Pretty simple. ;) Just if at all possible, please cite the source, no matter how well-known. I'll start with one of my favorites:

"If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid."


Q from 'Q Who'.

Favorite quotes in general or favorite Trek quotes? Going with Trek:

I wonder if the Emperor Honorious watching the Visigoths riding over the last hill truly realized that the Roman Empire was about to fall. This is all just another page in history isn't it? Will this be the end of our civilization? Turn the page.
Not certain I got all that right but you know which one, Picard to Guinan BoBW
"All this has happened before --"
"But it doesn't have to happen again. Not if we make up our minds to change. Take a different path. Right here, right now."

Pretty close though:

I wonder if the Emperor Honorious
watching the Visigoths coming over
the seventh hill could truly
realize that the Roman Empire was
about to fall. This is really
just another page of history,
isn't it? Will this be the end
of our civilization?
(shrugs)
... Turn the page.


EDIT: Turns out that the final version was somewhere between the script and SG's memory.
Only two things are infinite - the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe: Albert Einstein.

Doctor Bashir: What are you eating?
Chief O'Brien: I'm not eating, I'm chewing.
Doctor Bashir: Chewing what?
Chief O'Brien: Gum. It's traditional. I had the replicator create me some.
Doctor Bashir: They just chewed it?
Chief O'Brien: No, they infused the gum with flavor.
Doctor Bashir: What did you infuse it with?
Chief O'Brien: Scotch.

There is only one way of avoiding the war – that is the overthrow of this society. However, as we are too weak for this task, the war is inevitable. -L. Trotsky, 1939
