Choice Quote Meme

I don't know if this has been done before, differently or better, but I'm a big fan of a choice quote and I want to see what your favorite quote is.

Please leave me a comment with your answer to this question:

If you had to choose one, and only one, quote as your favorite, what would it be? Please include attribution.

Mine is centered around insight into the creative process
(i.e. what goes on in writers' minds):

I just sit at the typewriter and curse a bit.
-P G Wodehouse (1881-1975), on his technique as a writer, _Collier's_, 1956

I so identify with PG Wodehouse's technique.





UPDATE:
A Man with Bread dropped me an e-mail with his quote, since his login failed. Here it is:

Time is the fire in which we burn...
-Star Trek


CaelieSon tried to access the Choice Quote Meme post as I was updating it, so she got an error. Blarg and bother, confound the unlucky timing! Here is her quote:

Go to Heaven for the climate, go to Hell for the company.
-Mark Twain
