This is misleading perhaps as a title. These are not my quotes, just quotes I like.

1 Cancer Man's Monologue from "Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man" - X FilesContents like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that no one ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So, you're stuck with mostly undefinable whipped mint crap, mindlessly wolfed down when there's nothing else to eat while you're watching the game. Sure, once in a while you get a peanut butter cup or an English toffee but it's gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. In the end, you're left with nothing but broken bitsfilled with hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts, which if you are desperate enough to eat leaves nothing but an empty box of useless brown paper wrappers.

2 Dennis Ritchie, Unix co-creatorContents

Unix is simple. It just takes a genius to understand its simplicity.

3 Linus TorvaldsContents

If you get bitten by a bug, tough luck...the one thing I won't do is feel sorry for you. In fact, I might ask you to do it all over again, just to get more information. I'm a heartless bastard.

4 KuzcoContents

Yeah, I'm a Lamma again :-)

5 EinsteinContents

When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, you think it's only a minute. But when you sit on a hot stove for a minute, you think it's two hours. That's relativity.
