just man justices; keeps grace, that keeps all his goings graces: acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is: Christ." -- Hopkins.

"It won't matter much at all. We flew -- but now it's time to fall. And the tree-line's gettin' closer now. But I think that I get it now." -- The Uggos

"He shall hold thee -- when his passion shall have spent its novel force -- something better than his dog; a little dearer than his horse." -- Tennyson

"You know what they say, about passing ships? They're old ladies in leopard print. Who've lived their lives with telescopes. Who've made mistakes, but are now too old." -- Troubled Hubble

"I must apologize for not participating in symmetry." -- Chronic Future
