Challenge, Day 10: Quotes!

Today will be a day of quotations. I selected the following quotes because I wish I'd thought or said them first, because I find them humorous or sweet, or just because I plain old like them for whatever reason. I might do a little writing for my own benefit, but we shall see if it will end up here or not. Remember, this is my challenge and my rules :-). Enjoy! Oh, wait a moment for the disclaimer: These have all been pulled from sort of willy-nilly as I saw one I liked, so please don't assume that I'm a fan of the author or source in general. I don't even know who half of them are, really... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh!" he whispered.
