I've also had lots of quotes (list is incomplete):

"Never mistake activity for achievement. " - John Wooden

"Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind." - Emerson

"The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views ... which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering."
-- Doctor Who
"Because if you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.

You make a big election about small things...

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity. And I'm not sure about the former." ~Albert Einstein
