CALL TO ACTION - Quotes Needed for Embroidered Quilt

Now Yes yes... i am still working on the camera case and i made some progress tonight while i was watching my lectures on neurogenic shock. BUT.

I have been toying with an idea to embroider a quilt for a long time... Now i don't want to do an entire quilt (stupid idea and i KNOW i would never finish it...) but i have been considering creating a "footer" panel and then using a nice fabric for the rest. Just a small single bed quilt about the same size as my pink butterfly quilt i made last year. You can just see the pink quilt in the back ground of this post. [CLICK].

The post mentioned above was also about making this quilt. you can see the footer i have there is very very complicated and will take a lot of time. I want to make a 'stitch sampler' that i can turn into a quilt. So i had a brainwave tonight after having a look at Needle N Thread.

Why not Write a quote on the fabric and use different stitches and then have little drawings around it???
Mary did a fantastic example on her "Quick Brown Fox" sampler.

 A Quilt Quote...

This should be fun.
Everyone can send me a message with their FAVORITE QUOTE of all time. I am thinking more literary quotes here, NOT biblical quotes if that is ok... However i wont mind.

I'm quite sure that you will all come up with things that are better than mine. (here are a couple i got while on the phone and from friends earlier...)

EDIT: I have found the quote!!!! please keep sending me quotes (yes even the ones that i got via email because you were toooo embarrassed...)

Here is the quote:

Confucius say:  
"Man who want pretty nurse, must be patient."

(Note i am a nursing student and my fiance is just starting med school)

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that every good man must be in want of a wife..." :-)

" To be, or not to be..."

"I think therefore i am"

"The pen is mightier than the sword"

" He who lives by the sword dies by the sword"

"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"

"All power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely"

"A picture is worth a thousand words"

"carpe Diem"

"Someday your prince charming will come. Mine just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is too stubborn to ask for directions."

"To err is human, to forgive divine."

"Early to bed and early to rise, Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."

"Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny." 

anyway any ideas appreciated :-)

Then i need to figure out HOW to do the quilt design... the stitches will be the easy part methinks!!!
