Probably just action film ones, shallow that I am.
I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.
Listen. Understand. That Terminator is out there. It can’t be reasoned with, it can’t be bargained with. It doesn’t feel pity of remorse or fear and it absolutely will not stop. Ever. Until you are dead.
And some bicycling ones
When my legs hurt, I say: “Shut up legs! Do what I tell you to do!”

Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.
Half the Tory members opposite are crooks
When Sir Winton Turnbull [who represented a large rural seat] was raving and ranting on the adjournment and shouted: “I am a Country member”. Gough Whitlam interjected “I remember”. He could not understand why, for the first time in all the years he had been speaking in the House, there was instant and loud applause from both sides.Posted 4 years agoChubbyBlokeInLycraMember

I always thought it was a slightly odd fishing tale
A rugby coach being interviwed and sounding qute upbeat when the interviewer pointed out some stats that didn’t really back up what he was saying

“We are not here in this world to find elegant solutions, pregnant with initiative, or to serve the ways and modes of profitable progress. No, we are here to provide for all those who are weaker and hungrier, more battered and crippled than ourselves. That is our only certain good and great purpose on earth, and if you ask me about those insoluble economic problems that may arise if the top is deprived of their initiative, I would answer ‘To hell with them.’ The top is greedy and mean and will always find a way to take care of themselves. They always do.”

One that always makes me chuckle is from the unlikely source that is Henry Blofeld. Years ago when commentating on a game in which New Zealand were playing he had cause to mention their player Stephen Cunis. He then said:
“It’s an odd name, Cunis, neither one thing nor the other”.Posted 4 years ago
Economics, said Mr Stanley, is 50% psychology … What we need, apparently, is not statesman but hypnotists, not scientists, but witchdoctors, not confidence born of scientific prediction of the future, but confidence created by a political Confidence Trick.

In all seriousness, my absolute favourite quote of recent years is from Ozzy Osbourne:Posted 4 years ago
I met Tony Blair a couple of years ago, and he said to me, ‘I was in a band once, and I could never get the riff to ‘Iron Man’ right,’I thought, ‘Why are you telling me about ‘Iron Man’ when there’s a war going on?’
