Although I love the "What a ride" quote that Celestialsailor used, the one that goes well with it is from Ashley Montagu.

"The idea is to die young as late as possible".

My favourite quotes are ' It is amazing what you can accomplish if you don't try to take credit for it'.
and 'life is what causes the collapse of the wave function'

He who would have much to do,
Let him take a boat
Or a woman

I think that "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than have to have a frontal lobotamy" was originally by Dorothy Parker, along with a ton of other originals, like, "Men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses". And, after a rival waited for her to enter the doorway first and said, "Age before beauty!", Dorothy Parker quipped, "Pearls before swine!".

As a retired teacher, I like the first.

The second reminds of of Oscar Wilde's "Nothing succeeds like excess."
