One of my favourites is from our own "beachgirl1952"

"They laughed, because she was different ...
she laughed, because they were all the same"


Another is from “Up to me” by Bob Dylan

If I'd thought about it I never would've done it,
I guess I would've let it slide,
If I'd paid attention to what others were thinking,

the heart inside me would've died.
But I was just too stubborn to ever be governed

by enforced insanity,
Someone had to reach for the rising star,
I guess it was up to me.

I feel sure you would be a reliably good natured shipmate, so "you can be my wingman anytime." Iceman to Maverick at the end of Top Gun.
